Can kale chips be considered addictive?
With this recipe, you’ll see what I mean!
This was actually inspired by a visit to my boyfriend’s parents house. His dad graciously purchased a bag of kale chips from the store, knowing my propensity for all things green. I think they were Rhythm brand? Anyway, they were MUCH tastier than either of us had expected and we promptly finished off the entire bag!
I knew there must be an easy way to recreate crave-able kale chips at home. Here are a few secrets to getting them down.
How to make the best kale chips
- Lacinato kale will yield the stiffest crunch, but feel free to use whatever kind you have on hand. The big leaves are more fun in my opinion! The stems won’t get too crispy though, so just eat around them.
- Make sure the leaves are not touching each other on the sheet. This is tricky, but it really allows for complete crisping.
Benefits of nutritional yeast
Is there anything nutritional yeast can’t do? Here it lends the ideal “cheesy” flavor, along with a hefty boost of protein: 9 grams per serving!
