Cheesy Kale Chips

"An addictive alternative made with nutritional yeast. Who would have thought that leafy green chips loaded with nutrients could be so addictive? Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast; it's not alive and has a slightly cheesy flavor which many vegans like to use as a cheese substitute. It can be found at most health food stores and some big-chain grocery stores."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the kale in a large bowl and sprinkle with the nutritional yeast and salt. Stir with your hands to coat kale.
  3. Spread kale onto baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until kale begins to get slightly crisp; rotate racks and flip the chips, and continue baking until completely crisp, 45 to 60 minutes total. Make sure to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn; if you notice certain chips ready much sooner than others, take them out.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The best way to bake these is by using a food dehydrator, where you just lay them on the sheets and wait until they are nice and crispy, and they are raw, meaning that none of the nutrients are lost. This method will take several hours for them to be ready, but the taste will be superior.

These are excellent! Thanks for delicious way to enjoy kale. If you don't have nutritional yeast use parmesan.

This was insanely fantastic and addicting. I made 5 batches - it was all gone within 24 hours, am now having to make more. Thank goodness there is lots of free kale in the garden. This was en...
