What the Kale!

27 Oct

Okay. So maybe I’m the only one but i go through food phases. For a few days, weeks, (..ever), all I want is one type of food. When it’s cold I want oatmeal, when it’s warm I want yogurt, a couple of weeks ago I was alwaysss wanting black beans. Now? Kale chips.

Holy. Moly. Have you tried these? If you haven’t, I want you to stop what you’re doing right now and go buy some kale. It’s not expensive so you have no excuse. Seriously. Sacrifice reading my blog for this magical culinary creation.

Kale looks like this naturally.

Nice and green and leafy and superrrr good for you. I’m not exaggerating either, it’s a super food! It’s one of top sources of Vitamin A and can prevent cancer. Win-Win.

Well, I have seen the whole kale chips phenomenon on other blogging sites but have never taken the plunge…until I watched Kath’s video on how to create kale chips which can be seen here.

Life changing I am telling you! Although I mostly followed her instructions I’m going to let you know what to do on this post as well. 😉

Kale Chips

 (pretty much like Kath does)

What You’re Gonna Need:

  • Lots and lots of kale (i bought a prepackaged family size..hehe)
  • Cooking spray
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and Peppa

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pat kale with paper towels if they’re kind of wet. Layer on a baking sheet and you can kind of pile it on but you may need to move it around half wa through cooking. Spray with cooking spray pretty thoroughly and toss until every piece has some on it. Sprinkle with pepper and salt and then  parmesan cheese (use less salt if you use more parmesan)…and use a healthy dose of that magical cheese.

Put in oven for 10-15 minutes depending on your oven and when you touch it with a spatula and it’s crinkly (sounds like your rustling your hand in a potato chip bag) take it out!

It is ready to eat, yum!

This picture doesn’t even begin to describe how much I ate..or have eaten…every day. 😉 Super food = super excuse to eat as much as I want.

Oh, and you have to put ketchup on it. There is no exception..seriously, we can’t be friends if you don’t. Ah JK! But honest..it will make you shout, “WHAT the kale!”

Ok, I’m done.
