I have been trying to love kale but, until today, our relationship has been quite rocky. This near-perfect veggie just doesn’t have a flavor that hides in smoothies as well as spinach. In all fairness, I really haven’t given kale a chance. I haven’t tried it in any of my favorite soup recipes and I haven’t put it in my salad. So, what have I done with kale, you may be asking. I threw a handful in my smoothie and thought it tasted awful. That’s it!
I came across this recipe for “Cheesy” Kale on The Earth Diet website a couple of weeks ago and thought I would give kale another chance. I am really glad I did!
I started with a bunch of kale, removed the leaves from the stem, rinsed it, and dried it. I sprayed a large cookie sheet with olive oil, laid out the kale, and lightly sprayed olive oil on the kale. Then, I sprinkled the kale with Premier pink sea salt and Bragg”s nutritional yeast and baked it in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes. It came out light, crispy, salty, and cheesy!
This was a delicious and healthy snack and it went very well with my iced mint tea. I will definitely be making this recipe again!
