Just had to rave about this amazingly simple and delicious snack. Today my 4-y-o ate about 4 whole leaves of kale this way! She loved it.

You wash the kale and pull it off of the tough center spine, breaking it into pieces 2-3 inches long. Toss in olive oil and a little salt. Lay on cookie sheet, roast at 375 for 5 minutes, turn leaves, put back in for 3 minutes more. Done.

We call it dinosaur or dragon skin, especially if you use the dino kale!

My kids love kale too! That's funny, I just saw a recipe in this month's Vegetarian Times for roasted kale, I never thought of roasting it before.

My kids love this, too. I add a splash of apple cider vinegar with the oil, which makes it extra tasty!
