    Serves: 2 as a snack


    ½ tsp Bart sea salt and seaweed
    ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika
    pinch cayenne pepper
    150g pentland brig kale
    1½ tbsp olive oil

    2. Rinse and drain the kale, patting dry with kitchen paper. Remove the tough central stalks and tear the leaves into 4-5cm pieces. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; add the oil and the spice mixture. Mix well, making sure every leaf is coated.

    3. Spread the kale out on a large baking tray (it needs space to crisp up so use 2 trays if necessary). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the leaves are crisp, but not overly coloured, turning with tongs halfway through. Leave to cool and serve with a chilled beer, if liked.
