    You guys were right on the Money with this one !  What a wonderful surprise~  I never doubted it  but I certaily was Not prepared for the outstanding results   that I got !~

    The leaves feel like tissue paper and they are crispy like a potato chip ~  The leaves all curl up and some of the edges will brown up as well. 

     You need to season them real well before baking and stir them up a few times during  that baking time~  I am so glad you gals discovered this one ~  Jill, I remember you saying how you and Mr went through a whole bag ~   I can really see why ~ 

    The thing that most amazed me is the texture.  They almost dissolve,  My first bite I thought , now this is different and by the fourth one I has hooked.  The flavor completely transformes inteelf into a marvelouls little treat ~ Like I said season really well in the beginning for best results!

    I used Collard Greens~  and I seasoned them with some sea salt, black pepper and minced garlic ~ about 2 cloves. Toss with a good portion of olive oil. You want each and evey leaf coated.  I also removed the hard rib that runs down the middle of the leaves. And then I sliced  them~ Into bite sized pieces.  You will be shocked at the shrinkage.

    The sided sheet pan was  completely ful. And when they were  done I had  mere bowlful.  I also lined the sheet pan with foil. It doesn't take long so keep an eye out or leave the light on so you can check on them frequently.

     

    Now that I have sampled and sealed the deal with this recipe I am going to branch out and will play around with other spices  to use ~  I bet lemon infused olive oil would also be wonderful. And what a fabulous topping for Mac and cheese or a nice chickpea salad !~  As Tony would raor ~  It's  Great "!!  Janie

     

     

    Crispy Baked Greens ~ 

    One can use Kale, collard or mustard greens.  I am not sure about spinach as the leaves are not as tough as the other choices. 

    One bag of your choice. ( cleaned and chopped.  Not too small as they will shrink)

     

    Olive oil

     

    salt and pepepr

     

    Minced garlic if desired.

     

    Olive oil

     

     

    Toss all in a large bowl.  Spread out on a foil or parchament lined sheet pan.  Oven set at 350.  Bake for about 12-20 minutes ( i'd check after 12 minutes)

    Linda,  My Isaland friend gave it to me from her garden.  The leaves were huge ~ Larger  then cabbage. 

    If I had to guess ~ Folded they were as long as a Bunch of romaine lettuce and width wise perhgaps  9" ~ This is pure speculation ~ Janie

    Cool beans Ms. Janie. If you have any of the nutritional yeast left, try sprinkling that on them after they come out of the oven. I love that on them!! I've made this about 10 times since...lol, and am almost burned out on them, but in a few weeks I'll probably be right back there. I found a place that has kale for $1.00, so couldn't help myself for a while.

    So glad they worked out for you! Thank-you for the great review, and to Chefly for her recipe.

    This is what clinched it for me...such an easy treat! I used kale, and it does have a rather cruciferous aroma when cooking...

    Now I forget how Chef made hers ~  Probably was the same.  Janie
