So tonight was just the cherry on top of an amazing weekend. This weekend has really been both busy and fun. I had work on Saturday, though that isn’t much to brag about, work is work. But the fun started on Saturday night when my awesome Fiancé made me an out-of-this-world dinner, but I’ll blog about that later. today was jam-packed as well, I went to a bridal show with my Fiancé, mother, sister, his mom and his sister. After all that I still had some fun, as my lovely cousin came over.
It was a pretty amazing time when my cousin came over, we had an amazing vegetarian meal, shared some tea and had a good game of scrabble. All in all I think it was a pretty awesome hang out time. Very chill and very laid back. Nice after a long long day at a wedding show. It was just so nice and amazing to see her because it has been such a long time since we last hung out. We chatted so much that she stayed over for dinner. We had an assortment of vegetarian stuff, some leftover lentil salad, some chips and salsa, along with some guacamole. We also tried something new called kale chips, which is what I’m going to be talking about in this blog.
Kale chips are pretty simple and easy to make and don’t really need to much instructions. But I may be getting too much ahead of myself here. You may be wondering, if you have never heard about it, what is kale? Kale is a form of cabbage, a wild form of it. It can be either green or purple. Kale is very healthy for one to eat and has many nutrients such as beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, calcium, and a few others. Kale apparently also contains chemicals that are anti-cancer. So all good so far…. there are just so many reasons why eating kale is beneficial.
So we decided to make fun kale and make it in the form of chips. Healthy needs to be appealing, right? Eaxctly what Ricardo had in mind with his recipe. So basically, all you need for this recipe to work, is kale ( of course), olive oil and salt and pepper. Pretty easy, huh? I think so. Before cooking this kale, you need to tear the kale into large pieces and also remove the stems.
Next you need to pre-heat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). While the oven is getting ready, you just need to put the kale in the olive oil and then add salt and pepper. Once that is all done, just put the pieces of kale on a baking sheet. I recommend putting parchment paper on the sheet so that it isn’t such a mess to clean. So once that is all done, and the oven is ready, just pop in the kale and you’re ready to go. The kale should stay in for around 20 minutes.
Once the kale is ready, just take it out of the oven and serve. Voila, you have an awesome, healthy and tasty treat to munch on while studying, or entertaining guests.This is all courtesy of Ricado’s amazing recipe; you can check it out here: http://www.ricardocuisine.com/recipes/5245-kale-chips-and-roasted-chicken-legs-with-parmesan Have a good Sunday everyone!
