Homemade Kale Chips
One of my favorite ways to prepare kale is making chips. Chips are super kid and husband friendly. What American doesn’t get excited when they hear the word “chip”? Crunchy, salty, melt-in-your-mouth. Yup, I am still talking about kale.

Preheat oven to 400° and place the baking stone in the oven. Allow the baking stone to heat up while the oven is preheating.
Prepare your kale. Wash and thoroughly dry each kale leaf. You don't want water remaining on the kale as that will lead to soggy kale chips and a compost bin trip.
De-stem each leaf. Hold the base of the stem and run your hand along the stem, pulling, to separate.
Once the leaf is separated from the stem, with your hands tear apart the kale leaves into smaller pieces. Place kale pieces in a large bowl.
Massage the kale leaves with lemon juice, salt, and olive oil.
Take the hot baking stone out of the oven.
Place your massaged kale on the baking stone. You want a single layer of kale, each piece should touch the baking stone. No mountains of kale here.
The kale will sizzle as it touches the baking stone. This is a good sign your baking stone is the perfect temperature.
After 7-10 minutes your kale is done.
Remove from the baking stone and proudly eat those leafy greens!
