Crispy Baked Fresh Kale

I adapted this recipe from Chef Guy Fieri.
He calls this Kale chips and the greens do
dry in the heat of the oven and get crispy.
I add some garlic which gets nice and roasty
adding great flavor as the kale gets toasty.
Adding lemon zest takes this over the top.

Fresh kale, washed and stemmed,
torn into bite-size pieces
Fresh garlic cloves, unpeeled
Extra-virgin olive oil
Flaky sea salt
1 fresh lemon, and zest
Crushed red pepper flakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the kale in a large bowl and dress very lightly
with olive oil so the leaves are barely coated.
Top with the zest of one lemon. Season with salt.
Spread the leaves out across a baking sheet and roast
in oven until crispy but still green, 12 to 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and dress with a squeeze of fresh
lemon juice and a touch of crushed red pepper flakes.
