Spicy Collard Crisps

Collard greens have an inherent “bite”. Here their spiciness is amped up when they are tossed with ground peanuts, cayenne and garlic powder. Kale crisps, long the vegan favorite, have a contender with this snack food.

Collard Green Crisps with Ground Peanuts

1 bunch collard greens
garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1/2 cup peanuts

1. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. Spray large baking sheet with vegetable oil.

3. Clean, de-stem and chop the collard greens into large squares.

4. In a large mixing bowl, toss the greens with the sunflower oil.

5. Chop peanuts finely. They should be almost granular but not a paste.

6. Sprinkle peanuts, chili pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss again.

7. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Stir mixture at mid-point. When leaves start to crisp and brown they are done.
