Into the Wild - Mac & Cheese Kale Crisps

Updated: Mar 19, 2019

For this recipe head out into your backyard or the nearby park or a neighbours untended lot. Lambs Quarter grows in abundance. Since it's hard to kill & delicious to eat, here's one way to make the best of it.


Harvest leaves. I pulled my roots out before I realized what I had in my hand. Oops. Pull off leaves. Rinse very well. Spin dry. I ended up with two cups of lightly packed leaves. I prefer my crisps to be a bit 'chewy' so I don't pat dry. If you prefer crispy pat the leaves dry with paper towel or a clean tea towel.


Drizzle with olive oil - you need less than you think! I used less than a 1/2 tsp. Just enough to lightly coat the leaves. Sprinkle with Epicure's Mac & Cheese powder. I used 2-3 Tbsp (I'm a cheese girl)! For chewy/crispy crisps, place 1/3 of the bowl onto Epicures Multipurpose tray avoiding the Center nub. Microwave 1.5 mins.


They firm up a bit as they sit. I peeled it off to cool on a plate while the next tray cooked. For lighter crispy crisps, similar to kale chips, place the patted dry leaves much thinner on the tray than pictured. Do about 6 trays. Start with 1 min cook time. Keep an eye on them so they don't overcook! Seriously. Overcooked dry leaves can spark & you'll get a scorched taste.
