kale--i hardly knew thee

listen to me
i am a sucker for anything crunchy
so when i saw an episode
of top chef masters
and one of them
made crispy kale
i thought to myself
i might like that
and boy did i
especially after i drizzled it with truffle oil
and sprinkled it with a bit of sea salt
here's a secret
i took it to the movies
and crunched away with the best of em'
listen to me
you have to try this
Crunchy Kale
(printable recipe)
1 bunch kale--washed and dried
olive oil
sea salt
truffle oil
remove the stems of the kale and cut the leaves into nice size pieces (like potato chips). place on a lightly oiled  sheet pan.  drizzle just a bit of oil on top...just a little bit. sprinkle with sea salt.  place in a 250 oven and bake for about 40 minutes. check periodically to see how it is crisping up.  once crisped, remove from oven and  drizzle with truffle oil.  alternatively, you can replace the sea salt with truffle salt.  who am i kidding---this is good even if you don't have truffle oil.

    Best wishes for a Happy Sunday,
