What the Kale?

Do you eat Kale?
Until today I never had Kale!
I almost had to ask the produce boy for help...I was clueless what Kale looked like other than being green.
In my attempt to eat healthier and add more greens to my diet....I was told about Baked Kale Chips from a fellow Boot Camper.
Baked Kale Chips that taste like Potato Chips but counts as veggie serving...
sign me up!


Omg...I'm in love! 
Tossed Kale with 1 tbs. olive oil seasoned with sea salt. Place on baking sheet with parchment paper baked at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Seriously good!!

There are two little creatures in my house who LOVE uncooked kale!
They are my rabbits! They have some every day.

I also love kale but not raw......

I must try the baked kale. I usually steam it or put it in stir fries!

I've never had Kale before either, but I'm not sure I'm into Kale chips. I'll just trust you that they're good and leave it at that! Ha!

That looks absolutely delicious!!! I will try it. Kale is also good in soups and it is super nutritious. You are on the right track! xoxo

My husband made some for me and I agree they are tasty.

I think Blogger must have lost my comment which is why I came back...... as all mine were lost too.

My rabbits love raw kale & I buy it for them every day.
I also like it..... but cooked and your recipe looks good. Never had it that way before!

Kale sure does seem to be in fashion this summer! I keep reading about it, so I asked my husband to plant some in his garden. We shall see...

I was dying to post on this the other night, but "blogger" wouldn't let me. I can't believe you tried this----so did I! We must have made them at the same time. I have never tried kale in my life either, but have always heard how good kale chips were. I LOVE THEM!!!! My daughter said she drizzles a little balsamic vinegar on them before baking. I've also heard sprinkle a little cumin on them too! My new favorite snack!

I'd try kale but I wouldn't make it myself.

I've heard it's very good that way. I've always had kale with collard greens which is great but this feeds the potato chip craving.

Matty said...

You have me on this one. Despite my somewhat healthy diet, I've never tried kale. Guess I need to give it a go.

I actually have never tried Kale - or maybe I have but didn't know it at the time. I'll need to try this! :)

Hm...Not sure I believe you, but I will pass this on to a friend who grows it in her garden and likes to share :)
