Well, its official. Another year has passed and a new year has begun! We’d like to start this year off with a little luck. In the South (and other regions of the world as well), it is lucky to eat cooked greens, as they resemble folded money. It’s believed that the more cooked greens you eat, the greater your fortune will be for the next year.
We’re going to start our 2012 New Year out with a little crispy money, then move into some alternative applications of these leafy vegetables. Today, we’re serving up a Paleo standby…the baked kale chip. Who doesn’t love these? And with our zesty seasoning, we dare you to try to eat just one! ;)
Baked Kale Chips
½ bag Kale (about 4 cups, cut into small pieces)
1 ½ tsp Adobo Seasoning
¼ tsp Onion Powder
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
½ Tbsp Sesame Oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix the adobo seasoning, onion powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
Break the kale into bite sized pieces and dry the kale on the paper towels. Put the kale in a bowl. Drizzle the oil over the kale and mix thoroughly. I like to use gloves because it’s easier to clean up.
Then season the oil coated kale with the seasoning.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the kale out on the baking sheet.
Bake for 12-25 minutes (I take them out around 17 minutes because I like them crispy, but with a little chew), or until the edges of the kale turns brown.
Try these with our delicious Rib Eye Steak!
