This will become your go-to kale chip recipe. Nutritional yeast gives the crisped leaves a cheesy flavor along with a hit of protein, iron, and vitamin B 12. To give them a spicy kick, sprinkle with your favorite seasoning blend just before baking.

YIELD: SERVES 4

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 12-oz. bunch curly kale, tough stems removed and torn into large pieces
⅓ cup nutritional yeast

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Rub oil into kale until well coated and shiny. Add nutritional yeast, and toss to coat. Divide kale between 2 baking sheets. Bake 5 minutes, or until leaves look shrunken. Flip and move kale leaves with tongs. Bake 5 to 10 minutes more, or until kale is crispy. Sprinkle with salt, if desired.
