Nutrition Nugget: Vegans are often lacking in Vitamin B-12 because this nutrient is primarily found in animal products. One tip for vegans is to sprinkle some nutritional yeast, which contains vitamin B-12, on the kale before baking to help boost their vitamin B-12 intake. Nutritional yeast is a great vegan substitute for Parmesan cheese.
Chef’s Note: There are so many fun spices you can add to kale to kick up the flavor. The recipe we have provided is basic and probably more kid-friendly. However, you could split the batch and have a more adult version with spices like garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and/or onion powder.
Make Ahead: Kale chips can be made 1 day ahead and stored in a plastic container. Re-crisp them at 275 degrees F or just eat them at room temperature.
Kid-Friendly: Kale chips are not just for dinner. They are a nutritious snack for your kids so keep them around the house for those late afternoon nibbles!
Simplify It: No time to cut and clean? No problem. Buy a pre-washed bag of kale leaves and skip step 2 of the recipe.
