I just love getting seaweed with my Chinese takeaway. It’s sweet, it’s salty, it’s SO GOOD. I couldn’t believe it when I tried to make some crispy kale in my air fryer and managed to recreate the exact same food – same taste, same texture, same everything!
I don’t know if the picture does it justice but honestly this is life changing. You have to try this if you have an air fryer and you love Chinese food. If you don’t have an air fryer, I have no idea how it would turn out in an oven, but you could give it a go on a baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid sticking, I just don’t think the results would be as crisp.
- 1/2 bag kale (yes really, it shrinks!)
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- Soft brown sugar
Take the kale and remove any stalks, this is really important. You just want the green fluffy leaves. Get them all together on a chopping board and go over them with a knife so they’re finely chopped. Take the sesame oil and salt and rub all over, they really only need a tiny bit of oil or they will go soggy. Pop in the air fryer for 2-3 minutes on 180 degrees and voila! Toss them in the brown sugar and serve.
