Food Friday by Kimberly
Eat your greens!
I’m back on the real food wagon but I still feel the need for snacks, I’m hoping I can’t go wrong with greens because I’m fortunate to genuinely like them 🙂
My favorite way to cook greens as a snack is to coat them in olive oil and then pan fry them with a little sea salt and a lot of pepper. This works best with brussel sprouts (sliced in halves or quarters) and broccoli, but I think other veggies would work just as well. I use medium heat – don’t want to overheat the extra virgin olive oil. Butter would work too, and then there’s bacon fat but it doesn’t caramelize well.
Another great green snack is kale, in the form of kale chips…you have to try it once to believe me, they are delicious. Wash a couple of kale leaves and rip them into small pieces (discard the hard center stem). Rub them with extra virgin olive oil and a touch of sea salt and lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 5 minutes and then flip them and bake some more until they just start to brown around the edges, you have to watch them closely, burnt kale doesn’t taste good. The only problem with kale chips is that they take longer to prep and cook then to eat; I take the baking sheet to the living room with an oven mitt and don’t even bother with a plate. My roommate likes them too, so this is primal food you’ll end up sharing. I have made multiple batches at once and I’ve found the best way to “store” them so they stay crispy is to pile them on an uncovered plate in the cupboard – to keep the cats and my roommate from nibbling 😛
