Kale Chips

I know kale chips sound so very pious but I’ve eaten them, and they are tasty! Remove the center rib of the kale leaves.  Cut into pieces and place in bowl. Make sure the leaves are completely dry.  Add about a tablespoon of sesame or olive oil, 1-2 teaspoons of soy sauce, and a tablespoon of sesame seed.  Mix lightly until the leaves are coated. Lay the kale leaves flat, in one layer, on a baking sheet (parchment paper is optional). In the meantime, the over should be preheated to 350 degrees.  Bake the kale for about 7 minutes until they are crispy. Watch them carefully because the transition to “burned kale” can happen fast and that’s not what you want.

Yes, you can add crushed red pepper or hot sauce to the coating mixture.
