One bunch kale

One tbsp. olive oil or olive oil spray

Sea salt to taste

To cook:

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F

Wash kale well. Strip the leaves away from the stems (discard the stems) and cut or rip them into pieces. In a mixing bowl, toss with the olive oil (or spray ) to coat the leaves.

Spread the prepared leaves across a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cider vinegar.

Roast 7-10 minutes, then stir to help the leaves brown more evenly. Continue roasting until the kale is crispy (like potato chips) and very lightly browned.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve hot.
