This is a great recipe that satisfies my yearning for potato chips!

Roasted Kale "Chips"

Serves 2


6 oz. raw kale, torn into bite size pieces and stems removed
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. dried marjoram
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. sea salt


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Wash kale pieces and dry well - a salad spinner works well for this.

3. In a very large bowl, combine olive oil, spices and salt, and mix well.  I use my hands.

4. Add the kale to the oil mixture and mix well until the kale is evenly coated.

5. Spread the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet.

6. Place the kale in the oven, and roast for 6 minutes.

7. Using your bare fingers, press down lightly on the kale, and if it feels limp, roast for another minute or so, until the kale feels slightly crispy and paper-like.  Be very careful not to roast too long, because once it's done, it will start to turn brown and burn very quickly!
