I don't know what possessed me to cook another new vegan recipe after what happened with the bean brownies (which I now affectionately call the poop brownies). But I decided to try something that my mom and I have been hearing about for a long time! Kale chips!
I don't know if you know much about kale but it's super healthy (full of iron and stuff). It's leafy greens and looks kind of like Romaine lettuce. My family buys it in a big bag of already cut pieces from the produce section and then we store it in the freezer! Works out well.
So kale chips. You rip up some pieces of kale (enough to fully fill - overlap, if you want! - on a cookie sheet). Then you add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and seasoning to taste, and cook for 10-20 minutes, flipping them occasionally.
How did it turn out, you may want to know. Pretty well. I think I used too much olive oil. And since my kale was frozen, it was hard for them to thaw, crisp, and not burn all at the same time. Next time I'll definitely thaw it first.
Yes, I did say next time! This time I used a Mrs. Dash garlic seasoning. Pretty tasty and smells reallyyyy good - just like garlic bread! But I really want to try it with southwest seasoning and maybe some red pepper flakes? Hot, hot, hot! It would be good though!
So yes. This recipe is probably a winner but I think it will take some experimenting to get it just right. I say "probably" because I can't decide if I really like it or not. Haha. My mom did not and my sister definitely did not. But I still want to try again!
At least it was better than the poop brownies! :)
