Today I’m excited to be introducing a new weekly feature on my blog – 52 Weeks of Kale. Basically I am going to share a new recipe using kale every week for a whole year.
I’m looking forward to trying a whole lot of new recipes and incorporating more kale into my diet. It will also be a bit of a challenge because kale is still not very common in Brisbane. I’m hoping to be able to get it at the markets, and will also stock up on it in the freezer when I can get it. Luckily it’s in season at the moment as we come out of winter.
The first recipe I’m going to share with you is kale chips, which also happens to be the first recipe I ever made with kale. Kale chips are a great way to eat kale if you don’t particularly like the taste of greens. They are crispy and crunchy and much better for you than normal potato chips.
Ingredients (serves 2-4, depending how hungry you are!)
Half a bunch of kale (curly or dinosaur)
1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1 tsp of curry powder. You can also use other seasonings like chilli flakes, paprika, lemon rind or just plain salt.
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 170C (340F).
Tear the leaves of the kale into chip-sized pieces and remove the stems. Toss with oil and seasoning.
Lay chips in a single layer on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, tossing them mid-way through.
Sprinkle with salt and enjoy
Do you have any super-delicious kale recipes? Share them in the comments, I need some inspiration.
