There is a big stalk running down the middle of kale that isn’t very tasty. It’s edible, but it’s too tough to enjoy. Just strip the kale from the stalk! This dish is best served under a dippy fried egg. You may want to start with 1/16 tsp sea salt and work up to 1/8 tsp, if you’re up for it. There are four oil options below.The flavor of the oil definitely changes the flavor of the dish so you might like to rotate through them till you find your favorite. This breakfast is simple, but addictive like potato chips.
