So the other day on Facebook, I was asking if it was ok to eat Kale that was flowering?
Mainly because my garden is overrun with it!
I didn’t pull out my kale at the end of last summer and a beautiful thing happened, it kept growing ALL winter!!
Now it’s flowering (making babies) and it’s very beautiful!
I loved the contrast of the purple, green and yellow! So pretty!
Did you see the bee in the middle picture? Him and I made a deal, if I didn’t move to fast, or ask him to smile, he wouldn’t sting me
Then I made Kale chips and they were GOOD!!
I’ve made kale chips a few times before with the steps so go here for the steps and my favourite “sauce” recipe so far.
For this Kale Chip “Sauce”
1/4 cup raw almonds
1 TBSP. apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup nooch
1-2 tsp garlic powder or fresh garlic
alt to taste
water (just enough to make it blend)
That’s all – Blended it together and then massaged onto my kale!
Into the dehydrator it went
And Volia – my beloved kale chips!!
If you don’t have a dehydrator – I have directions here for the oven method!
As a side note – if you have EVER eaten store bought kale chips and thought they were gross, make sure to try homemade ones!! They are WAY better!! I have never had store bought ones that I’ve enjoyed!
oh that is some seriously gorgeous kale. I bet it tastes divine too!ReplyDelete
I love kale chips but lately in my area the price of kale has gone up and the bunches have gotten really small!ReplyDelete
YOU ARE SO LUCKY! I love kale but we absolutely can't get it here. Meaning I haven't eaten it in 4 years! And you have it growing right in your yard. LUCKY! And oh yum, those chips look incredible.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photos! I am learning to like kale, but it is not my favourite veggie.ReplyDelete
Your kale looks fabulous! I wish I had a kale garden...full of nothing but delicious kale! :)ReplyDelete
Oh yum!! I need to try kale chips with almonds. I always use cashews and hemp seeds.ReplyDelete
Btw, I have not forgotten about the guest post. It has just been really kind of nuts here. In the meantime, if you want some quinoa pizza, stop by :)
I love your bumble bee friend! Those pictures are awesome Jessica! I want to try your recipe!ReplyDelete
