|Jamaican pork, roasted sweet potatoes, wilted spinach.|
Wilting spinach is a painstaking process.
- Put spinach on plate with pork that needs to be warmed.
- Microwave said plate.
- BAZINGA: wilted spinach: add a bit of lemon juice for some zing.
Yeah. So I call it wilted spinach so I can seem fancy, much like when chef's on Chopped say things like chutney (stuff I diced and mixed together) or napoleon (dessert items I didn't know what to do with so I stacked them and put whipped cream on top).
Today I made kale chips for the first time because I was looking for a healthy snack alternative. (Don't worry: they taste a LOT better than they photograph)
I used Ellie Krieger's recipe for the most part, although I'm pretty sure her "bunch of kale" was much bigger than mine. I didn't really measure the salt, oil, or smoked paprika and simply used the amount that seemed rational for the kale that I had.
Super simple to fix, although it would have been simpler had I done it at the same time I was fixing my roasted sweet potatoes for dinner earlier in the evening, but c'est la vie.
This was also my first time using smoked paprika and it is AWESOME. I never bothered to buy it before because I figured it couldn't be much different then regular paprika, but I was pleasantly surprised at just how wrong I was. It has the flavor of chipotle, with none of the heat. I look forward to trying it on other things, probably with some sort of Mexican food on Friday.
