As my fiance and I enter the fifth week of our farm share, we are still utterly enamored of the harvest that comes our way each week. The staples, like fresh beets and scallions, are always welcome, and every Wednesday there is something new to give us a little thrill. This week: new potatoes!
Still, when you find yourself staring down at enormous bunches of kale, Swiss chard, and beet and turnip greens each week, you do start to wonder how many times you can sautee them with garlic and onion, delectable an option as it is.
Lucky for me, Red Fire Farm sends out seasonal recipes with each week's harvest e-mail, and keeps even more on their fabulous website. Whether you have a farm share or are just looking for a creative way to prepare your goodies from the market, it is a great place to turn for some delicious and often surprising ideas. My favorite so far? Kale chips! I've included the recipe here, and you can follow this link to see the other yummy ideas that Red Fire has in store for you.
Easy Kale Chips
1 lb kale, chopped
Preheat oven to 400
Toss kale with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake, turning every 5 minutes until brown and crispy. Kale should be dry and able to be eaten by hand like chips!
