I poured the olive oil into a little bowl and flicked the oil on the leaves and tossed them with my fingers (like gently gelling or moussing curly, wet hair!). I was trying to distribute evenly and not end up with all the oil in one place! It worked well.....I ground some sea salt on top of the leaves spread out on the parchment lined trays. I sprinkled a bit of Simply Organics Chipotle on some of them....
They were pronounced GOOD and that they tasted like popcorn. The last of them were forgotten in the oven and burned. =( Those tasted like....you guessed it...burnt popcorn! Oh well, we got tired of babysitting them! So the hardest part of the project is getting them done to a "T" and not burning them!
|These are the burnt ones...|
Next time we'll try a dehydrated recipe. It's not good to eat a lot of cruciferous veg raw. They are goitrogenic*...they block iodine uptake to the thyroid. Incidentally, I recently read that almonds are also goitrogenic...we toast ours after soaking, skinning and drying them....they taste better and are more digestible, too!
