Kalettes are a fairly new vegetable - its a hybrid of Brussels sprouts and kale. The result is a small, frilly bite sized kale-like thing. Very tasty and easy to prepare.

This is the simplest way to cook them - just with a drizzle of oil and sweet soy sauce. They come out sweet, salty, sticky and crispy. You can add them at the end of a stir-fry or in a warm salad or a side dish for your Sunday roast.

 

Ingredients

200g Kalettes

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp sweet soy sauce

 

Method

Rinse and drain the kalettes to remove any trapped bits of mud or grit. Transfer them to a large baking sheet and drizzle over the oil and soy sauce. Toss them in the sauces to get them all coated and then pop them in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for 5-10 minutes (depending on how crispy you want them)

 

Notes:

If you don't have sweet soy sauce, just use normal soy. Won't be stocky and sweet but will still taste great!

Try adding other combos - olive oil and smoke paprika, maybe try a dash of sesame oil with the olive oil, throw in some seasme seeds or chilli flakes.
