Kale Chips (as prepared for Feasting on the Farm Event)
Kale Chips are kale leaves brushed in olive oil and baked in the oven on a baking sheet... That's it! Kale chips are perfect broken or crunched over beet/citrus salad as a garnish. Be sure to brush olive oil on leaves evenly to ensure even cooking. Pre-heat oven to 400 F, brush olive oil evenly on each kale leaf. Place each individually on baking sheets, edges touching but no overlap of leaves. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, rotating pan mid-way to ensure even cooking. Leaves should are done when they're crunchy and dark. The end result should be crispy, dark leaves- in roughly the same size the leaves were before baking.
