Ingredients

  • 200g kale, chopped and any tough stalks removed
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground star anise
  • pinch of cinnamon

For the dressing

  • 1 small orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 100g cooked chestnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp sultanas

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Put the kale in a large bowl and toss with the oil, garlic, cloves, star anise, cinnamon and plenty of seasoning. Spread the kale mixture over the prepared sheets in a single layer, then roast for 15-20 mins, tossing halfway through, until the leaves are crisp and any stalks are tender – keep a close eye on the kale, as it can catch quite quickly. Leave to cool.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk the orange zest and juice, vinegar and oil together, then stir in the chestnuts and sultanas. Toss the dressing with the kale and serve.
