1 bunch of kale
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoned salt
Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Rinse kale, tearing into slightly larger than bite-sized pieces - they will shrink as they bake. Whirl dry in a salad spinner, or blot dry with paper towels. Transfer dried kale to mixing bowl. Combine olive oil, garlic powder, and seasoned salt in a small bowl. Pour over kale, combining well with a large spoon. Lay in a single layer on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake 15 min., until edges start to brown and kale is well-dried and crisp. Turn off oven, leaving kale to dry an additional 5 min.
