This past week we got some different vegetables in our CSA (yay!). New this week were red potatoes, cucumbers and corn. We also got kale and spring onions. My roommate cooked up the corn, potatoes and onions and I was left with the kale and a cucumber. I cut up the cucumber and sprinkled a little salt on it and took it as a snack to work—which was delicious! Then, with the kale I decided to try making kale chips. I made kale chips a couple years ago and didn’t like them…turns out I just overcooked them. The kale chips I made this time were delicious and simple. It goes to show that trying foods more than once is a good thing. Give foods you didn’t like the first time a second chance—you might be surprised!
- kale (stems removed and ripped into bite sized pieces)
- olive oil
- s+ p
Place the kale on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Add salt and pepper and mix around a little bit with your hands to coat. Then, bake at 4oo degrees for about 20 minutes or until crispy.
I’ve heard people also top their kale chips with lemon juice or Old Bay. Have you tried kale chips before? Do you have a favorite recipe or topping?
