Roast for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. When you think they are done, give it another 6-8 minutes so it gets nice and crispy!
Quick Sauteed Kale 1 bunch kale 2 T coconut oil Take kale off stem, slice thinly and wash in colander. Once it has been drained and dried. Warm up large cast iron on medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add coconut oil, once melted add the kale in batches. ****It will cook down quickly, but will also do some spattering**** do not have kids or dogs around your feet when you do this. Once the kale is all cooked down, do not over cook it in pan, you want it to have some of its crunch still. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
