Grass doesn’t always need to taste like grass!
Kale is considered one of the most nutrition-dense foods, it is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein and calcium.
I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not the taste bud-friendliest member of the cabbage family, but here is how I get my daughter to eat 1 or 2 whole kale bunches at a time, while I also give it a boost of B-vitamins and protein by simply adding nutritional yeast.
1 bunch of kale
1-2 tbsp of olive oil or melted coconut oil
Salt to taste
Nutritional yeast (optional)*
A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
- Preheat over to 380 F
- Break the kale leaves into small pieces and remove the stems
- Mix in enough olive oil to lightly coat all leaves, sprinkle a little bit of salt and cayenne pepper.
- Set in a cookie sheet on a single layer and bake for 20 minutes or until crispy, removing the chips as they start to get brown .
- Sprinkle nutritional yeast and enjoy .
*if you eat dairy, you can substitute nutritional yeast for grated parmesan cheese
