Fried sage, your new favorite delicacy

sage plant

Do you like freshly-fried bacon crushed onto your salad? Honey roasted walnuts? Well, I have a new one for you. A delicious, crunchy topping for salads, soups and whatever else you like. It’s fried sage. Yes, those lovely silvery leaves in your garden. Go get some scissors, cut some and meet me in the kitchen…

  • A handful of sage without stems
  • Olive oil to coat the frying pan
  • Salt to taste

  1. In a frying pan or nonstick pan, heat olive oil to medium high heat.
  2. Toss in the sage.
  3. When sage is crispy, transfer to a plate that has been lined with a paper towel.

Use sometime today as a topping.
