One of my new year resolutions is to learn how to cook – yes, it’s sad to admit that I’m a 20 years old “adult” that doesn’t know how to cook much.
But, better late than never! And what’s a perfect way to learn how to cook by starting off with simple dishes?
For all those looking for a healthy snack, I recommend kale chips. They take about 15 minutes (or less!) to make, super affordable and simple! For all those who don’t like kale or haven’t tried kale, I still recommend kale chips because they’re based on you season them! I never had kale before but the chips were amazing. People that said they don’t like kale usually enjoys kale chips too!
To start off, you’ll need:
– a bunch of kale
– olive oil
– optional: seasoning of your choice
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wash the kale and then rip them into bite-sized pieces; then lay them out to dry.
|It’s best to make sure the veggies are completely dry. Seasoning may have a hard time sticking to the greens if there’s still moisture.|
Once your kale is dry (I ended up patting out the left over water with a paper towel), throw them into a bowl and mix with olive oil, salt and your choice of seasoning. Adjust amount according to how much kale you have and your taste in seasoning.
|Olive oil, salt, black pepper;|
|Seasoned and everything! I don’t have a baking sheet (well… my parents lost it) so I’m using an oven-safe plate!|
Put into your oven and let it bake for about 15 minutes or until they’re crispy!
*Time depends on the amount of kale on your plate/baking sheet.
|Don’t mind what’s upstairs. I was also cooking my dinner :3|
|I put mines in for 20 minutes so a majority of them were burnt 😦 I didn’t use much kale so I should have decreased the time but nonetheless, the ones that weren’t burnt were super delicious and crispy! When I finished the plate, I just wanted to make more!|
|Derpina loves it when I’m making kale chips because that means she gets to eat the left over kale stems.|
