“Cheezy” Garlic Kale Chips

“Cheezy” Garlic Kale Chips

Baked Garlic Kale Chips
Serves 1
Compulsive snack chip eaters, take note. You season these things right, and they are fantastic to just stick a bowl in front of your face and pig out. And since it's kale, the only thing you have to watch is the salt.

Ingredients
  1. One medium bunch of green kale (the standard kind...not the lacinto)
  2. 1/4 cup olive oil
  3. 1 tbsp or more onion powder
  4. 1 tbsp garlic powder
  5. 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  6. 1 tsp garlic salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Wash/dry the kale, remove stalks below the leaves, and chop into 1 1/2" pieces. Place into a mixing bowl, along with the olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast. Toss. Lay pieces onto a standard baking sheet.
  2. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then flip kale pieces over and put back in for another 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with garlic salt.
Notes
  1. Another popular method of preparing kale chips is to use a food dehydrator, which helps retain the nutrients better than baking them.
  2. Also, don't be afraid to play with the seasoning amounts according to your own taste. Nutritional yeast is an acquired taste. But once you dig it, it helps add a savory element. Plus, it's a great source of protein, folic acid, and vitamin B12. You can usually find it in the bulk or baking/spice aisles of your grocery store.
