“Cheesy” Kale Chips

If you are unfamiliar with nutritional yeast, it’s a powder or flake – yellowish in color- that is grown from beets and then dehydrated. Despite the word ‘yeast’, it contains no gluten, but is high in protein (18 amino acids) and B-12 (just 2 teaspoons gives you your RDA). The nutty/cheesy flavor lends itself to the perfect topping for a salad, pasta, popcorn, potatoes, or just about anything! I love it on my kale chips, eggs, and on my sauteed or roasted veggies. You can find it at your local health food store.

 
 Kale Chips

  • 4-5 large kale leaves

  • Olive oil

  • Garlic powder

  • Onion powder

  • Pepper

  • Nutritional Yeast

Wash and pat dry leaves. Tear kale into 2-3″ pieces and lay on a baking sheet in a single layer. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with the seasonings. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 min. Turn off oven and keep the kale in for another 10 min. Remove from oven and enjoy. If you do not finish all the kale chips, they can be crisped back up simply by placing them in a warm oven for about 3-4 min.

And then there’s always Chocolate Kale Chips!
