Kale Chips

Lacinato Kale Chips
What can I say?  Simply irresistable! 
1 bunch kale   (I prefer Lacinato, but any variety works)
Olive oil
Salt (Real Salt)

Preheat oven to 300º.  Rinse and dry kale leaves.  Strip leaf from the stem and toss the leaves into a big bowl.  Compost the stems or feed to chickens.  Drizzle with olive oil.  It doesn’t take much.  Add a sprinkle of salt – again    not too much. Massage leaves and place in single layer on baking sheet.  Bake 20 minutes. 
You can also make them in a dehydrator, but I havn't tried it yet.  I'm not sure I could wait that long :-)

Baked Fish with Quinoa & Winter Veggies

Baked Fish with Quinoa & Winter Veggies

Baked Tilapia with Quinoa, Potatoes, and Yams
Gotta love one pot meals! 

Coconut oil spray
 ½ medium onion thinly sliced

1 ½ c. quinoa, rinsed

2 ¼ c. veggie broth or water

4  fish fillets (4-6 oz.) (Frozen Tilapia or Wild Alaskan Salmon)

Organic No-Salt Seasoning (from Costco) or herbs of your choice 

Preheat oven to 450º.  Spray the inside of pot and lid of a covered baking dish – either a cast-iron Dutch oven or a Pyrex baking dish with oven-safe cover.   (I use a 12 inch diameter cast-iron Dutch Oven).

Scatter sliced onions on bottom of pot.  Add the quinoa and pour in the liquid.  Stir to settle the quinoa evenly.  Place fish on top and season with No-Salt Seasoning (or herbs of your choice).

Add one or a variety of diced potatoes, yams, and butternut squash. 

Cover and bake for 50 minutes.
