Students researched the many health benefits associated with Kale. We then looked at how it is one of a very few veggies that can actually be grown year round in Vancouver. With all these benefits, we tried to make the tough chewing veg actually edible. Thus, put a little olive oil, lemon zest, sea salt and cayenne pepper for those heat seekers and roast them. Voila, you have a much better choice to those bagged chips in the vending machine. Approval rate was 50/50 in the class but with some groups overcooking theirs, I think we can get that number a little higher ;).
