Kale is a dark, leafy green that is packed with nutrients. Despite its health benefits, most people never really eat it. Many who do, however, agree that it makes for a great – even addicting – side dish and all around snack.

You can prepare kale with just about every imaginable combination of spices.  Adding vinegar for some extra tang is a popular option. For your snacking pleasure, we’re bringing you the simplest and most classic solution: olive oil and a bit of garlic and salt. Feel free to add in other spices as you like. Just make sure you have a lot of kale on hand, because you will fall in love with this recipe. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

Recipe:

6 cups kale, stems removed, chopped into 2 in. pieces
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tbsp Kosher salt
½ tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Sriracha

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place kale in a large mixing bowl; drizzle with olive oil. Using hands, mix well to evenly coat leaves with oil.

Divide kale between two baking sheets and spread leaves in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt, garlic powder & Sriracha.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until leaves are super crispy and completely dry. Store in sealed container.

Makes 4 servings.
