If you love Kale so much, why don’t you marry it?

I would.

Kale at it’s finest.

Especially if it is in a “chip” form.

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Grab a bunch of Kale, trim the stems off, and wash the leaves.  If the leaves are big, tear them in half.  Place the leaves on a baking sheet, and splash some extra virgin olive oil and some salt over the leaves.  Toss the leaves to make sure the extra virgin olive oil and salt are evenly distributed among the leaves.  Place in the oven for about 15-20 minutes — each oven is different, so check at around 10 min, 15 min, and so on.  There are different recipes online, but I just like “salt.”

What’s great about making Kale chips is that if they are not done, you can put them back in the oven for another couple of minutes to your liking of crispiness.  If they are too done, they taste good as well (at least I like them).  Each batch may be different, and you’ll learn what you like and don’t like.  It’s better than paying $6.00 for bag at the store.  Holler!

You see that crispy one in the middle? It has my name all over it.

  1. Lisa, I haven’t found any in the local markets. Maybe I should go back to that store that sells sausages in the bottles. I might find some there.

  2. Veggie chips?? Tops! Oh, and your title made me chortle out loud at the computer monitor. Where does this “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it” phrase COME from? My kids use it too, but they can’t enlighten me as to its origins. Can you?
