How has your Victoria Day long weekend been treating you? The weather is gorgeous here. So far I have done some shopping at a few local shops and garage sales. I picked up two beautiful locally painted pictures. I love them! I’m going to change the yellow mat for a white mat and frame them in a simple black frame. The best part I only paid a total of $6 dollars for these paintings. Today I spent the afternoon at the beach. I continued to read The Paleo Diet book by Loren Cordain. I’m learning some interesting facts about the changes in our meat.
Last week I promised you the recipe for the side dish I served with Low Carb Orange Chicken. It all began when I asked on twitter, “Do you eat kale chips with your meals?” The response was mostly, “no” but most people never thought of eating it with their meals. I LOVE kale chips and I eat them with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes I mix-up the flavour of kale chips with different spices. Last week I was going through an “All-Dressed” flavour obsession which caused my sweet potato, chicken, and kale all to be enhanced by this spice mix.
What is your favourite chip flavour? Mine is sour cream & onion.
Low Carb All-Dressed Kale Chips
Author: Carol Lovett
Recipe type: Snack, Side Dish
- All-Dressed Spice Mix:
- ¼ tsp of dried oregano leaves
- ¼ tsp of sweet smoked paprika (I used paprika)
- ¼ tsp fine sea salt
- ⅛ tsp cayenne
- ⅛ tsp garlic powder
- ⅛ tsp onion powder
- ⅛ tsp black pepper
- *Makes about ¼ cup of the spice mixture.
- All-Dressed Kale Chips Recipe:
- 1 bunch of Kale
- 1-2 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Wash & dry the kale.
- Using your hands or a knife separate the leaf from the stem. The stem does not bake well.
- Rip or cut the leaves into chip sizes.
- Place the kale in a bowl.
- Pour the olive oil over the kale covering ALL of the kale. This will help the kale chips get crispy.
- Sprinkle your desired amount of the All-Dressed spice mixture over the leaves.
- Place leaves on a baking sheet with parchment paper. *HINT do not overcrowd the baking sheet. Overcrowding will result in soggy chips.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. *I found the more kale on the baking sheet the longer it takes for the chips to bake.
- After 10 minutes of baking watch the leaves carefully. If they burn they taste bitter.
- When the chips are crispy they are done. If you have some leaves that are still soft just put those back in the oven for a little longer.
- Snack away
