DIY Spicy Kale Chips- CSA Sensational!

Nov 14, 2013

It’s CSA Thursday, so here’s your recipe of the week.

Spicy Kale Chips Recipe

Spicy kale chips
*1/2-1 bunch of clean and dry organic kale, chopped into bite-sized pieces (remove any tough stems)
*1-2 Tb. olive oil
*1-2 large pinches of spicy seasoned course salt- see above
*juice from 1/2 lime (or to taste)- optional
directions: If you want to sign up for the CSA click here:
1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.
2. Drizzle some oil over the kale and “massage” it into the leaves. The kale I used for this post was an unusually large bunch. I’d say I used half the bunch and 1-2 tablespoons of oil.
3. I’d like to point out here that you should go ahead and taste the raw oiled kale. It is actually pretty yummy just like this (at least I think so). Sometimes I make a salad with raw kale that’s been oiled and allowed to sit for a few hours. But I’ll save that for another post.
4. Next, you’ll want to spread your oiled kale onto a sheet pan…And then bake in your preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Bake until the edges are just crispy, but the kale is still quite bright green. Do not overcook!

5. As soon as you take your kale chips out of the oven, sprinkle with a few pinches of the spicy salt and then squeeze on the optional lime. Enjoy your kale crispies…and remember to share with your children!

What’s today? It’s “Take Your Kids to Acupuncture Day”! (As are all school holidays)

Children Health

Children can benefit greatly from the natural, gentle, effects of Acupuncture and Herbs.

We often take ourselves for Holistic Healthcare, but forget that our kids can benefit, too.

The majority of childhood health concerns come down to immune issues, digestive complaints and emotional instability.

Instead of giving your kids Prilosec, Zyrtec, or Ritalin, why not try something a little gentler first?

We have some great and effective treatments for earaches, colds, food allergies, sleep issues, reflux, nervousness, and hyperactivity, that won’t cause more side effects than they cure!

Would you like more specific information for your child?
