Deluxe roasted kale

Serves 50. A delicious mix of flavours and textures that should entice even the most reluctant greens eater to have a try! Vegan, Gluten Free*

* Not all soy sauces are gluten free – check your bottle if you know you are feeding celiacs etc


Kale – 6-7 large bunches, chopped into small pieces. (curly or straight)

6 cups nuts (any will do)

3 cups sesame seeds

50 pitted kalamata olives – roughly chopped if you can be bothered.

Soy sauce, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne pepper etc – adapt to suit what you’re serving it with


Heat oven to 180°C

  1. Place the kale, nuts, sesame seeds and olives in a deepish baking tray and toss together.
  2. Add some soy sauce, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne pepper etc to taste – start with about a tablespoon of soy sauce and lemon juice, a tablespoon of paprika and a teaspoon (or less) of cayenne. Give it all a good stir and adjust seasonings to taste as required – it is much easier to add more than rinse anything out!
  3. Bake for 30-50 mins until golden brown. Stir it a couple of times whilst cooking.

If cooking small quantities of it at home it can also be done in a cast iron pan with a lid instead of the oven.

This dish is really flavoursome and looks quite different so can be used to make a basic meal appear more sophisticated with very little effort!
