    Kale crisps

    This ever-so-trendy vegetable has finally made its way to SA’s shores and is becoming the new super veg! A lovely
    substitute for spinach, it’s now available at specialist fruit and veg shops, or Food Lover’s Market, all year round. Kale is very high in beta-carotene, vitamin K and vitamin C, and is rich in calcium and fibre. A versatile, leafy green, it can be enjoyed in salads or winter warmers like soups or stews. Our crispy kale recipe can be enjoyed as a snack or part of canapés in place of starchy chips – it’s a great way to reduce your carb intake.
