How to love Kale morePosted: May 26, 2011
I’m assuming most people have no idea what kale is. Every time I speak of it I get a slew of questions about what it is, what it tastes like and how to prepare it.
In short, Kale is part of the Brassica family (also included in this family are such notables as brussel sprouts and collards. It’s a low glycemic food and packs healthy like broccoli grants miricles.
It’s a bit tough for a leafy green, which is why someone suggested to me that it needs a longer cooking time than your normal vegetable might need. I personally stirfry it, BUT I’ve been making kale chips lately to spice things up a bit.
- A bunch of kale (washed and dried)
- Enough Olive oil to lightly coat kale
- Your choice of “chip” seasoning
- Wash kale
- Remove stems
- Cut/rip into your preferred size of chip
- Coat in olive oil and salt
- Bake at a very low heat ~200F until crispy
- Season with your chip flavour if you wish
YUM!! So good! You can also buy kale chips if you don’t want to make them!
