Why aren't you making Kale chips?!

I recently got together with a good friend and made a great meal. But, I think there was one obvious star: Kale chips! Seen below cuddling closely with the onion, mushroom, pasta dish they went with.
Oven cook time is about 5-8 minutes at 400 degrees F until the Kale is crispy to the touch, or crunchy to the bite. Note: I tear the whole Kale leaves into bite-sized pieces before baking.

It recently came to my attention that some people are adding olive oil to the Kale before baking it (or worse, they hate Kale chips altogether! Shame.) and that is fairly unnecessary. All we need to do is evaporate the water present in the vegetable and it will dry out and become crunchy. I usually add a little salt, pepper and nutritional yeast to the kale when I put it in the oven. But you should also try all of your favorite seasonings too!

Kale is great.
