I admit it. I was once a kale hater. Then I found a few ways to make it and now it’s a regular item in my house. Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. Just one cooked cup has 36 calories and provides a whopping 1,180% of your daily-recommended intake (DRI) of vitamin K. That’s more than any other food on the planet. Crazy!?
One of the ways I love to make kale is seared with shallots, garlic, chicken stock and red pepper flakes. Once it’s cooked I drizzle it with balsamic vinegar and goodness, is it ever amazing.
I also love to have kale chips on hand when I am wanting a little snacky crunch.
Kale chips are a delicious, easy, and inexpensive way to get more greens into your diet. Try this recipe for original flavored kale chips or spice them up with other herbs and essential oils for more options. I like garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, and Lemon oil for an Italian twist, or cumin and Lime oil for Mexican-style chips.
1 large bunch kale, washed and torn into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
Salt & pepper
- Preheat oven to 200° F.
- Wash and dry kale thoroughly.
- Combine olive oil and Lemon oil in large mixing bowl.
- Add kale and toss. Make sure kale is well coated with oils.
- Once coated, place on baking sheet in single layer.
