Lemon Parmesan Kale Chips

We felt extraordinarily indecisive the other day and had a refrigerator stocked with veggies, so we decided to make a four part veggie tapas platter for dinner! The other components we served this were Ginger Turmeric Sugar Snap Peas, Mushroom and Flax Balls, and Bittersweet Green Beans. We also put a little couscous in the center of the plate to give us a carb and something to tie everything together.

This component took a little bit of a leap of faith to make…the last time we had Kale Chips was on an airplane (that should tell you how long ago it was), and when we opened the bag, the cabbagey smell wafted, and my wife and I both thought somebody around us had passed gas (to be more specific, she blamed me). Kale chips don’t have to be like that though, and these were not, so there’s no need to fear! They got nice and crispy in the oven, and the lemon juice added a nice bit of freshness and acidity while the Parmesan cheese added a salty hint to the overall flavour.
