Kale Chips Rock!

The girls have been enjoying our time at the local Farmers Markets and our weekly CSA. I will try to post some pictures of them perusing the local offerings soon, it is so cute. A reporter with our local paper has started a blog about what she receives with her CSA and how her family enjoys all of those items. It has encouraged me to start really using up everything we receive instead of eating what we know what to do with and tossing what goes bad. So far, the only thing I let go was a bunch of mint. And we have been eating a lot of greens. Recently we got a nice bunch of kale. I was torn between sauteeing it with garlic or making kale chips. I decided to do both. I picked up another bunch of kale at the Farmers Market and had my kale two ways. The girls helped with the chips. Our recipe comes from The Whole Family Cookbook by Michelle Stern. But she has it on her website if you want to test the recipe first. Then you can go buy the book. We get a few pennies if you click our link so buy from us!
Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:

  1. Tear the kale to pieces
  2. Spray with olive oil
  3. Sprinkle with kosher salt
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Assist the girls
  2. Wash salt out of Maurene's wound
  3. Bake kale
These were really good. We made them with curly kale but you could try them with any kind. Really, they do taste good. Try it!

  1. Amanda has that happen all the time with getting salt or lemon or orange juice in her owies. The worst is when she has a crack on her lip. Much misery!

    I've been meaning to try these kale chips. Maybe I'll remember to grab some at the store. We also puree kale or spinach into smoothies. Mixing it with acidic fruit allows you to get more iron out of it and reduces it's strong taste. Once I chopped up mint and combines it in a rasberry and apple salad. Yummy! I wish we had a CSA nearby us too.


Audrey wants to hear from you!
