I do not care for overly steamed anything. In my experience, it just always turns out weird and makes me feel weird. But to each his own.
My roommate Katie loves kale. She's turned me on to trying it and tonight we decided to have steaks on the salt block, green bean casserole, and attempted to make some Kale Chips. All the recipes we found looked relatively easy and quick, but here is how I prepared it:
1 large bunch of Kale (you may need two or three cookie sheets fyi)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Optional: garlic powder
Directions: Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Wash and dry the kale (make sure it's pretty dry after). Next, the kale and cut into 1-2 inch chops and break apart further if you feel so inclined. Spread the kale pieces over a cookie sheet (or two) so they are not overlapping too much. Toss in salt and olive oil so that it is covered evenly. Put in the oven. Cook for 10 minutes then take out and with tongs flip it over. Put back in the oven for another 10-12 minutes. Take out, let it cool. Enjoy.
