Autumn in Frankfurt and Kale Chips!

Kale, beautiful kale. In the United States it is available year round and you can get nacho kale chips at Trader Joe’s anytime. I took this beautiful veggie for granted until I came to Germany and realized that most vegetables are truly seasonal in Europe and kale is exclusively an autumn veggie.

So, this weekend when I stopped by the Saturday market at Konstablerwache and saw Grünkohl advertised at my favourite organic veggie stand I was over the moon.

Today, I come to you with a simple recipe for kale chips and some glimpses of life in late September in Frankfurt- spoilers, its gorgeous!

Kale Chips are so easy to make this hardly counts as a recipe but here are the steps to making a healthy, autumnal snack.

First- trim the stems off the kale and cut into nice chop sized pieces.
Toss them in olive oil and sea salt and whatever seasonings you like- I use cayenne and onion powder.

Bake at 300f or 150 c for 8-10 minutes. Check at 8 minutes for crispness and go up from there- then enjoy!


Perfect with pear cider and Gilmore Girls.



So, now that you know how to make these here are some of the shots I took of the market at Konsti, and a cheeky shot of my outfit.
