Okay, so you think you don't like kale. Not only is it a highly nutritious food that I include in smoothies and soup recipes, but if I blindfolded you and gave you kale chips to eat, you would swear you were eating seasoned potato chips.
There are dozens of kale chip recipes out there. I like this one.
4 or 5 handfuls of fresh kale
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Rinse the kale leaves under water and then dry very well, using paper towels.
Tear them into bite size pieces, eliminating the stems.
In a large bowl, combine the salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Using your hands, carefully mix the kale into the salt mixture.
Place on a cookie sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake in a 350 degree oven. Check at the 9 to 10 minute point. They should be crunchy and still green. In my oven, 9 minutes was adequate. If baked too long, they turn brown and develop a bitter taste.
Remove from oven and cool slightly before eating.
These are not good the second day, so only make enough for one time.
