Just want to vent!! I live in Australia and for some reason there seems to be no such thing as collards, kale, arugula and all the other greens that appear in raw recipes.
I want to make raw wraps and kale chips!!
The only thing I can think of is buy a cabbage and use that instead? Or silverbeat? anyone know if silverbeat can be eaten raw? I never liked it cooked... tasted like a yucky watery version of spinach.
Other than that I can buy mixed baby greens or mesclun (only really good for salads) or a few different types of asian lettuce/cabbage i have no idea what to do with. I live on baby spinach and baby rocket but these are no good for wraps or chips. I have seen kale at the plant nursery so might grow some!
Can I dehydrate vegetable slices to make chips/crackers?
we have lettuce - iceberg is the most common, and also Cos (which is really yummy). I just googled lettuce types and discovered that Cos Lettuce is the Aussie word for Romaine lettuce! So I suppose I'll be using that for wraps! I wonder if the thick veiny part will crack/break when I try to roll it?
Hmm.. I've never had Kale, but I'm thinking silverbeat might be similar - It's thicker than spinach, very dark green, with a big white vein/stalk in it. Maybe I'll try it. OR maybe bok choy..
i live in tasmania, we have the the worst fruit and veg in Australia! (thats available in shops that is - tas actually grows heaps of gorgeous produce but it gets shipped to the mainland before we see it.)
I have never laid eyes on a durian. Only read about them on the internet in American forums lol.
