Bite Me Bit

“The English contribution to world cuisine - the chip."

-John Cleese


1 bunch of fresh kale
Olive oil


1) Preheat oven to 300ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2) Remove any large stems by stripping the leaves from the stalk using your hands. Tear your kale into rough, 3-inch pieces.Wash and carefully dry kale leaves thoroughly because wet leaves will steam in the oven versus bake and crisp. Place kale on baking sheets in single layer.

3) Drizzle leaves with olive oil. Using you hands, gently toss the kale and lightly rub the oil into each piece. If you need a little more oil, add it now. Redistribute the kale back to a single layer. Sprinkle on salt and any additional flavorings.

4) Place trays in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes, then rotate trays as the thin pieces of kale will quickly brown in your oven's hot spots. Check again after 3 minutes. You will hear the kale sizzling from the oil. Carefully pick up or nudge a chip. You want them to be crisp but not browned. Remove from oven and let cool on the tray.
