THE BEST KALE CHIPS 😋
Seriously. These babies are delicious and even if you THINK you hate kale, you gotta try it. I took a recipe I found online and kind of changed it up a bit.
-1 bunch kale
- 1-2 TBS avocado oil
-1 1/2 TBS nutritional yeast
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/4 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp coarse salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash your kale well! Very important. Then dry it well also. You’ll need to de-stem the leaves and break apart into pieces. .
Coat the kale with oil and seasonings, really massaging into the leaves. Spread leaves out with plenty of space, may need to use multiple sheets! If the kale is too crowded the steam will cause the leaves to wilt rather than crisp. .
Bake for about 7 minutes, keeping an eye on the leaves! Once starting to brown and crisp, take out of the oven and let cook for 5 minutes!
Try not to be like me and each the entire thing in one sitting 🤗😋Enjoy!
Pan-seared Beef Striploin in Red Wine Sauce and Bearnaise Sauce with Sautéed Kale and Roasted Fondant Potatoes. So alongside the Lyonnaise Salad, we did this plate for lab finals. I personally don’t like pan searing steak but I think it works when one is in a hurry; I prefer it seared just to brown a little but finished in the oven, medium rare. With Maldon salt, it is perfect (simple marination of olive oil, crushed garlic, thyme and pepper 30 minutes before cooking). Kale, a superfood, was tossed in olive oil and butter and seasoned. Fondant potatoes were shaped into discs then pan seared before roasting them in oven with veal demi glaze, beef stock and finishing with butter and seasoning. Made the sauces before cooking the steaks and kale as they involve time and focus. Almost simultaneously, I reduced both sauces on heat. With Bearnaise, I had to whisk egg into the reduction while on a double boiler until it reaches the ribbons stage. Afterwhich, clarified butter was added gradually until fully emulsified. With Red Wine sauce, after reduction and straining, monte au beurre the cold butter. This plate involved timing as much as technique. Awesome way to end Culinary Principles class. #food#foodie#foodgram#foodphotography#arankitchen#MyGBC#georgebrowncollege#toronto#torontolife#torontofood#steak#eatyourgreens#kale#fondantpotatoes#sauce#bearnaise#redwinesauce#reduction#cookingforone#alwayslearning#alwayshungry

This is my fav (and mostly only) way to eat kale! On its own it’s a bit bland - but add Tamari and coconut oil and it becomes very tasty.
Add a load of kale to a large baking dish. Add a tbsp or more of coconut oil and a few splashes of Tamari. Mix. Cook in oven for 7-8 mins, stir occasionally to make sure coconut oil is evenly distributed. Serve on their own as a snack or with salmon and brown rice. 🥬
Tamari is a great alternative to soy sauce - richer, less salty and generally gluten free (check bottle!) - it’s fermented soy beans so a good addition for a varied diet. .
Coconut oil has numerous health benefits - antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti viral, as well as a fat burner and can increase good cholesterol. It’s also safe to be heated. .
Finally good old kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods - high levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 👍👍 #kale#healthyfood#nutritionaltherapy
