Kale Chip Quillsadapted from Bon Appetit Magazine
1 bunch kale leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 275°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Rinse and dry the kale leaves. To make them more quill-like, pluck off the smaller leaves on the bottom third of each leaf. Put the kale leaves in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss. Sprinkle with salt and toss again till evenly distributed. Place the leaves in a single layer on each baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until all the leaves are crisp and slightly browned, flipping them 2-3 times during the baking. Let cool on a wire rack, then serve.
