One cup of kale provides just 33 calories, over 100% daily value of Vitamin C and over 200% for Vitamin A. It also is a good source of fiber, iron, folate, and thiamine and is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin B6, calcium and potassium. How can you say no to that? Take my word for it, you can't.
This recipe is ready in 7 minutes and is a great slightly-salty snack. So now that I've convinced you that kale may just be the most perfect food, go get cooking!
Serves probably just you because these are hard to share
1 small bunch of kale
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash and dry kale and remove the leaves from the tough stalk. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Rip kale into smaller pieces, about the size of a chip and lay in a single layer on the baking sheet. (Don't be afraid to crowd the pan, the pieces will shrink some and you will definitely be wishing you and made more once you're done). Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on the leaves and sprinkle a small amount of sea salt over the top. Place in oven for about 5 minutes, flip leaves and finish baking for another 2 minutes. Enjoy!
