Kale chips with nutritional yeast flakes.

Remember when kale chips were all the rage last year on blogs infinitely purdier than mine? So, this post feels about 1 year too late. I didn't get into kale chips for eons, due to my worry that kale chips = dog shit, or something like it. Well, it turns out they're pretty stellar. Crispy, easy to make, easily adaptable, not bad at all. It wasn't until my best friend and I started getting together to cook at least once a week, that she mentioned we should try making some. I won't get into the details about how many batches we made that day. Don't worry about it.

Kale chips are high in fibre, iron, and Vitamin A, C, and K. Don't be a knuckledragger and pass on these, because antioxidants are the cat's ass.

1 bunch kale, washed and patted dry
1-2 tbsp mild oil
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 tsp pink salt
Seasoning (curry powder, coriander, chili powder, etc)

Preheat your oven to 250F.

Rip your kale into bite size pieces - about 1x1" or slightly larger. Remove the ribs, because they're bitter as hell. Throw in a bowl and add in your oil, mixing with your hands. Next, throw in your nutritional yeast flakes, salt, and any other seasoning.

Lay your kale out on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip each piece about, and bake for another 7-9 minutes. Allow to cool a wee bit.
