  • 200g curly kale or cavolo nero
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • sprinkle of salt
  • seasonings of your choice (optional)
  • Add 1⁄2 teaspoon of a spice or a combination of spices of your choice with the salt, such as paprika, cumin or coriander. You can also add some finely grated lemon zest (paprika and lemon zest are added in the photo).

“Don’t be tempted to add more oil as too much
and the kale won’t crisp up.”

What to do

  1. Heat the oven to 150C/gas mark 2. Strip the kale
    from the thick, woody stems. Wash the kale and dry
    thoroughly as it will crisp up better if it is dry.
  2. Place in a large bowl tearing any larger leaves into bite-
    sized pieces. Add the olive oil and massage into the
  3. leaves. Spread in a single layer onto a baking sheet (or 2) taking care not to overcrowd the tray.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, give them a stir
    and then bake for another 10 minutes or so until crisp
    but still green. The baking time depends on your oven
    so keep checking and stirring.
  5. Toss the leaves with a little salt.
