You can cook these at higher temperatures, but they go from being done to burnt in seconds instead of minutes…so it is much trickier.
Makes 2 very large, addictive servings@ 263 calories, 16.9 g fat, 23.5 g carbs, 3.2 g fiber, .4 g sugar, 6.3 g protein
- 1 head Lacinato (Dinosaur), or Curly Kale
- 2-4 tablespoons (rough) olive oil
- 1-3 tablespoon lemon juice (depending on how sour you like yours)
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- Optional flavor ideas: sesame seeds, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, maple syrup,sesame oil. The options are really limitless.I have used Annie's Asian Sesame Dressing even.
- Preheat oven to 285 degrees.
- Rinse and dry your kale leaves.
- Using your hands or a knife, remove the thick, coarse stems. I just tear the leaves off in chunks away from the thick rib. No exact size necessary, make them as perfect or not perfect as you like.
- In a bowl large enough to accommodate all the leaves, make your dressing by whisking all the ingredients together.
- Place the leaves in the bowl and using your hands, toss and rub the dressing throughout all the leaves making sure they are all thoroughly coated.
- Place in a SINGLE layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
- Bake for about 20 minutes. Check your leaves, they should be crisp and crunchy, if not, put back in the oven for a few minutes until they are. Just be careful, when they burn, they taste bitter! I have put 2 cookie sheets in at a time to speed the process up with success. This recipe usually fills about 2-3 cookie sheets, depending on your head size. Taste the first batch, and if you'd like to add a wee bit more salt before cooking the next batch, now is the time!
- Store in an airtight container. I recommend eating them within a day.
