Kale Fever

So, the grand kale experiment today was DEEElicious!!!! I went to buy the kale this afternoon and took a few pictures of their garden and surroundings.

I brought it home, looked at it and said, “Hmmmmmmm….. Now what?”

One of my friends (actually, a few of them!) recommended kale chips. So that’s where we started. I cut the stems off of the kale, washed and dried them well, put them on a baking sheet and sprinkled olive oil and salt on them. Then I put them in the oven at 350 degrees (that’s 175 to you friends in Israel) for 12 minutes.

So, they turned out a bit too salty, but I loved them anyway. None of the little boys wanted any, so we waited for the big boys to get home to see if they would like them.

I guess they did.

When he finished licking the plate, Yehuda said, “Isn’t there any more we can make?” and ran to the refrigerator to get the rest of the bag. I made them, and they were gone in a flash. As I popped the last one in my mouth, Yehuda said, “Oh darn. I wanted to bring some to school tomorrow!” Kale chips at school…now that’s a new one.

We also made kale and bean soup and it was fantastic. Not a drop was left after dinner. Here’s the recipe for that one.

Next up? I’ve got no more kale, so I don’t know what’s next.

But when I get my hands on some more (hopefully next week), we’ll try out a kale and pasta recipe and some other yummy delights.

Betaovon! בתאבון

Good Eating to You All!
