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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.
