It was a little intimidating to see so much kale sitting in my kitchen. I had no idea what to do with it and I wasn't about to make a green smoothie - I'm not quite there yet. I stirred a bit into some meat sauce for my lasagna. But I was still left with a lot of kale. A friend had been making kale chips recently, so I decided to give it a try.
Wash kale and tear the leaves off the stems into bite-sized pieces. I've found that bigger pieces are better as they're quite brittle after baking and tend to break into smaller pieces anyway. I don't own a salad spinner so I shook out the leaves and let them air dry a bit on these racks we inherited from our good friends who were moved to the states.
