Kale Crisps

Preparation time: 

Kale crisps are delicious, but bet's be honest, they can be a little pricey. Here is a simple and easy way to make your own, with a very modest price tag.

The trick is getting the moisture and heat level correct. If your kale is in any way wet, it will begin to wilt, so make sure it's bone dry. Don't be tempted to hasten the cooking process and turn up the oven. This will only leave you with charred, bitter crisps — keep it low, slow and gentle.

A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.

Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.

Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!
