Kale chips

Friday was a good day! Kale chips turned out so good that I managed to polish off a whole bunch.
Serves 2 or 1?

1 large bunch of Kale
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp vinegar (I used white wine vinegar)
Sea salt to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg.
  2. Trim the stems off. I kept the leaves more or less whole. Wash and dry. You can use a salad spinner. I resorted to paper napkins and kitchen towel. The idea is to dry them well.
  3. In a large bowl add olive oil to the leaves. Massage it in thorougly. Then add vinegar and do the same.
  4. Line baking trays with aluminum foil and spread the leaves on it in a single layer. I used 2 trays for 1 bunch.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove, add salt and let cool for a minute. Snack away!

Note: Once you put the Kale in the oven, check in about 5-6 mins to see if the leaves are searing. If they are, then they need to be in the oven only for another 30 seconds or so otherwise they will get burnt.
