Too Much Kale?

It’s that time of year where gardens are starting to produce an overabundance of veggies. Like most years, I know people that have so much kale that they don’t know what to do with it all. Freezers are already full and friends have already taken more than enough, yet the plants keep producing. Is there a solution to this so that the food doesn’t get wasted?

Actually, there is a viable solution that’s fairly quick and easy-kale chips. I’m personally not a fan of this vitamin packed snack, but I’ve found a good use for them. I simply make them in my oven and then crush them up and use them like seasoning. Save it for soup for this fall, sprinkle in pasta sauce, sprinkle on your favorite meal, etc. They really don’t have a strong flavor and the vitamins stay in the veggie even when roasted in the oven. Plus the crushed kale chips take far less storage space in the kitchen. For best results store in a glass container with a tight-fitting lid.
