  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With a paper towel pat the kale dry. Remove stems and rip the leaves into roughly 1-inch pieces.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the Parmesan, garlic powder, paprika, and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside
  4. Toss the kale with olive oil and a good pinch of salt. Put onto a baking sheet and cook until beginning crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Take the kale out of the oven and toss with the Parmesan mixture.
  5. Return the kale to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, or just until the cheese has melted and the kale is crispy.

Chef Tips

Use Curly Kale or Russian Kale to make these chips. The leaves of Lacinato Kale are a little delicate. If you don’t like spicy, use sweet paprika instead of hot. You’ll get the taste without the fire.
