I feel like a clean eating, hipster posting this but I can assure you  110 percent this isn’t the case, anyone who knows me will probably be laughing at the sheer notion of this statement!

Again feel free to have a few LOLs, but I am clearly no nutritionist either – however, I believe Kale is super high in vitamin C, antioxidants and helps lower cholesterol – get me!Forget all the above -I  just love the taste of it. If I were to offer a load of cooked kale up to the kids they would literally laugh in my face but baked in the oven they go made for it – devouring a whole tray full in one sitting.

It’s so easy to make – just make sure you have your oven on low 160 degrees centigrade and keep checking regularly after 10 mins.

The only thing that is a bit of a faff is de – stalking the leaves, this must be done though.

1 bag kale

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 

3 tablespoons olive oil 

5 heaped tablespoon nutritional yeast 

Large pinch of salt

1 tablespoon sesame seeds 

1 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce

Wash your kale and then detach the leaves from the stalk 

Place in a large ziplock bag with the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and Tamari

Seal the bag or it will go all over the kitchen like yours truly has done many times!

Schmush around until all the liquid has coated everything 

Place on a large baking tray with parchment paper making sure no leaves are clumped on top of each other – you may need 2 trays 

Once the kale is spread out evenly sprinkle the nutritional yeast and sesame seeds all over 

Place in the oven for 10 mins. After this mix the kale around a bit so every part gets cooked evenly.

I would say it probably takes 18 mins in my oven to go crispy and slightly browned 

Let it cool for a little while and then enjoy!
