  1. Position the racks in the top and bottom thirds of the oven; preheat to 375°F.
  2. Cut out the thick, center stems from the kale leaves; tear the leaves themselves into ragged 3-inch pieces.
  3. Spray two large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Lay the leaf pieces on them in a single layer. Spray the leaves lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
