Low-fat Kale Chips….aka Thursday night cabbage

Although why anyone would pass up an opportunity to eat one cup of nuts in one sitting is beyond me….Here is a low fat version of the recently posted Cheesey Kale Chips.

  • 200g curly kale, thick stems removed
  • 3T extra virgin Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, ground with
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt*

*I would possibly use 1/8t from now on.

Work the oil through all the leaves with clean hands; sprinkle the seasoning all over the leaves and mix again. Dehydrate till crispy, or bake until crispy. 200g of curly kale became about 80g of chips.

Though I have never done baked versions, these certainly should work better in the oven than the cashew coated ones, as they are less soggy to begin with, and will not kind of braise in the liquid; watch them carefully as they turn from crispy to burned very quickly,by all accounts.

These are a lot more delicious than I expected. I really like them, though still prefer the creamy-nut version. Obviously, out of the two, these win for cost and fat intake. Maybe these can be Thursday night kale Chips.
