roasted kale

kale...kale is one of those superfoods that we all could stand to add a lot of to our diets. packed with vitamins A, C, calcium and folate (folic acid is essential to growing a healthy baby in a mama's tummy). its especially wonderful for vegans since it is loaded with calcium.
there are a ton of things you can do with this tough green. soups, sautes, fillings, juicing with fruit so your peewee has no clue but above all is roasting. it has a very similar flavor to roasted brussel sprouts which are equally as delicious roasted. a little good olive oil, slivers of fresh garlic, cracked pepper and sea salt...crunchu and salty heaven.


1 bunch of kale, outer leaves removed, don't eat that tough stem
olive oil
1 or 2 or 3 garlic cloves, slivered
sea salt
cracked black pepper

preheat oven to 350F. tear of kale and toss with oil, salt, pepper and garlic. roast for 10 min or until crispy and dry.

Kale also happens to be an incredibly easy plant to grow, it can weather the cold quite well also, so as a West Coast Canadian I can grow Kale all winter long. Thank you for the reciprocal link btw, I really appreciate it since I enjoy your blog so much, thank you :)

I tried this with collard greens. They came out awesome. I overdid it a little with the salt though so some of the crunchier ones tasted like thin potato chips. I should market them. Collard Chips. Tasty and healthy.
