Behold the Mighty Kale Chip!

This recipe idea came from the Plant-Based Health newsletter I received via email today. If you've never visited the Plant-Based Health website, please go give it a look. Katherine, who runs the site, is a sweet vegan gal from right here in Texas. Sign up for her newsletter too! It's totally free and she always sends out great recipes. I met her when I took a Cancer Project class at Spiral Diner a year or so ago. That was the impetus that turned me veg! If you ever have the chance to take a Cancer Project class, do it. You'll learn a lot, and you'll sample a ton of great food. It's so much fun!

Give these a chips a try. They take mere minutes to make and are super-healthy for you. Can't beat that! Not even with a kale chip.

1 bunch kale, rinsed and dried, then torn into chip-sized pieces. Leave out stalks.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Toss all ingredients into a large bowl and stir until leaves are evenly coated. I used a big spatula to stir.
  • Spread leaves apart on a large ungreased cookie sheet and place in oven.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes, until desired crispness is acquired, watching closely not to burn.
  • Enjoy!
