In the spirit of kale week, I made some kale chips. Yep, I'm hopping on the food blog bandwagon once again! These kale chips are popping up everywhere these days. But now I know why.
The oven was preheated to 375F.
I drizzled some olive oil, salt, pepper, and paprika onto some chopped kale on a baking sheet and mixed it around. Then I put it in the oven for 10 minutes.
While waiting, I made a quesadilla.
I took out a skillet and warmed up two miniature corn tortillas. Then I sprinkled on some grated cheese and sliced tomatoes and let it heat up.
After that, the kale chips were complete!
Quicker than I ever expected!
Kale is a really tough and hardy green, unlike spinach which is really light and easy to chew. I never would have expected this, but these kale chips were extremely thin and almost melted in my mouth! With the seasonings, they were delicious! I was shoveling them into my mouth like crazy.
Who says you can't make a gourmet meal in a rush?! (I prepared and ate this meal in less than 30 minutes, start to finish. Ridiculously easy).
