like Dan & I are....you've probably heard the guff (what an awesome 70s word!)
going around about Cauliflower Chips and Kale Chips.
I actually just heard about the Cauliflower chips from my friend Maureen
(who I'm sure will blog about them soon...right Maureen?)
over at It's All Connected, but I recently attempted to make both of these on
a lazy afternoon when Dan & I were kicking back watching "The Wire" Season One.
Very simple to do! I got my recipe from Allrecipes.com and it was informative
and most of all...an absolutely delicious alternative to potato chips!
Wash your kale
Cut out the center stem
Tear into bite size chunks
Spin in salad spinner to dry
Toss in a bowl with drizzled olive oil.
Line a cookie sheet with Parchment Paper.
Bake in a 350F oven for 10-12 minutes til crispy.
loved the wondrous flavour and crispy, light texture of them.
Only problem I can see is that next time, we'll need to make two batches, because it
truly does shrink up soooo much!
This was a flub for me.
However, upon rereading my source, which I'll get to shortly, I'm embarassed I
couldn't make them as wonderfully as they looked on her blog!
I believe I made the mistake of not leaving them in long enough.
I was worried they'd burn.
So, don't worry and TRY THEM!
Delightful Momma made these and they look mouthwatering!
The taste of mine was good, just not as crispy as I'd like to have them because
in my fear of them burning the poppers, I turned the oven down and took them out
15 minutes earlier than I should have.
I see now her posting reads "the browner the better".
Next time I'll try to hold myself back from my fears!
with NO FEAR!
Give these healthy snacks and try and let me know what you think okay?
It's the weekend and time to snack!
