Kale – It’s Not Just For Wearing Anymore

Now, we all know that kale makes an excellent fashion accessory. But did you know that you can EAT kale?  True story!

My favourite way to eat kale is toasted into crispy deliciousness.  The recipe I use is here, but it can be summarized into five easy steps.

Step 1: Wash the kale and rip it up into little pieces (getting rid of the inner ribs):

Step 2: Coat with a bit of olive oil (essentially, you want to massage the kale with the oil to soften it up a bit).

Step 3: Sprinkle with a bit of red wine vinegar1.

Step 4: Spread on a cookie sheet and cook at 300 degrees F for ~35 minutes, until the kale is crispy.

  1. you can experiment with other vinegars too. The recipe called with sherry vinegar, which I don’t have, so I usually use red wine vinegar. But it’s good with balsamic vinegar too []

  1. I love kale, and this recipe looks fantastic- I must try it! I usually just throw it all in a pot with some mushrooms, green onions, green peppers, and other peppers of tasty goodness to make it all tasty and stuff. This is a great alternative to try- thanks!

  2. Someone brought this to my mom’s group last week, and it was so good I basically stood next to the bowl and cleaned it out. I bought kale yesterday and I’m going to try to make it today.
