kale crisps

Author Notes

Kale is such a super versatile veggie. You can stir fry, eat it raw or bake to create kale chips--which is my sure-fire way to get my son to eat kale. It's so simple that not only will my son eat it, he can make it himself too. Sometimes I top pizzas with this for an added crunch and greens. —edamame2003

Review
I work in the entertainment business, and in my free time, I really enjoy growing my own vegetables, trolling my local farmers markets and trying to re-create yummy dishes I eat at my favorite restaurants. My son is a big influence on how and what I cook. He's my guinea pig and promises to try anything I make once. Luckily the recipes on food52 are bountiful and delicious.
