If you haven’t hopped on the kale-chip bandwagon by now, this is your opportunity. Everyone’s favorite trendsetting leafy green takes on a surprisingly light and crispy texture when you bake it in the oven. It’s good enough to eat as a snack on its own, but even better when you pair it up with a mix of grains and veggies. In this version, briny olives, tangy tomatoes, and wholesome quinoa make for a bowl full of lively contrasts and textures that seem to reveal something new with each bite.

Wash and dry all produce. Meanwhile, remove and discard kale ribs and stems. Tear half the leaves into large bite-sized pieces.

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add chopped kale and cook, tossing, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add garlic, tomatoes, and pine nuts and cook, tossing, until tomatoes and pine nuts are warmed through, another 2-3 minutes.
