If you're like me, you're obssessed with Kale.


When I get a bunch of kale, I usually cut it into thin thin strips and then let it marinated in olive oil, a little salt, and lemon juice, so I can eat it in a salad. But sometimes I don't want to wait!

I found out you can roast kale in the oven in about 10 minutes (minus the heating time).

Chop up the washed kale into 1-2 inch pieces, rub them with olive oil and place on a cookie sheet. Then sprinkle sea salt over it and roast at 375 for about 10-12 minutes (until it's crisp like nori).

These just crunch in your mouth like little chips. A good way to trick your kids into eating greens! (if you don't eat them all yourself, like I did.)
Just for the record, cauliflower (a vegetable I used to hate) is also delicious this way. Thinly sliced, rubbed with olive oil and salt, set in a pan and roasted for about 20 minutes, until it turns golden brown on the edges and carmelizes. And it looks pretty.



looks really yummy...I might have to order that sometime!! thanks for the post.


Mariko, you are my hero. Everytime I see you, you are making /eating something amazing! This looks sooo good. I love Nori, but never tried Kale, and I think the roasting looks delish.
