World's Smallest Food Critic: Dragon Chips

by in View All Posts, May 14th, 2009

Who knew if I simply baked kale until it was crispy, then called it “dragon chips,” my kids would gobble it down like potato chips?

The recipe:
1 bunch fresh kale, cleaned and dried thoroughly
Olive oil spray
Sea salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Remove the stems from the kale and tear the leaves into smallish pieces. Make sure that the leaves are really dry. Spread them evenly in 1 layer on 2 baking sheets — depending on the size of your bunch of kale and your baking sheets, you may need to do this in batches. Spritz with olive oil (any vegetable spray works well, too) and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the leaves are crispy but still very green. Flip and cook about 2 minutes more. Remove from oven and serve.
