baked kale chips: a revelation!

I have discovered a new favorite food: kale chips. You probably won't believe me until you have tried it for yourself, but when kale leaves are baked they become delightfully crispy, and the bitterness totally mellows out, resulting in a texture-flavour combination that is simply addictive. It's really unbelievable - I had no idea this kind of depth of flavour was lurking underneath that intense bitterness. I actually traded a chicken wing with my boyfriend in exchange for the remaining kale chips on his plate. I would eat this for a snack in the middle of the day. I may even go make some more right now...(oh yeah, did I mention how stupid fast and easy these are to make???)

Kale chips: 
- spread kale leaves on baking pan
- drizzle with olive oil
- sprinkle with salt
- bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes, until crispy
- marvel at deliciousness and try not to eat all the chips before you have even transferred them to a plate

(served with baked french fries and chicken wings/drumsticks with a red curry, green onion, garlic and sour cream dipping sauce)
