Crispy Spinach ‘Chips’

Remember when kale became the new craze and kale chips were made in abundance? Well, if you want to try something different, why not make spinach chips!
Simply line a baking tray with tinfoil, scatter with baby spinach leaves, sprinkle with salt and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes on 180 degrees C. Optional: to make them tastier, drizzle very lightly with olive oil.

The Underrated Snack

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the most underrated snack of them all?

Anyone who knows me will know that I have a few key favourite food items that I frequently purchase (ahem peppers, grapes, etc), and one of these is frozen peas! Frozen peas are super underrated regardless of whether they’re supermarket basics or petit pois; cheap, fresh, nutritious and delicious!
So, next time you’re craving a nibble, whack some peas into a bowl and either microwave them or boil them up quickly for a satisfying snack!
