I know I haven’t posted a recipe in quite some time.
This isn’t exactly a RECIPE per say, it’s just a great, easy way
to get your greens!
When I was growing up, the only vegetables I ate were corn, potatoes and green beans.
My parents weren’t big vegetable eaters, so they didn’t really push veggies at my
brother and me.
Yeah, I was one lucky kid…..no liver, no icky veggies I didn’t like.
I didn’t really experiment with any other vegetables until I got married.
My husband’s mom and dad put out a garden, so she was always cooking up some sort of vegetable,
so I would always give it a go and try what she had cooked (I learned the “trying” from my
grandfather…..he got me to try shrimp, oysters on the half shell and he is the reason why I’m a total
seafood lover….he also got me to like fried okra. I still like pretty much anything fried)
Thanks to my MIL I now love all kinds of vegetables…..the only one I really still dislike is brussel sprouts and raw celery.
I’ve tried brussel sprouts roasted, steamed, sauteed, sauced, you name it, I’ve tried it and still can’t tolerate them!!
Tonight I made kale chips.
I’ve made them before, but just wanted to share how much I love them and how awesome they are
(well, awesome for a snacky veggy)……
All you have to do is remove the tough stem from the kale, then toss them with some olive oil
or grapeseed oil,
then I like to sprinkle a little salt or parmesan cheese on them. Tonight I just
Put them on a foil lined cooking sheet and cook them at 300 degrees for about 15-20 minutes
or until they get crisp.
