1 large bunch of kale, approximately 12 cups
2-3 T. extra virgin best quality olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Remove the ends of the stems of the kale and rinse well. Dry the leaves well using a salad spinner or towel. Tear the leaves into bite size pieces.
2. Place the dried kale leaves into a mixing bowl. Pour the olive oil and massage into the leaves well. Place leaves on a baking sheet – might need to divide between two baking sheets. Season the leaves sea salt and pepper to taste and then place them into the oven to bake.
3. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the leaves are crunchy and slightly browned—not burned—around their edges. Let cool on rack for 30 minutes before munching!
