Today at CSA pick up we were told, “We have TONS of Kale – don’t be shy!”
Well you’re in luck! I am not shy.
So ummm, yeah. After I saw just how much kale I actually brought home, I then saw two options –
Option A: move through a serious amount of kale in short order or
Option B: figure out how I was going to get the fridge door shut.
I went with Option A and officially added kale to tonight’s dinner menu. One of the things that’s so awesome about kale is the same thing that’s awesome about spinach – it reduces down to practically nothing upon cooking.
I guess that means Kale Chips for dinner it is!
Oven preheated to 350 degrees, a bunch of kale trimmed and run through the rinse cycle. Drizzled with olive oil and then massaged by hand to ensure even coating.
Into the oven for 10 minutes, flipped and stirred and slipped back into the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Flipped and stirred a few more times toward the end to help them cook and crisp up evenly.
Reason #155 why I Love Kale.
It’s like kale WANTS you to be able to eat a ton of it without even noticing.
Alright Kale, if you insist…
Salty, crispy, awesome kale chips with a side of veggie burger. And a fridge door that closed all the way.
