The only sounds to be heard this dinner! KALE CHIPS:
I was very skeptical that these would turn out, but I did some internet research and it seemed that many people made them successfully, so we gave them a try.
I REALLY liked them!!! They were just like chips – I put a good bit of Crazy Salt on them to make them kind of salty. I think because kale is chewy to begin with they were crunchy but still had chew to them. It wasn’t just air, which is how I thought they’d turn out. They really were like thin potato chips!
And the best part is it took me a looong time to make my way through this pile. By the way, this pile (including a drizzle of EVOO and and a sprinkle of Asiago) was only about 100 kcal. Talk about healthy chips!
- Preheat oven to about 375*
- Use about 1 OXO salad spinner’s worth of kale (which was a stuffed grocery store veggie bag). Trim off stems and cut into bite size pieces. Spread out on cookie sheets.
- Drizzle with about 2 tsp of olive oil
- Sprinkle with Parmesan, Asiago or your seasonings of choice.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, until edges are brown and kale is crispy when moved in pan.
With the kale we popped some MorningStar Original Grillers in the oven to have with yummy potato buns. I topped my burger with ketchup, mustard, pickle, jalapeño and some Cholula hot sauce.
MY GOSH these buns are SO doughy!!
Next to the kale chip mountain (I’m seeing a mountain theme in my meals these days….)
All together with unsweet, milked Thai tea –
This dinner was about 435 kcal, 6 grams fiber and 27 grams protein.
Ginger cookies with a blob of peanut butter. I went back for one more plain cookie that I didn’t photograph! I have to say the ginger/peanut combo wasn’t the best so I ate the peanut butter off and then ate the cookies!
Mocha yogurt (I LOVE coffee yogurts and can never find them so when I do a snag it!) with TJ’s high fiber cereal. I like taking the yogurt out of the container – it’s more fun to eat in a nice big bowl than feeling claustrophobic with your cereal in the container!
See you guys for steel cut oats in the AM!
