Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.

Cut potatoes and peeled shallots in half and add to a large bowl. Add coconut oil, rosemary stems, shallots, paprika, garlic powder, turmeric, sea salt and black pepper. Toss to coat well.

Transfer to baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and transfer to a large bowl to cool slightly for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile add kale leaves to baking sheet. Season with coconut oil and sea salt.

Place in oven for 10 minutes until crispy.

Step 4

To assemble add the potatoes and shallots to a bowl. Drizzle with dressing and top with crispy kale leaves. Enjoy as a main or a side dish.
