2014 CSA Week 1! Kale Chips

kale chips

I was super excited to pick up my CSA 1/2 share last Friday. The beginning weeks are always full of greens, so I knew salad would be in my future. However, this begins the summer when I never have to go grocery shopping because I get so much produce that I can barely eat it all in time. This also means preserving time in the future!

CSA Bounty Week 1:

  • head of boston butterhead lettuce
  • head of another kind of lettuce
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 1 bag of sprouts (mustard, celery, etc.)
  • some mint
  • bag of arugula

Kale Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Tear kale into pieces and spread the leaves on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the leaves. Bake until crisp…about 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. (If you salt prior to baking, for some reason they often become WAY too salty!) You can change up the flavor to anything you want! Garlic powder works great, nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy flavor, cayenne gives them a kick, etc.
