I know, I know, everyone loves kale these days. Well, throw another super fan on the pile. But here’s my little kale secret: the pre-washed, organic bag of Tuscan Kale at Trader Joe’s. I hate washing and breaking up kale, I actually don’t mind eating the ribs, so Lynne + TJ’s Kale = BFF.
My favorite way to serve is so simple, from one of my biggest food inspirations, Ina Garten. Her latest masterpiece, Barfoot Contessa Foolproof, has a recipe for Crispy Roasted Kale I adapted and make about once a week. When I’m cleaning up, I literally can’t stop myself from taking just a few more crispy delights from the pan.
- 1 bag TJ’s Organic Tuscan Kale (10 oz)
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread bag of kale on a rimmed baking sheet. Coat and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and roast for 12 – 16 minutes (depending on how crispy you like it), tossing once along the way.
