Kale Chips

I am very, very pro-kale. This doesn't always make me the most popular cook on the block, but it makes be very, very happy. Here's one of the things I have learned about the super-nutrient-wonderful-delicious-powerfood: Even those who shudder at the site of the vegetable often fall for kale chips. It's the gateway dish to kale addiction.

You can buy kale chips at the store, but they are precious. In gourmet stores they often ring in at $8 for a handful's worth. Pshaw. DIY or bust. In the simplest preparation, all you need to do is remove the stems, rinse and dry the leaves, spread them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, salt, and bake at a low temperature until they're crispy and melt in your mouth.
