Crispy Roasted Kalettes


  • 6-10 oz. Kalettes, rinsed and ends trimmed
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the kalettes with the extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Massage the kalettes with the oil (this helps release flavour and makes the leaves crispier!)
  3. Transfer the kalettes into a large oven safe pan. Cast iron is the best to use for this recipe. If you do not have a cast iron pan, use a regular fry pan for the stove top portion of cooking and transfer kalettes to a sheet pan for the baking portion.
  4. Spread kalettes out into a single layer in the pan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Use a spoon to toss the kalettes a few times during this cooking time.
  5. Add the freshly minced garlic to the pan and toss kalettes to coat.
  6. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes, flip the kalettes after 5 minutes to ensure the whole vegetable gets crispy.
  7. Place on a serving dish and serve immediately.
