Total time: 23 mins


  • 1 head flat-leaf (Tuscan or Lacinato) kale leaves separated, rinsed and thoroughly dried
  • (I’ve used curly Kale varieties and it’s just as good!)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Cut away the thick center stems from the leaves, leaving long strips. Cut the strips in half.
  3. Put leaves in a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss well to coat all leaves.
  4. Arrange the leaves dark side up in a single layer on baking sheets.
  5. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake about 15-18 minutes, until the leaves are crisp and the cheese is lightly golden.
  7. Serve warm or let cool.
