Roasted kale is ADDICTIVE. And good for you.

Roasted kale recipes have been floating around the internet for good reason. It's astonishingly good! And good for you.

Kale is highly nutritious. It's a good source of vitamins A, B6, C, K, potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, folic acid, copper, fiber and carotenoids. And kale has fewer than 40 calories per cooked cup.

There are only three ingredients to this tasty treat: kale, olive oil and salt.

I prefer Dino Kale. It's also known as Tuscan, cavolo nero and lacinato and but "dino" is more fun to say. Curly kale works well too.

Remove the kale from the ribs and tear into small pieces. Make sure the kale is as dry as possible as water will steam the kale and it won't get crispy. I run mine through a salad spinner then let it sit on the counter to dry. Toss the kale with a little olive oil and spread out on a baking sheet lined with foil. Roast at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes (until it starts to "crisp") flip and roast another 5-7 minutes until the pieces are crispy chips.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt to taste.

Devour then head to the store for more kale.

I added about 1/3 cup vinegar to the oil and mixed it in the food processor. I then tossed the oil mixture with the kale. Delicious!
