Roasted'll love it!

Do you have a list of healthy foods that you would like to include in your diet,but if you are honest you: a) don't really like them, and, b) don't know what to do with them? A couple of years ago, I would have said that kale was on my list. We get it often from our local CSA and while I used to agonize over how I could sneak it onto our plates, I now know exactly what I will do with it and am actually disappointed when it isn't in our weekly basket.

Here is the answer to all your kale woes! Everyone in our family gobbles this up almost before it reaches the table.

Roasted Kale
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Take any amount of kale. (Make sure you have enough -- this is yummy!)
Wash and dry, remove stems and rip into bite-sized pieces.
Put into a bowl, adding a few splashes of extra-virgin olive oil and a dash or two of fine sea salt. Toss it with your hands to coat well (it should be like a salad dressing, not dripping with the stuff, but well-coated).
Transfer to a cookie sheet, spreading out well so that it isn't all bunched up.
Bake about 10 minutes or until it is getting crispy edges.
Mmmmmmm...see if this isn't the best kale you've ever had.

Now, make sure to pick some up at the local farmer's market and make it again!

I'd love to hear how your family liked it. :)

    I've seen a recipe for roasted kale before and have never dared to try it. Now I will. Thanks for the endorsement.
