Poor kale has had a bad rep. It can be bitter and, well, let’s be honest – it’s kale. But once you try it prepared this way, it will convert you. Crunchy and partially charred, it’s a fabulous side-dish. Carefully measure the olive oil that you add on the kale and mix/coat it well using your hands in a large bowl ensuring each leaf is evenly coated before spreading out and roasting in the oven. A sprinkling of Pink Himalayan Salt, grated Parmesan or finely grated lemon zest are all great ways to finish it – but I love it with salt. Happy crunching!
