I found this recipe here and it reminded me strongly of some pieces of kale I lately had topped my pizza with. Even though I had blanched the kale before, the leaves turned brown with tendency to black, burnt , paperlike, ashy… and only very few of them got really nice and crispy. Definitely not an award-winning pizza topping.
BUT IF YOU
“preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line the baking tray with parchment paper.
Remove the leaves from thick stems and tear into bite sized pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale.
Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges are brown
but not burnt”
YOU WILL GET some really delicious kale crisps!
The moment you put the first piece in your mouth it feels super crispy, salty, much lighter and thinner than a potato crisp, yumm….. then it becomes chewy (must be the healthy fibres), and if eventually you have eaten more than two or three of them, you may want to skip dinner. Promised!
