  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Form a sheet of aluminum foil into the shape of a baking sheet; spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix kale, red onion, carrots, jalapeno peppers, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Spread kale mixture onto the prepared aluminum foil.
  3. Place the aluminum foil 'baking sheet' onto the preheated grill; cook, tossing kale using tongs, until kale reduces in size and desired texture is reached, 6 to 8 minutes.

This is the first time we've had cooked kale. We were surprised at how much "cooking" transforms this power veg! This is a great dish! Simple and flavorful...what more could you ask for! This will definitely be a repeat in our house!

love the recipe--but DO NOT cook in aluminum. Use a cast iron skillet on the grate--or something else. Aluminum toxicity leads to Alzheimer's. I have somehow gotten aluminum toxicity and it's nasty--hard to get out of the body. Very expensive also. You don't want it. Food picks up the aluminum when it come in contact with it.

Be sure to toss in the oil, not just drizzle on

I "baked" it until VERY crispy - very tasty!

I did not care for this recipe.

I dislike kale, but am always looking for ways to fix it that will be tasty. I did have to roast it instead of grilling but it came out very well. This was very good -- my husband, son, and I all like it, and I'll make it again.
