2 tablespoons olive oil

2 drops Lemon essential oil

Salt & Pepper

Directions:

3. Combine olive oil and Lemon essential oil in a large mixing bowl.

4. Put kale in a large mixing bowl and toss in oils.

5. Make sure all of the kale is well coated with oils by massaging each piece. Once coated, place on a baking sheet in a single layer.

6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

7. Bake on the center rack for 45-50 minutes (or until nice and crispy). Keep an eye on the smaller pieces and take them out if they are done earlier, otherwise they will burn.

8. Place in a bowl and watch them disappear!
