Sage and Onion Kale Chips


2013/01/25 by nikkiledford

Kale is a great green. I mean, truly wonderful.

Let me count the ways:

  • shredded into soup
  • juiced with some celery, beets, carrots, ginger, and lemon
  • blended into a smoothie with coconut and banana (click pic for recipe)

  • sautéed into stir-fry, eggs, side dishes
  • massaged with oil into salads.

and finally, a hippie favorite….

  • Baked into chips!

Kale chips are the ultimate rescue for the fat kid in all of us who wants to pound an entire bag of potato chips in an afternoon. They are chips, made from leaves. Brilliant!

Dress them up with some spices and herbs and you’re all set to snack your brains out.

Sage and Onion Kale Chips

2 bunches kale, de-stemmed and rinsed clean
2 Tbsp. olive oil (I used truffle olive oil)
1/2 onion, sliced thin
2 tsp powdered sage
1 tsp. rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of red pepper flakes

  1. Make sure your kale is dry and chop into large pieces.
  2. Toss with all the remaining ingredients.
  3. Preheat oven to 350
  4. Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Spread the kale mix into a thin layer on the baking sheet and bake for 10-15 mins.
  6. The chips should be crispy and starting to turn golden (but not brown)
  7. If some are getting done before others, remove those and continue to bake the others until they are finished. Just keep an eye on them after 10 mins of baking.

PUMPKIN FIG OATS //Caught some morning light on my morning bowl of goodness. I made this last week and it was so good (and loved by my child) that I made another batch! I don't know if it's the figs or golden raisins, the coconut milk or the collagen, or maybe it's the banana and the pumpkin that make this bowl of oats absolutely satisfying for a day of leading, teaching, cooking, sweating, loving, and seeking. 
#sometimesibreakfast #sometimesidont #glutenfreeoats #notpaleo #dairyfreeoats INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!)
