A Healthy Snack
Have you tried Kale ?
Move over Popeye and make room for the "queen of greens," kale. Gaining in popularity, kale is an amazing vegetable being recognized for its exceptional nutrient richness, health benefits, and delicious flavor.
Eating a variety of natural, unprocessed vegetables can do wonders for your health, but choosing super-nutritious kale on a regular basis may provide significant health benefits, including cancer protection and lowered cholesterol. ~ Web MD
So recently April introduced me to Kale! and recently Ive had it on sandwiches, salads, soups and as a snack!
So your wondering , OK a snack ? How .... just raw ? No, Baked! When you bake the leaves it makes kale chips. Its a crispy snack that's tasty and healthy and great if your watching your diet.
Here's a quick recipe ....
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner.
- Drizzle kale with a little olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt and/or pepper.
- Bake kale until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
