Software

  • 6 to 8 ounces hearty greens, such as kale, chard, mustard, collards, or spinach

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 27 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

Procedure

  • Heat oven to 300ºF. Line 2 half sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry the greens. Tear the larger leaves into 1- to 2-inch strips.
  • Lay the greens in a single layer on the half sheet pans, spritz lightly with the olive oil, and sprinkle with the salt.
  • Bake until the greens are dry and have darkened slightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove immediately from the pan on the parchment and transfer to a serving dish. Repeat with any remaining greens. Serve immediately, or store in a brown paper bag for up to 3 days.
