There's no denying that kale is a superfood. With vitamin A for skin, teeth, immune, and eye health; vitamin C to grow and repair all tissues and fight free radicals; and even a little bone-building calcium, it definitely belongs in your diet—even if it's just as a low-carb chip instead of in a raw salad.
1 bunch kale (about 10 ounces), stems removed, torn into chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place kale in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15 minutes. Stir and return to oven for about 15 more minutes until kale is crisped. Store in a zipper-sealed bag for up to 2 days.
