easy “cheesy” {vegan} kale chips

28 Jun

these always disappear fast!

have you ever tried nutritional yeast?  i actually kind of love it.  a lot.  many of my vegan friends would tell me about it and i never really tried it on anything until someone suggested i put it on popcorn.  which, as you know, is totally what i do now! nutritional yeast is a great cheese substitute, as it has a creamy flavour that is almost nutty or buttery.  i find it to be amazing on kale chips. you can usually find it in the baking isle or in bulk, at most health food stores including whole foods market.

start with a bountiful and beautiful bunch of organic kale.  i opted for red this time because it looked heartier than the green.

when i am  buying something in produce that is sold by each and not by weight –  i always get the biggest and best looking one i can! 🙂

whatever, nature – you’re just so marvelously beautiful. xxoo

rinse well and chop up your kale into “chip” like pieces.  drizzle on a healthy amount of coconut oil.  start with a couple tablespoons and add more, if you need to coat the kale – you can always add, but cant’ take away — kind of my “measuring philosophy” if-you-will.  i found coconut oil to be the best oil for this recipe.  of course, you could experiment with your own combinations.  {i’ll add a couple of mine to the end of this blog.}

now smother with tons of nutritional yeast. i even add a little to the top of the pan before putting them in the oven.  mix together well in a large bowl.

toast these up in a 400 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes.   remove from heat and let cool…

then devour.  and maybe make like, at least 2 more batches.


two of my other favourite combos :

– olive oil and an all-spice blend

– shitake dressing – that’s it.
