"Community" TV show recipe: green kale for Greendale
These make a nice, healthy snack you can enjoy at any time, perhaps while on your couch watching Community. It is, in fact, so easy to make that you don’t even really need a recipe. Just follow the instructions and make sure they don’t burn. One variation I like is to add a little cayenne, so feel free to play around with it.
1 bunch green kale, washed and dried
Oil (canola, olive, or grape seed are good)
Salt and pepper
1 – Preheat your oven to 325F. Remove the tough central stem from the kale and cut or tear the leaves into roughly one-inch pieces.
2 – Put the kale into a bowl and drizzle with a little oil and toss to very lightly coat each piece. Add a dash of salt and pepper (if desired) and toss to evenly distribute.
3 – Spread the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until they are crispy but not browned. This may take several batches. Each batch takes about 15 minutes, give or take, depending on your oven.
4 – When they are done, transfer them into a bowl and repeat with the next batch. You can re-use the same parchment each time.
