Fall Friday

First friday of fall 2009...
Ryan's lunch: mini whole wheat pitas w/hummus & cucumber; apple slices; flat pretzels; roasted pumpkin seeds; blanched spinach; mango gel cup on the side.

It seems like everybody has their version of kale chips, baked kale leaves, roasted kale, etc. Here's my version...

Kale Crisps

4-6 large kale leaves
1/2 tsp. kelp powder
spray olive oil

Wash kale and pat dry
with a towel. Pull or
tear off big bite-sized pieces from the stems. (Discard the stem or save for another use.)
Spray a baking sheet with olive oil. Place kale pieces on the baking sheet. Spray the leaves lightly with olive oil. Toss to coat. Sprinkle on the kelp powder.
Bake in a 350F oven for 10-12 minutes.

Nate loves these...he calls them "those weird things." "Can I have more of those weird things please??" LOL.

Hmm. I've never had kale chips. I might have to give this a try.
