Today I tried it with kale. (And radicchio, as you can see above, but the radicchio did not fare so well, so please disregard it - consider it a mere addition for Christmas colors.) The kale was crunchy and yet chewy - sweet and yet savory - delicious and yet...just delicious.
This is a side dish that will go with just about any main course. Try it out and see for yourself.
1 bunch of kale, tough stems removed, leaves coarsely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Spread out kale on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss everything together.
3. Bake for about 10 minutes, tossing everything around about halfway through, until kale is starting to brown at the edges and get crispy. Serve.
