Kale has been my go-to veggie for the last couple years now! I put it in all of my smoothies. It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory antioxidants and has some amazing health benefits, right up there with blueberries (which is my go-to fruit). Rarely do I miss a day of these two super foods! And if I do, my body gets mad…no joke. I try my best to keep my body happy.
I know you do too, so I wanted to share with you a fun way I just discovered to eat my greens. ;) Some of you “veggie-challenged” people out there might even like this recipe, don’t knock it ’til ya try it! :)
1 bunch kale, stems discarded and leaves torn into roughly 1 1/2-inch pieces. You can use the “curly” kale which is easier to find and just as good for you, but I used Dino kale.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 Chocolate (12-ounce) package semisweet or dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Toss the kale with the olive oil and spread out on two baking sheets.
Roast for 8-15 min, or until lightly browned and crispy.
Put the chocolate into a heatproof medium bowl. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowl of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolate in a microwave at half power for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.)
Place kale on wax paper and use a spoon to drizzle chocolate lightly over kale. Let chocolate cool and harden before serving.
Hope you enjoy!
