My Favorite Kale Chips – Spiced Lemon and Tahini

Hello!

As a past potato chip addict (I am glad to say I have kicked this one) I am always searching for “chips” that give me the same satisfaction as potato chips. AND are good for me. I stumbled across kale chips about a year ago and was buying them in Trader Joes and Whole Foods for who knows how much, but it was draining my wallet! So, recently I gained the courage to try making them myself and I am so happy with the results! This recipe is just my favorite currently, I love some heat and to have them baked crispy so feel free to customize how you like! Taste the seasoning and see what you like. Okay let’s get into this recipe!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (around 350 degrees F).
  2. Rinse your kale well and remove all the stems. Make sure to dry your kale VERY well, this is essential if you want crispy delicious chips!
  3. In a large bowl combine all your seasonings, lemon juice, tahini and olive oil.
  4. Pour your kale into the bowl and using your hands mix thoroughly until each kale “chip” is covered with seasoning.
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the kale chips evenly on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes, flipping the chips over halfway and checking them every 5 minutes or so (they can burn quickly).
  7. Remove your kale chips from the oven, and enjoy!

Servings: Makes 1-2 servings
Prep&Cook Time: 25 minutes

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you give kale chips a try!

Loaded Vegetable Lentil Chili

Hello!

Today I am making my first cold weather recipe of the fall/winter season! I recently moved to Sweden and it has definitely changed what I crave for dinner. Lots of soups and stews are coming your way! Now about this recipe, before I went vegan I really didn’t like chili. It just seemed gross to me. Now this is the first recipe I really enjoy making! But, it is definitely a bit thinner than chili traditionally is, so if you are a thicker chili kinda guy/gal then you can add less stock and it will thicken up! I wanted to add as many veggies as I could fit in here and try to keep it healthier even though it tastes just like winter comfort food!

Serve with toppings you like and something to dip with! Let’s get into the recipe!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 yellow onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 large vine tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • 1 can of yellow corn
  • 2 medium zuchinnis
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 4 dl/1.7 cups of lentils
  • 2.5 dl/1.05 cups of vegan ground “beef”
  • 10 dl/4.2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 10 ml/2.03 tsp of Taco Seasoning
  • 5 ml/1.01 tsp of chili pepper
  • 5 ml/1.01 tsp of dried shallots
  • 1 ml/.2 tsp  of cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop your vegetables and tomatoes so you are prepped for cooking!
  2. With your pot on a medium heat, Sauté your onions garlic and ground “beef” with some olive oil or a splash of water until fragrant and lightly browned.
  3. Add in the tomatoes, zucchinis, bell peppers, jalapeno and let that cook down for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add in your seasoning and mix well, next add in your vegetable stock.
  5. Bring your stock to a boil and add in your lentils. Cover and let this simmer on medium heat until the lentils are cooked through.
  6. Once the lentils are ready you are going to add in your beans and corn. Stir and taste the chili, if needed add more seasoning.
  7. Let this simmer on a low heat covered for at least 30 minutes! I like to leave mine for 40 minutes or until it thickens up a bit.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Prep and Cook Time: 70 minutes
Servings: Makes 8-10 servings

Hope you try this recipe out! Thanks for stopping by!
