Servings 2


  • 8 oz. (About 1/2 of a 1 lb. bag) Kale Cut, washed, and dried
  • 2-3 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 3 TBS Parmesan Chese (Reserve 1 TBS)
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt


  1.      Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with foil, parchment, or a silicone baking sheet.

    2. Spread the kale onto the baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Next, sprinkle the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and 2 TBS of Parmesan Cheese over the kale.

    3. Mix and lightly "massage" the kale to coat it evenly with the oil and seasonings.

    4. Before putting it in the oven, sprinkle the remaining TBS of Parmesan Cheese over the top of the kale and bake for 11-13 minutes. Check the crispiness after 11 minutes and cook for a minute or two longer if needed.
