Beachwood Canyon + Kale Chips

Heather and her girls at pick-up

Russian Kale

Dear Tara,

We absolutely love our Tuesday Veggie pickups. I do have to admit that sometimes all these gorgeous vegetables are a bit daunting. I successfully made it through nettles: soup, pesto, tea, steamed...

My most recent challenge is KALE. I know that it's one of the healthiest vegetables around, loaded with Vitamins A & C and calcium and iron. Here's a way to make them crunchy, salty and still healthy!


Generously drizzle chopped leaves with olive oil.
Roast at 350 degrees until crispy (15-20 minutes).
Sprinkle with sea salt.

Thank you for enhancing our lives,
Mary Kay Patrick

Thank you Mary Kay!

ORANGES - yay!
