Recipe: Garlic Avocado Snack (1-2 Mins)

In my household, we are considered “healthy”. Actually, I’m the only one that isn’t too crazy about being healthy. I would still prefer McDonald’s over the task of cooking dinner…

So, when I finally had my first taste of avocado a few weeks ago… holy moly, I am in love! I don’t know why I never had avocados before nor do I understand why people would waste a perfectly food avocado on their face.

I’m not the cook in this household and in the relationship. As much of a princess I sound, I order out or get my food cooked for me (hurray for finding a man that could cook, eh?).

But, I managed to prove some good use in the kitchen. I’ve been cooking my favourite avocado snack and if you don’t like avocados… then I don’t even know you!

What you need:
1 avocado
1 small clove of garlic
1 pan

1. Cut your avocado and peel them. Dice them into small cubes.

2. Set aside your diced avocados. Grab your garlic clove and dice into small pieces.

3. Set your pan on your stove to low. No need to add oil or anything. Toss the avocado and garlic in.

4. Stir them around gentle for about a minute or so. You will start smelling the avocado and garlic really soon.

5. Enjoy!

The garlic isn’t a strong taste when you eat it but you can definitely taste something different with your avocado instead of the usual taste.

Snack Attack: 15 minutes kale chips recipe!

One of my new year resolutions is to learn how to cook – yes, it’s sad to admit that I’m a 20 years old “adult” that doesn’t know how to cook much.

But, better late than never! And what’s a perfect way to learn how to cook by starting off with simple dishes?



For all those looking for a healthy snack, I recommend kale chips. They take about 15 minutes (or less!) to make, super affordable and simple! For all those who don’t like kale or haven’t tried kale, I still recommend kale chips because they’re based on you season them! I never had kale before but the chips were amazing. People that said they don’t like kale usually enjoys kale chips too!

To start off, you’ll need:
– a bunch of kale
– olive oil
– salt
– optional: seasoning of your choice

Step 1:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wash the kale and then rip them into bite-sized pieces; then lay them out to dry.

It’s best to make sure the veggies are completely dry. Seasoning may have a hard time sticking to the greens if there’s still moisture.

 
Step 2:
Once your kale is dry (I ended up patting out the left over water with a paper towel), throw them into a bowl and mix with olive oil, salt and your choice of seasoning. Adjust amount according to how much kale you have and your taste in seasoning.

Olive oil, salt, black pepper;
Seasoned and everything! I don’t have a baking sheet (well… my parents lost it) so I’m using an oven-safe plate!

Step 3:
Put into your oven and let it bake for about 15 minutes or until they’re crispy!
*Time depends on the amount of kale on your plate/baking sheet.

Don’t mind what’s upstairs. I was also cooking my dinner :3

End results:

I put mines in for 20 minutes so a majority of them were burnt 🙁 I didn’t use much kale so I should have decreased the time but nonetheless, the ones that weren’t burnt were super delicious and crispy! When I finished the plate, I just wanted to make more!
Derpina loves it when I’m making kale chips because that means she gets to eat the left over kale stems.
