Favorite easy kale recipes
I recently read that kale has become a hipster food. I have no idea what that means (except that maybe I need to stop clicking so many articles on Facebook!). Hipsters we are not. But kale lovers? Boy howdy. I thought we’d kick off this week with two of our favorite ways to cook kale. They’re really simple:
1. Kale chips
Kale chips are the easiest thing to make as a side at dinner.
Wash your kale, separate the leaves from the stems, and dry leaves. Toss with plenty of olive oil and kosher salt. Spread on a baking sheet and bake until crunchy. (Maybe 15 minutes?) Always make more than you think you’ll need.
2. Sautéed kale
Kale grows in Montana, which means it’s easy for us to put together a locally sourced breakfast with eggs and bacon from area ranches. And that makes us feel pretty darn good… so we eat more kale. ha.
To make: throw some olive oil and garlic or garlic scapes in a skillet. Rinse and chop kale. Toss into the skillet, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt and pepper.
