Ingredients
  

  • 1 bunch curly kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • With a knife or kitchen shears, carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite sized pieces. Rinse well and pat dry with a clean kitchen towel.
  • In a large bowl, toss kale with olive oil and seasoned salt.
  • Place on prepared pan in a single layer. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.

Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Select kale with crisp, undamaged leaves without yellowing or blemishes.
  • It is best to not wash kale before storage. Wrap leaves in a damp paper towel and place in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Kale tends to become bitter the longer it is stored, so be sure to use it within a few days.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • For crispy results, make sure the kale is completely dry before tossing with oil.
  • Flavor any way you like. Toss with a clove of crushed garlic, a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar or soy sauce.
  • Sprinkle with a little grated Parmesan cheese before serving.
  • Watch the leaves while baking, as they can brown quickly.
