Spicy Kale Chips, and Other Goodies

Posted on

Finally made the kale chips. They were easy but a bit time consuming.

The drink is a blood orange Cuban basil fizz. These were tonight’s cocktails on the deck. I also made a mostly local dinner to kick off our challenge to eat locally at least once a week. I did a veggie frittata tonight and served it with a Maryland wine.

The frittata used asparagus, scallions, turnips and eggs all local. There was some Parm in it, olives and olive oil, none of which are local. The bulk of the meal was local though.

The kale chips, from my CSA kale with salt, smoked paprika and white pepper. Roasted in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Crispy, salty and so good with the cocktail.

The wine, a Black Ankle Gruner Veltliner. A perfect match to the earthiness of the turnips, olives, scallions and asparagus. The frittata was started stove top and finished under the broiler.

It came out beautifully. Don’t even miss the meat in this dinner. Vegetarian, light and so tasty. Dessert later will be the last of the strawberry rhubarb crisp made with last week’s haul from the Howard County markets.
