Roasted Kale

Roasted Kale

This past week has been a crazy whirlwind week for me and now its settle down for a bit.  I looked in my fridge and realized that I had some kale that really need to be cooked up.  It was not really in a state that I wanted to eat it raw.  It could also be that I haven’t been in much of a mood to have raw kale.  I decided that roasting it would be more to my liking plus it was so easy and quick to do.  Since it was cleaned and had the stems removed earlier, I just needed to toss it with some key ingredients and then bake it in an oven.  Honestly, I prefer cold leftover roasted kale over raw kale anytime! Think of it as having a kale antipasto. Yum…now, you got me thinking about lunch!
