The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Vegan Kale Miso Chips

Allotment gardening is many things. It’s a chance to hit the fresh air, get some exercise and chill out.

It’s also a chance to grow stuff to eat. When we started we grew things that were very logical. Potatoes, tomatoes, beans etc.

But over time we decided to target our crops very specifically. We grew courgette flowers a specific personal delicacy. We grew purple foods cos I love the colour. We grew broad beans and parsnips that are less easy to get in the shops.

This year we targeted another tasty treat.

Kale.

It’s the latest superfood, much celebrated by the Jamies, Nigellas and celebrity chefs.

We had it once in a vegetarian restaurant.

It was divine.

So today’s the day when I picked our first crop.

I used this recipe. In part because we’ve got a dehydrator but there are plenty of oven recipes too. The other reason was we had all but one of the ingredients.

Result!

These ingredients for the coating didn’t look so great. but I wasn’t disappointed.

Mind you. One important tip. Make sure you wash the kale really carefully.
That’d be the kale snail!!!!

    Your kale looks really good and healthy, but seems you have been sharing some of it! So do the resulting chips have a really strong taste? I used to cook Kale all the time but them somehow forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder, I’ll bet it is full of iron?

      I think it’s cavelo Nero but I could be wrong. Suffice to say that’s what I ‘thought’ I was growing : )

      It’s delicious and very flavorful. And you can make it in the oven too. I think I’m going to mix a jar full of the paste and use it like that.

    Yay! Something more to try with my dehydrator. I’ve saved the recipe and will most likely adapt it to ingredients I have on hand. Thanks for sharing it.
