Roasted Kale

I know I’m late to the kale party but here I am! I’ve had kale many ways, steamed, massaged (yes, really), even gratin, but this is my favorite method and it just so happens to be super easy. There’s no real measurements here, everything is to taste.

Roasted Kale:

  • 1 Bunch kale: washed, stemmed, and torn in to pieces
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Red pepper flakes

Heat oven to 375. Toss everything together on a lined sheet pan:

After five minutes stir kale to redistribute on the pan, tong are super useful here. Give the kale another 5-8 minutes depending on how crisp you want it. I go for about five, the kale comes out tender with super crispy edges and a nice spicy bite.

This preparation is so good that I have sat down to a big plate of roasted kale for dinner with no regrets. What’s your favorite kale recipe?

  1. Kale! Yum! There’s no such thing as being late to the party because the kale party never stops!The roommie and I were buying 3-4 heads a week but we’ve slowed down. Time to raise the volume back up and keep on partying! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. I still haven’t ‘played’ with Kale as yet.. Is it good? What does it taste of?
