Beener’s Greens

My friend Beener made a resolution last year to eat less fast food.  She isn’t the type of person who forgets resolutions come February.  She has stuck with it and even though it is super hard with their day to day kid shuffle, she has cut down the amount of fast food.  She inspired my kale chip making this morning.  Part of her good food effort landed her at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday.  It is hard not to over buy beautiful veggies….there is a lot of kale at the market right now…..

I have seen lots of recipes for kale chips, all promising to be as fantastic as potato chips. Of course, that is an oversell. But they are good and I think I may even be able to get Lachy and Loudey to like them.  It also helps that I have a friend who is growing a serious amount of kale in his back yard.  He needs to unload his bounty and I love homegrown gifts.

Trim the kale leaves and remove any big stems and veins.  Lightly coat with olive oil and spread, in one layer on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Cook in a preheated oven at 350 for 10-15 minutes.  Taste for doneness-they should be crisp.
