2-4 servings

1 head of kale
2 Tb olive oil
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp cayenne (optional if you like a little heat)

• Preheat oven to 400 degrees
• Wash kale dry thoroughly by spinning in a salad spinner or wrapping in a towel. Remove stems, cut or tear the leaves into medium pieces
• Place a little olive oil in a bowl, dip your fingers and rub a very light coat of olive oil over the kale. Really rub so the entire leaf gets coated
• Sprinkle with salt and cayenne.  Mix
• Place on a shallow baking sheet, no need to oil the pan
• Roast 4 minutes or until it starts to turn a tiny bit brown. Turn it over and roast with the other side up about 4 minutes more. Be careful it does not burn. They should be crispy.
• Serve immediately or put into a zip lock to take with you as a snack.
