Crispy Kale Chips

I bought a big bunch of Dinosaur Kale at the Farmer's Market the other day with the intention on trying kale chips which is what I made tonight as a side dish for dinner.  TIP:  Prepare the kale a day in advance (wash and dry thoroughly with salad spinner and paper towels).


1 bunch Dinosaur Kale, washed and dried, torn or cut into big pieces (or any other kale you may prefer or have)
Olive oil
Salt (preferably Hawaiian sea salt (fine)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix the kale with enough oil to lightly coat (be careful to use too much.  Approximately 1 or 2 tablespoons should suffice.  Sprinkle with salt.  Place on baking sheets.  I actually sprayed a little shortening on both pans.  Place the kale leaves as pictured above.   Do not crowd.  Bake for approximately 10 to 15 minutes.  Chips should be crispy but not brown.

Serve immediately.

NOTE:  I thought these chips had a slight Korean nori taste.
