Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that is popular among vegetarians as a source of protein and vitamins, particularly B-complex vitamins. Another perk is the cheesy flavor it imparts while keeping the dish pareve!

Kale Chips

1 Place kale in a large bowl, drizzle with oil to coat and toss.
2 Sprinkle with nutritional yeast, enough to make a light layer. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. toss well, gently massaging the kale so that the oil coats both sides.
3 Lay the kale out on a sheet tray (or two if needed) in a single layer.
4 Bake for 20 minutes in a 275 degree oven. test the kale to see if it’s dried out. if necessary, return to the oven for another 5 minutes, or until kale is crispy and not at all wilted.
