Roasted Vegetables with Kale “Chips”

Print

Roasted root vegetables are a staple on my dinner table at this time of year. But at one of my recent dinner parties, I had tons of kale from the farmers market and came up with the idea of tossing the kale on top of the roasted vegetables. It was a total hit!

The crispy kale “chips” jazzed up the roasted vegetables. I promise this is another easy, lazy girl’s side dish winner! It’s also a great make-ahead dish as it keeps well for days in the refrigerator. So make a big batch and enjoy all week!

Further Food Commentary:

Not only is this recipe easy and delicious but highly nutritious! Naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol, both standard and sweet potatoes are a great source of dietary fiber, and sweet potatoes are chock full of beta carotene, the precursor for vitamin A, a potent antioxidant and immune system booster. Vitamin C is also immune supportive, as well as a heart-healthy nutrient that’s abundant in peppers and kale. Need one more reason? This recipe boasts a whopping 12% of your iron needs for the day. Load up on this super side dish and you just might keep the winter sniffles away!
