What's in it


4 stalks kale
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked black pepper
Pinch of crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon Olive oil

How to cook it


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry the kale leaves (water on the leaves will prevent crunchiness).
  • Easily separate the leaves from the ribs by running your hand down the rib, discard ribs.
  • Tear the leaves into potato chip sized pieces. Pile kale on a baking pan and sprinkle with the olive oil, salt, cracked black pepper and crushed red pepper.
  • Toss kale with your hands until all the leaves are coated.
  • Spread out the kale as much as possible so that the leaves are not covering each other too much.
  • Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes (keep an eye on ‘em!) or until leaves are crispy and starting to brown slightly.
