Our garden has officially hit the productive stage! We were off to a little bit of a slow start due to a few issues we ran in to, (more about that in my upcoming garden planning post.) However, it seems that we have “recovered” from that stage and we are now starting to see some good production from our plants! It is so exciting to come in from the garden with a bowl full of fresh vegetables to put on your table for dinner that evening! It is always such a good feeling to know that I grew that food myself and am now enjoying the rewards of my hard work!
I currently have an over-abundance of kale. So, of course, I’m having lots of fresh salads. But I also wanted to try something new to mix it up a little bit because I know that this is only the beginning of lots and lots of kale for the rest of the summer! I’ve been wanting to try kale chips but hadn’t yet. I whipped up this extremely simple recipe and fell in love with them! This will definitely be a regular snack around our house! My husband and I ate them all the second they came out of the oven-they were absolutely delicious!
*Preheat the oven to 275
2 cups Kale Leaves-Wash and Remove stems
1/2 tsp olive oil
Toss the kale leaves with the olive oil.
Then lay them out flat on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until they are crispy.
Variations: Sprinkle the chips with your favorite seasoning: garlic salt, barbecue powder, ranch powder, or whatever else sounds good to you!
