- 7oz or 200g kale
- 1/3 cup or 60g cashews
- 6 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
Preheat the oven to 150C / 300F fan oven.
Wash the kale, remove the stems and pat it dry with a kitchen towel ensuring most of the water is absorbed.
Tear it in bite size pieces and place it in a large salad bowl.
Place the cashews, 4 tbsp nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a good processor or blender and blend to a fine powder.
Massage the kale with the olive oil until it’s all well coated. Add the powder mix and continue tossing until all the leaves are well coated with the powder.
Place the kale on a baking tray, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle an extra 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast for extra flavor.
Bake for 10 minutes and take it out of the oven, tossing all the leaves, so they cook evenly.
Bake for a further 10-12 minutes until the kale is crispy.
Let it cool down, and enjoy!
