Spicy Kale and Seed Cracker

Of late I seem to be on a kale high - perhaps it is due to the overwhelming quantities at cheap prices in the super markets right now. Or I am just craving the goodness these beautiful leaves hold. Every and anything I can put them in, it makes an entrance. Maybe I am going through a vegetable crush?

The basic recipe is just the seeds, you can add any herbs or spice you like to make it your own. They are a great little snack for when you fancy something savoury, and like crisp but healthier - filled with protein, good fibres and minerals. Gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and healthier than a bag of crisps!

The Low Down:


Manganese, Phosphorus, Copper, Magnesium, Vitamin K, Vitamin A

Iron, Selenium, Zinc, Vitamin C, Folate

These seedy, tangy, spicy, little morsels went down a treat! even my partner who turns his nose up at anything looking too healthy. Really loved these, he now has them for his lunch box.

Using the oil, coat  the baking tin or parchment wipe off excess oil. I used a glass bottom cake tin sprayed with a little oil.

Using a spatula dipped in water, spread the mixture out till level (if there are holes it will break up during baking).

Sprinkle the top with herbs or whatever you fancy as a flavoured topping.  I used Asian spicy mix and seaweed mix half and half.

Bake the mixture for about half hour, after 30 minutes turn the oven down to 140 degrees. Remove and flip on other side sprinkle this side with spice mix and bake for a further 20 minutes (check on it in between so it doesn't burn).

Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack or their might be condensation on the bottom which will cause it to be slightly soggy not crispy.


Break up or cut into small cracker sizes keep in air tight container.


DONE!!
