This is a simple, nutritious, and delicious snack.  I could devour the entire pan and not feel guilty about it.  I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked this recipe, and since my first attempt, have seasoned with garlic salt, with crushed red pepper, and other such ingredients.  Get creative.  You can’t go wrong with a snack that is so good for you.  Trust me, you won’t be able to eat just one!

  1. I love roasted kale! This is also a great way to use broccoli — essentially, blast the sh-t out of it in a hot oven with olive oil, salt, and spices. Nice post.
