Crispy seaweed is my all time favorite way of eating kale. It is traditionally deep fried, but I’m not really a fan of that method in general, so this recipe involves shallow frying and roasting instead. Kale is super fantastically good for you – it is loaded with powerful antioxidants as well as many vitamins including vitamin A, C and K.
To prepare the kale, cut out the middle rib and chop the rest as finely as you can.
Saute in a little vegetable oil for a few minutes, then spread it out onto a baking tray. You may prefer to do this in two batches!
Roast the kale for 5-10 minutes until it goes crispy. Drain it on kitchen paper, then tip it into a bowl. Add Chinese five spice powder, salt, and sweetener. I use xylitol – you really don’t want something that tastes too artificial for this recipe, and you don’t need much.
