The sun has finally come out today (after a short snow storm) and flowers are blooming…
I finally get kale chips. They are delicious, crunchy and more-ish, just like deep fried potato chips… but they are just dried kale. If made in a dehydrator they are also raw and full of lovely enzymes
Wash a bag of kale (or large bunch picked from garden, roll on summer), tear up and remove any tough stems. Massage it with a teaspoon of olive oil and a little seasalt. I used olive oil with a spoon of soy sauce and some pepper instead. It was intensely peppery, the flavours condense, so be sparing Dehydrate for an hour or two until crisp and gorgeous. Alternatively you can bake them in an oven for 10-15 minutes, obviously they will not be raw but still delicious and healthy compared to crisps.
Stockli dehydrator linked above as that is the one we own, but spotted this Andrew James one for a fraction of the price which looks similar. Also worth noting that the Vitamix now has competition from this high power blender, half the price with good reviews…
The wild garlic seems to be early this year
In other chocolate news, Vegan Easter has been updated, further proof that it is now Spring and the time of hearts, eggs, bunnies and hummingbirds. *ignores horizontal blizzard outside window* *dreams happily on*
There’s a new soya milk brand coming to Tesco mid January: Vive Soy. We were sent a sample of the Cappuccino flavour to try which Davie enjoyed heated up at work on a very snowy day. It was very sweet, containing both sugar and sweeteners. The unflavoured varieties do not contain sweeteners and the unsweetened type has no sugar at all
These quantities make a huge one! Blend up 3 boxes of Silken Tofu with a teaspoon of turmeric, 2 tablespoons of Gram Flour and Black Salt (Kala Namak) to taste. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F. Grease a baking dish and place it in the oven too (frittata will cook more quickly). Wash, slice and fry up a box of mushrooms and a chopped red pepper (we used yellow but red would look better) in a little olive oil. Add a tin of sweetcorn to the mix until well heated through. Mix it all together (in pan if big enough, or straight into heated dish) and bake for at least half an hour or until it seems set through. Muchly yum
