It’s been a few weeks since my last “Foodie Friday in a Flash,” but I’m back in action! Today, we’re discussing one of my very favorites … kale!

I challenge you to make those kale chips if you’ve never tried them yourself! They’re ready in 10 minutes or less, and make a great and healthy snack! You can also check out my other kale recipes:
- Creamy Kale Artichoke Dip (so good for football season!)
- Kale Lettuce Wraps with Tofu, Quinoa, and Veggies
- Lorna Jane Cleanse Elixir
- Healing Vegetable Soup
- Warm-Me-Up Chicken Quinoa Soup
- Autumn Harvest Soup
- Fall Chicken and Kabocha Casserole
- Easy Chickpea and Kale Soup
- Black Bean, Kale, and Hominy Stew
I also mention the kale that I’m growing on my roof deck (which is now inside thanks to the frost in Dallas!). I’ll talk in detail about my super-cool hydroponic growing system in a future post, but if you want more information or to buy your own, you can always check out my Tower Garden website!
And last, as I was looking for pictures of kale, I found this sign in the grocery store, which struck me as funny. “Probably the healthiest thing in produce”?? Something about that phrase just makes me laugh!
So tell me in the comments … What is your favorite way to enjoy kale? What food do you want to see next for Foodie Friday in a Flash?
I think it’s the “probably” that’s funniest. It makes it sound like it was written by a 22 year old assigned to the produce department. I can picture him in my mind.
Love kale, I use it in smoothies a lot.
Kale is awesome! Love it cooked or in a salad.
I agree, Lauren!
Huge fan of Kale chips here! !
Awesome, Kirtley! Me too!
Kale is one of the great 2014 additions to our staple diet – in salads, baked as chips, sautéed and added into pretty much anything we cook … it is a really great way to get loads of great nutrients. Great video 🙂
Thank you, Michael! I appreciate you watching!
