Kale chips. Everyone, even people who hate green things, should try them once. I happen to love green things so when I first heard of these there was no question I would love them, but I was still surprised when I took my first bite into these cripsy, salty, surpirsingly chip-like treats! If you’ve never had a kale chip, try a batch plain first and then go for the fancy version :)
For the Kale Chips:
1 bunch curly kale
1 tbsp. melted organic butter or olive oil
a bit of salt, depending on how salty you like your chips
Preheat oven to 350. Remove the kale from the stems, leaving them in fairly large pieces. Throw the pieces in a large bowl and massage them with the butter/oil and salt until they are covered. Place them in a single layer on baking trays and bake 10-15 minutes, you want them crispy but not burnt.
…Post IKTE (Initial Kale Tasting Experience. Again, everyone should have one):
Pile Kale chips on a plate and top with guacamole and salsa. For a cheesy version try shredded goat cheese, broiled until melted, and topped with cool salsa. If you can get Emerald Valley Organic Salsa, its possibly the best I’ve ever had in my life.
