The God of dishes made from greens. This is a dish that sounds weird but tastes amazing. I don’t know what alchemy occurs but I like that it does.
All you need are washed kale, olive oil and salt. Yep. That’s It. And children of all ages and sizes and sensibilities will eat this. Even my son who does not like kale. At All. But he loves it as crisps…
Pick the kale off the stalk. It should come off in bite sized pieces but if it doesn’t, tear it into such. Place in a bowl and drizzle over 1/2 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt. I am a purist here and insist you use proper maldon salt. Toss together and then spread onto a large baking sheet. You want it in a single layer or it won’t work properly.
Place in a hot (200 degree) oven for 10-15 mins. You want some of the kale bright green and other bits turning brown and translucent.
Decant into a serving bowl and HIDE at least half of it. Trust me. It tastes so good that you’ll want to eat more than you should in one sitting. This will lead to kale loathing, and other possible and less desirable side effects.
Delicious as a healthy snack, it’s also yummy with mashed potatoes and fried eggs. And chilli sauce.
