Simply delicious, these nacho kale crisps will be great to share with a loved one while watching the game on Sunday – but truth be told, you will likely devour the whole lot by yourself. Packed with the deep flavors of umami, thanks to the Parmesan and the nutritional yeast flakes, you will love these crisps and so will your family. 

Note: Do not use any more olive oil other than indicated here, as you want the kale lightly (but evenly) coated and too much oil will just make them soggy. Don’t fret if there are any smaller burnt bits, those are sometimes the best ones!

  • Combine the garlic powder, nutritional yeast flakes and only two teaspoons of Parmesan in a small bowl. Mix well, then scatter the mixture over the kale and use clean hands to toss it all together ensuring the kale pieces are evenly coated.

  • Spread out on a large roasting tray allowing enough space between the kale to avoid overcrowding. Place the tray in the oven for 4-5 minutes, rotating the tray halfway through to ensure even cooking.
