Organic turnip chips

Ok so I get these organic veggies delivered every two weeks and I never know what I’m going to get. The last month or so it has been lots of root veggies, including many turnips. So I thought .. How bout chips. Here’s how I did it:
Three or however many turnips, red or white, does not matter. Slice them as thinly as you can.  Sprinkle on  some olive oil, salt, pepper, whatever seasonings you want.  Bake at a temp of 400 for 15 or 20 minutes.

My advice would be… slice them as thin as you possibly can… and don’t let them overcook as I did mine! They were still good however, even according to Jeremiah the poodle!

Organic kale chips

I have been wanting to try to make kale chips for a really long time. I get organic vegetable delivery and there’s almost always kale and I almost never know what to do with it. So I saw this recipe for baked kale chips and I have known people who have made and love them  In the first pic, I have separated the kale leaves from their ribs.   In the second, I have tossed them with olive oil and roasted garlic rosemary salt. Then into the oven they went at 350 degrees. The last picture is of the finished product. They are  really good! But I do think I overdid the salt a little. Next time less of that…. but they are very crispy and have a nice flavor… and healthy and low carb and all that. I’ll be making these again 🙂

Organic veggies

The idea of organic foods has become very popular. Maybe they do or maybe they don’t contain more nutrients than our typical grocery store fare. But one thing is certain they are definitely more yummy. Many communities have the availability of ordering organic vegetables from local farmers, And I like the idea of supporting our local farmers!  I live near Chicago so I order vegetables from a place called Irv and Shelly’s fresh pics… All the vegetables are from local farmers and I order eggs that are organic from free range chickens that have run around the grass living happy lives. Surprisingly the cost is very reasonable. So I would encourage anyone to check out what is available in their locale.
