This weekend I enjoyed my grandson, but he came over with a cold. He is too irresistible to not hold, kiss and just eat up. I woke up this morning with a sore throat, achy body and a headache like a truck run me over a few times. I decided today I was going to rest and eat food that will help nurse my cold and make me feel comforted.
I love my friend Felicia who called me to see if I needed anything, but I have all the holistic medicine I need in my pantry and fridge. But God knows I appreciate her heart to want to take care of me. Last night I made for my boys homemade Lasagna. They loved it. I took the leftover homemade pasta and made this Vegan Fettuccine in Garlic oil with fennel, peppers, tomatoes and onions. You can find my pasta recipe in my cookbook, Set the Table with Love. I also made my Spicy Garlic and Onion Soup, this time I added some porcini mushrooms. Well my last garlic treat is these yummy Spicy Garlic Kale Chips. Super easy to make.
Spicy Garlic Kale Chip
Pulled kale leaves from bushel of dark kale ( I pull the leaves off and break them into chip size bites, without the stem)
1 tbsp garlic flavored olive oil, or regular olive oil ( enough to cover the kale lightly)
Garlic Powder, to taste
Pinch red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 170. Place kale on a cookie sheet & drizzle the olive oil over top. Toss well to make sure the kale is evenly coated, then spread it out evenly in the pan. Sprinkle a little of the garlic powder and cayenne pepper or your a pinch of red pepper flakes. Bake for 1 hour.
Place in your favorite chip bowl and enjoy.
