Kale is a nutritional powerhouse loaded with vitamins K, A and C. Cayenne pepper is a widely used spice that has antioxidant properties along with a high vitamin C content. Together this snack packs loads of flavor and nutrition!


  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bunch kale, large stems removed, cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces


Preheat the oven to 300ºF.

In a bowl, combine the spices and oil. Stir to dissolve.

Add the kale and toss to coat. 

Spread leaves in a single layer on two baking sheets (you may need to do in batches).

Bake until the tips of leaves are slightly crispy, about 10 minutes.

Use a spatula to turn the leaves over, and continue to roast until the leaves are crisp and slightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes more.
