Kale Chips with Sesame Seasoning

Kale Chips with Sesame Seasoning

 

My 3yo daughter can detect a single molecule of chlorophyll in her food and reject a meal because of it, so you can imagine my surprise when I made some kale chips one day & she pretty much inhaled the entire batch! Kids, hey?¬† ūüôĄ¬† ūüėÜ

Luckily for her (and me) it’s kale season in these parts, so we can get beautiful bunches of organically-grown kale from the local Farmers’ Market.¬† Yes, ideally we’d grow our own, but until we get some more garden beds set up, we’ll enjoy the fruits……and vegetables……of someone else’s labour.

I tend to keep things pretty simple when making kale chips – olive oil, vinegar & salt – but tonight I remembered the tin of Pickld Sesame Seasoning that I recently bought.¬† It tastes fantastic on steamed & roast veggies, with a nice little crunch, so I thought it would be a good thing to try on the kale chips.¬† Boy, when I’m right, I’m right!¬† Sooooooooooo gooooooooooood!!!

There are several varieties in the Pickld range, all hand-blended using family recipes created over 9 generations of vegetarians.¬† They all have a base of activated lentils (hence the name ‘Pickld’) and superfoods to support your digestive health and add a boost of nutrients.

 

 

All the varieties except the chilli blend come with a little recipe book, but here’s how I created these super-tasty Sesame Kale Chips:

  1. Preheat oven to 125C (250F) (fan-only setting if you have one) & line a large tray with non-stick baking paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Strip kale leaves off the central stem (cut with a knife or use your hands) & cut/tear the leaves into chip-sized pieces.¬† They’ll shrink a bit in the oven, so don’t make them really small.
  3. Place kale leaves on the tray & sprinkle with other ingredients.¬† Mix well using clean hands, massaging the kale leaves until they’re fully covered & looking shiny.
  4. Place in the oven for approx 30 mins, or until dry & crispy, ensuring to stir the leaves a few times to avoid burning.¬†(If you have a dehydrator, you can use that instead.¬† Follow manufacturer’s instructions.)
  5. Remove from the oven & sprinkle with a little more of the Pickld Sesame Seasoning…..because yum!!!
  6. Eat, then wish you’d made extra because those ones disappeared in under 2 minutes!

Magic Mud: More than just a naturally awesome hand cleaner

Magic Mud: More than just a naturally awesome hand cleaner

I’ve been experimenting with the¬†Magic Mud¬†Hand Cleaner (not the charcoal toothpaste of the same name) to see what it can clean besides hands.

I love polishing metal to a shine, so this was so satisfying! I’ve done half of each surface so I can see the difference.

Magic Mud Results | www.unitywellness.com.au

The chrome on the sandwich press has been returned to a mirror-like surface, hubby’s mokka pot no longer has the deposit from the gas burner on its base, the base of the saucepan is brighter, but it was the ring from the burner on our stovetop that I really wanted to clean. They get dirty so easily, but being aluminium, they can’t be cleaned with steel wool or any other harsh abrasives. I think I’ve found the solution!

 

What is this Magic Mud?

 

Magic Mud is a unique natural hand cleaner containing soft zeolite and soft silica minerals found in Central North New Zealand. These are obtained through geothermic processes.

Soft Zeolite has a negatively-charged cage-like structure, magnetically pulling contaminants away from the skin or other surface, while the fine grains help scrub and deodorise, leaving your hands feeling soft and smelling great.

Tough enough to clean grease, oil and paint as well as amazing at getting rid of the most pungent smells.

Smelly hands after fishing or preparing seafood

Greasy hands from fixing the car

Painted hands from DIY adventures

Kids covered in paint from artistic pursuits

Dirty hands, possibly with a touch of manure, after a day in the garden

It’s equally effective in cleaning grease, grime & smells from hard surfaces, as seen in the photos.¬† It will even clean the pipes all the way back to nature!

You can watch this video to see how well it cleans a steel barbeque:

Now I just need to polish the other half of everything I cleaned earlier¬† ūüėÜ

If you’d like to try some yourself, you can get it HERE.¬† There’s even a 30 day money-back guarantee if you don’t love it (but I reckon you will).
