1 bag baby kale or 1 bunch adult kale
olive oil
salt and pepper
cheddar or parmesan (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 425F
  2. If using adult kale, strip from the stems and tear into large pieces
  3. Toss kale with a glug of olive oil to coat
  4. Lay onto a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer (overlapping the leaves will cause leaves to steam rather than crisp)
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in oven
  6. Bake until dark green and crispy (about 6 minutes) some browning may occur
  7. Remove from the oven and top with a grating of cheese if using allowing it to melt gently over the leaves
  8. Allow to cool and then snack!
