Author Notes

This is my favorite way to eat kale, and thankfully, it's effortless. Just toss the kale with olive oil, salt, pepper, and roast. In a handful of minutes, it's done. Half just dissolves on your tongue, and the other half has that leafy bit to it. Perfect! —KerryFrenchRev

What You'll Need
  • 7 ounces chopped curly kale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Maldon sea salt
  • 6 twists freshly ground black pepper on the pepper mill
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, with the rack in the center of the oven. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the kale, olive oil, salt, and pepper together and spread out on the baking sheet. Roast for 7 minutes total, tossing once in the middle of cooking. Some of the kale should be charred brown, and some should be bright emerald green. Serve immediately with almost anything--I even make sandwiches with it.
