Greek Kale Chips

So if you are even a slight bit of a health foodie, chances are you have heard of and probably even tasted kale chips. Recipes are out there all over the internet, but the most basic is kale, olive oil, and salt. Which in my opinion can get kinda bland. You can obviously change-up the seasonings, make it spicy, sweet, etc. Lately I have been trying to use this greek seasoning that I bought at a local farmers market on everything. I absolutely love it! I put it on everything from fish, chicken, potatoes, and now kale!

So here is how I made mine!

2-3 large bunches of kale (I used baby kale from my garden)

juice of 1 lemon

olive oil

salt

Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning

1. Wash the kale, removing the stems. If you are using full size kale (not baby kale) tear it into chip sizes pieces. Place kale in a large bowl. Squeeze the juice from 1 lemon over the kale.

2. Drizzle kale with olive oil and toss, making sure that it is evenly coated.

3. Sprinkle kale with the greek seasoning and salt (to taste). Toss again.

4. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet evenly spread kale out in a single layer. Working in batches, bake kale in a 350 deg preheated oven for about 8 minutes, flipping kale half way though.

5. After taking kale out of the oven to cool taste to see if it needs more salt. Enjoy!

Savory Popcorn

I was feeling a little hungry after dinner so I decided to make popcorn. As I was getting ready to make it the semi-old fashion way (air popper) I decided to jazz it up a bit. What I came up with is a sophisticated little snack.

1/4 c unsalted butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried rosemary, finely chopped
6-8 cups popcorn*

1. In a small sauce pan place rosemary, salt, and butter. Melt over medium heat about 5 minutes.

2. Pour over the popped popcorn, toss, and enjoy!

*I personally like just a light coating of butter, so I usually use 8 cups of popcorn.
