Wednesday evening I made Kale Chips and Broccoli Salad. As with all adventures, some times there are failures. All you can do is re-evaluate and try to do better next time. Here is what happened.
Broccoli (I did not have a full head, just the pieces shown above)
1 tbsp mayo
parsnip (I did not have carrots and had this one lonely parsnip, so I gave it a try)
shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
First, I cut the tree tops off the broccoli and washed them. I think that is the best way to wash broccoli, otherwise the water just rolls off the top.:
Next I made Kale chips. This was not a total fail as my husband and I ate several of them. Here were the ingredients:
First, I pre-heated the oven to 350. Then I ripped the leaves off the kale stems into bite sized pieces. I washed the kale pieces. Then, I ran the kale through a salad spinner several times. Finally, I put the kale on a foil lined cookie sheet. I sprayed it with olive oil (using the handy dandy misto olive oil sprayer pictured in the back of the above photo), and salted them with sea salt. Finally, I baked the kale for 15 minutes at 350. Here is the finished product:
If you don't sometimes fail, you are not being adventurous enough. That is what I will keep telling myself about these culinary disasters. Friday evening I am making a trusted recipe, so if you want something you can actually use yourself, tune in then.
