Karen's Baked Kale Chips
We've done this in the past, but with the different varieties of Kale sprouting up this time of year, Karen whipped up some of her famous baked Kale chips. It's a quick, tasty, healthy side dish that can go with anything.
The best part about it, we harvested these from the Center Avenue Community Garden less than hour before we enjoyed them for dinner!
Here's how we did it:
The vegetables are looking great in the Prosperity bed. Go figure!
Brenna did a great job collecting the kale and packing them gently in our bag. From the comfort of the garden wagon.
Karen's Kale Chip recipe: Cut Kale into chip-sized pieces. Dip them lightly into some Olive Oil on a plate, lay them on baking pan, and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes, but make sure to keep an eye on them!
Chips were served with a Garden tomato and basil side, as well as an open-faced chicken salad sandwich. Good stuff!
