Enjoy winter veggies while they are still in season!
I found some beautiful bunches of kale at thes store for only 99 cents per bunch! (Another thing I found, is that my piggies absolutely love kale.)
I used to be pretty intimidated by kale because it is such a bitter and coarse vegetable.
I have made kale chips in the past, but it came out way too fibrous, and the mistake that I made, was that I did not remove the stem prior to baking the kale.
This time, I tried kale chips again, and I thought it came out quite delicious. It tastes crunchy and nutty.
The only problem was, that I salted it too much.
Wash your kale, and shake it as dry as you can (or use a salad spinner). Remove the leaves from the hard stem and break the leaves into smaller leafy pieces. Lay the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and salt.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
Enjoy as a snack or as a side/appetizer. =)
