Green Beans and Kids Eating Them

Thanks for all your nice comments on my last post. Things have been spotty here lately and for that I apologize. I’ve missed you all terribly and appreciate your love notes.  And, you guys have some very clever ideas.

So, as promised, here’s how you make the green beans. Throw a bunch on a cookie sheet and pour on a little olive oil. Rub them around with your hand to get them all stirred up. Salt them. I like lots of salt. Put them in the oven set to 425 F for about 7 minutes. Stir them up. Put them back in for another 7 minutes. Ta-da. Make lots. They’ll go quickly.

If you want something a bit more precise, you can go here.

On another note, kale chips? Really? I hear they’re awesome but have not had a positive experience. Someone convince me. Email me or leave me a comment with a recipe if you have one that works.

Next week: kale rice.

    Hi Katherine;
    I have had good experiences with kale chips. Here’s how I make them: get a large bunch of organic kale; wash; cut out the stems and cut the leaves into pieces about the size of playing cards. Put all the kale pieces into a large bowl, add olive oil and toss so that they are all coated with oil. Add salt and pepper or other spices such as garlic salt, onion powder, or chili powder. Spread on a cookie sheet and put in a very low oven – not more than 300 degrees. The lower the temperature, the better. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, toss and turn, and bake for another 8 – 10 minutes or until done. They should be crisp, but not brown. Be careful to watch that they do not burn. When done, remove from oven, cool and store loosely in a closed paper bag. Eat like potato chips and enjoy!
