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.

How to Make Crispy Seaweed from Kale

To prepare the kale, cut out the middle rib and chop the rest as finely as you can. Sauté in a little vegetable oil for a few minutes, then add Chinese five spice powder, salt, and sweetener. I recommend something like Lakanto or granular Swerve – you really don't want something that tastes too artificial for this recipe, and you don't need much. Stir well to mix.

Spread the kale out onto a baking tray lined with a silicone mat. Roast for 5-10 minutes until it goes crispy.

Serve this kale seaweed as part of an appetizer course or as a side dish to an Asian meal.Crispy Seaweed - a fun low carb way to eat KALE! Try this crispy seaweed recipe! It's a fun #lowcarb way to eat #kale ! Click To Tweet
