Cheesy Kale Crisps

Cheesy kale 6

Savoury cheesy kale crisps packed with vitamin B12

Kale is the ‘queen of greens’. It is crammed full of nutrients: high in iron, fibre, vitamin K (so good for bone health & blood clotting), antioxidants (so good for cancer prevention), omega-3, (so help fight against arthritis, asthma), vitamin A (so great for vision, skin & preventing macular degeneration, lung & oral cancers), vitamin C (so great for the immune system, cartilage & joint flexibility) & calcium (so help prevent bone loss & osteoporosis).

Elsewhere in this blog I have listed a recipe for chilli kale crisps. I especially love cheese and onion crisps & so had to come up with a healthy alternative! The cheesy flavour is imparted by vegan nutritional yeast.

nutritional-yeast

Nutritional yeast are a vegan substitute for cheese and packed with vitamin B12

What is it?

Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast. It is very different to Brewer’s yeast & not widely available even in health food chains, but readily available from Amazon.

Nutritional yeast is full of B vitamins, especially vitamin B12, which is absent from most plant foods, making nutritional yeast a great supplement to take if you are vegan. It is rich in folic acid, selenium, zinc & protein whilst being free from sugars & preservatives. It is also low calorie. It has a cheesy nutty savoury ‘umami’ flavour & it can be used in cheesy sauces, soups, sauces, bakes. See Amazon for rave reviews!

Cheesy kale3

Serves: 2-4

Preparation time: 10 mins

Baking time: 15-20mins

Ingredients:

300g Kale Cheesy kale 6

3 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

4 tbsp water

1tbsp tamari or soya sauce

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

1.5 tsp garlic powder

1.5 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp tahini or peanut butter

 

Method:

Wash the kale & remove any tough stalks. I leave my kale to dry on tea towels (sometimes even overnight!).

Mix all the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl to form a paste.

Massage this paste into the kale leaves to ensure an even coating.

Taste & adjust if required.

Spread kale onto lined baking sheets so they do not overlap and bake in a oven at 180ºC for 15-20mins until crisp.

Cool & store in an airtight container.

Top tip: If you have any packets of silica gel supplied free with nori seaweed sheets or crackers, pop these in with the kale crisps to stop them from going soggy.
