As for my new favorite kind of weird food? Kale "chips." Now I am not known to be the world's most healthful eater and this is probably not new to you, but I've just recently been hearing about this stuff called kale chips, which is supposed to be a super-healthful and easy to make and good-tasting (what what?!).
And as an avid reader of KERF - and she eats the stuff at least once a week - I thought what the heck, when I was at Fresh Market over the weekend and grabbed a bunch of kale to try it (original recipe I followed here, but I added some cheese à la KERF recipe here).
BF wouldn't touch them, but they don't taste bad at all - like a real thin, crisp chip with a faint tinge of seaweed (and I don't mean they are fishy, more like the big sheets they roll sushi with). I've had them twice so far and sprinkled on a bit of garlic powder and pepper with the second batch. Just make sure you don't over-crisp them - they turn quickly from crispy chip to crumbly ash.
Try them as your next sammie side dish:
Before: the kale leaves cut from the stems and sprinkled with some parm, pepper and olive oil - ready for baking!
After: the finished kale "chips."
What kind of other non-traditional foods do you ladies like to eat? Are there other incredibly healthful (and secretly delicious) recipes I should be considering?
