Kale yeah!

I’ve made kale chips before, but never of the cheesy variety. So with two bunches of kale in the fridge and plenty of nooch in the pantry, I decided what the kale? Let’s do this.

I followed the fabulous recipe from Pride and Vegudice, however I didn’t have a red bell pepper on hand so I used a ripe tomato instead. I don’t know if the sauce is supposed to be this thick after blending, but this is what mine looked like before massaging and roasting took place:

This is what the final product looked like out of the oven.

These were amazing! My mouth is watering just thinking about them. A crispy, cheesy snack that’s actually *gasp* good for me?

Why thank you Ryan Gosling, thank you. I will use this to make more cheesy kale.

In other kale-yeah news, I was pleasantly surprised to be nominated for the inspiring blogger award by the Veggiewitch and the Liebster award from the Vegan Kat. Thank you!!

    This recipe for kale chips is THE best! I’ve made it so many times and every time I am shocked at how good it is! I must confess…that sometimes I eat some of the kale before it goes in the oven. Bad me!

    I’ve either used a red or green bell pepper when It make these and the sauce is really thick before you spread it out over the kale. Did these taste tomatoes? I can never taste the bell pepper, but I’m just wondering if you’d be able to taste the tomato.

      I didn’t taste the tomatoes much at all. When I was perusing the recipe I didn’t think the bell pepper would add much flavor either which was why I thought subbing the tomato would work and it did. I think it just adds more moisture and maybe a teensy bit of veggie flavor.

    The best kale chips are definitely the kind covered in nooch, if you ask me! These look so good… I’m too impatient to make decent chips, so I usually just end up chowing down on noochy raw kale salad instead.

    I love making Kale chips but never tried it with different flavors. Now I’m very intrigued with adding cheese. Does it make it less crunchy? I’ve always had issues with the texture of my Kale chips, maybe it’s the oven temp I’m using.
