Down Home Kale (roasted kale)

We were in the mood for a down home meal. This meant baked beans! We also have these awesome veggie burgers called Sunshine Burgers. There source of protein comes from sunflower seeds and brown rice so you don't get all that unnecessary processed soy. They are super tasty too. This whole meal was pretty dang good. And the green on the plate? Roasted kale.

Roasted Kale is one of the easiest and tastiest green preparations. Chop's mom, Natalie, introduced me to this a few months ago and since, I have passed it on to clients and enjoy it myself. It is simple simple simple and if you don't know how else to prepare your kale, this is a great introduction.

1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Wash, destem, and tear up kale into 2-3 inch pieces
3. Olive Oil a baking dish and put kale into it
4. Drizzle kale with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a dash of sea salt, pepper, garlic powder (if you'd like)
5. Put in oven bake for 10-15 minutes stirring once.

The edges get crispy and it has a great rich flavor.
