“Best when roasted” Kalettes
Kalettes are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed raw (washed of course) or cooked in a variety of ways; they can be roasted, sauteed or grilled – and they are "best when roasted"!
- 1 package Kalettes (300g or 454g)
- 2 tbsp Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 475°F (250°C).
- Wash Kalettes; toss with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste; Spread evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet
- Roast in lower third of oven until just tender and browned in spots, about 8-10 minutes. Serve immediately.
Good morning 🙂
I love these kaletttes so much! Wondering how to best freeze them to last throughout the winter months?
Thanks for keeping us all healthy with your wonderful produce!
Kalettes can be blanched and frozen using general instructions found at https://bcfresh.ca/freeze-veggies-for-later/
We recommend blanching Kalettes for 2 – 3 minutes, or until the green in the leaves turns a bright green. Do not go over 3 minutes.
Can we do Kalettes in our new Ninja air fryer?
It has a max temp of 400F but works like a mini convection oven.
Thanks for the question! We’ve done Kalettes recipe testing using a Gourmia 7qt Air Fryer so I suspect the temp and timing will be similar. This recipe is for the 454g bag of Kalettes.
1. Preheat air fryer to 400F – if your air fryer has a timer, set it for 14 minutes with a reminder to turn at the 7-minute mark.
2. Wash and drain BCfresh Kalettes. Add Kalettes. olive oil, salt and fresh ground pepper to a large mixing bowl, toss to coat
3. Place Kalettes in air fryer basket and shake to ensure they are evenly distributed. Insert basket in air fryer.
4. At the 7-minute mark, take out the basket and shake the Kalettes to ensure all sides get crispy.
5. Remove from air fryer and serve immediately.
How long do Kalettes last in fridge once the bag is open?
Regarding shelf life, Kalettes are fairly durable vegetables when stored in the bag or in the crisper of your fridge. The product should last more than 2 weeks (although I’ve had bags in my fridge last for 30+ days).
With every type of fresh product, we recommend consumers use their senses when inspecting their produce.
When you open the bag give it a quick sniff to see if they smell really musty. As you rinse them, look for any squishy leaves or slimy butt ends, pull off the slimy leaves and trim the butts as needed. Minor browning on the butt is nothing to worry about, but trim as necessary. You may find the odd squishy leaf alone in the package, just discard those as you rinse in your colander.
