NaBloPoMo Day 16: Savoury Treats

Well, this writing a blog post a day for the month of November is proving to be quite the task. With deadlines to be met, running after wayward cattle, trying to teach a toddler that pushing her friends is not nice and that she needs to remember to go to the toilet when she feels like peeing, I'm having difficulty coming up with quality writing material.

All you get today is...

Sweet Potato Chips and Kale Chips

Little One had a friend over yesterday and for a snack, I made baked sweet potato and kale chips. My friend came over the other day with her two boys and brought me some kale from their garden. Yes, it's November and they still have kale! Fabulous!!

Kale Chips
A bunch of kale
olive oil
sea salt

* Remove kale leaves from stem and cut/tear into bite sized pieces. Wash carefully and dry leaves.
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
* In a baking dish/cookie sheet, spread kale and drizzle olive oil, season with salt, and cook for 10-12 minutes. I do it for 10 min. Depending on how hot your oven runs, 12 min can sometimes make the kale chips too crunchy/crispy.

Sweet Potato Chips
1 large sweet potato
olive oil
sea salt

* Wash, clean, and peel sweet potato.
* Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
* Slice sweet potato in thin slices.
* Place on cookie sheet, drizzle olive oil, and sprinkle salt.
* Bake for 25 minutes

My toddler LOVES kale chips! She and her friend had "tea" with their kale and sweet potato chips and homemade hand-pressed apple juice.

Mommy loves how healthy these snacks are!

You can cook kale too. I've even sauteed them with some garlic (you can use extra virgin olive oil or butter if you like) and served it just like that.

I don't know if kale is my husband's fave thing to eat, but it is loaded with lots of nutrients and lots of iron. Gotta luv 'em leafy greens!

Urgh. Sorry about that. The word ver is pretty fussy today. Grrr.
