The secret to getting these crisp is to avoid crowding the leaves on the baking sheets. Also, keep an eye on them—they can scorch quickly.

Photo: Annabelle Breakey
 7 to 8 oz.* (1 small bunch) Lacinato kale (often sold as "dinosaur kale" or "Tuscan kale")
 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
 1 tablespoon soy sauce
 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Step 1

Preheat oven to 300°. Rinse kale and thoroughly blot dry with a kitchen towel. Tear leaves from ribs; discard ribs. Tear leaves into 4-in. pieces. Pour oil and soy sauce into a large bowl, add kale, and toss to coat evenly.

Step 2

Arrange leaves in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Bake, switching pan positions after 13 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake until leaves are crisp but not browned, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Step 3

*You can use larger bunches, but you'll need more oil and seasonings and maybe a third pan.
