Crispy Broccoli Chips

February 14, 2011

Author Notes: In Buenos Aires, broccoli heads comes with a bunch of leaves attached to it- my first time coming into contact with these leaves. I hate to see such nutritional thick leafy greens go to waste. The quickest recipe is to roast it until crispy. Easy and yummy. A great snack.

*The brown sugar helps with the crispiness of the leaves as well as adding that slight sweetness.

Makes: 1 cup


  • 2 cups broccoli leaves, torn from stems into bite-size (can substitute with any other dark greens)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1 pinch brown sugar
  • 1 pinch of wasabi powder (optional)
