In Food Recipes By Rachel Forrest / September 2013

This nibble consists of chili scented crispy kale plus bite-size pieces of pumpkin-sunflower seed granola; the pairing is an usual and addictive salty-sweet combo. Louis says the inspiration initially came from the Marcona almonds served at many tapas restaurants in Spain. The dish evolved to include local oats and kale; turning the oats and seeds into chunk-style granola, with a side of fried kale, gave a new England twist to the crunch offered by those almonds.
