In order to eat them, I need to bribe myself.

I have some greens, I get some bacon.

That is roasted kale, which is basically drowning in nutritional yeast. I could eat it everyday, and I usually do. You won’t find me eating any other vegetables though, so don’t get too excited.

It’s companion is a toasty hummus, avocado and bacon sandwich. It doesn’t get much better.

Unless you add chocolate.

    I tried making kale chips once and failed. What did I do wrong? I’m going to try nutritional yeast on it next time I have it. That sounds sooo good and cheeeeeeesy. :D

      I failed miserably many times, too. I have now perfected the recipe, to my liking at least.

      Preheat oven to 350.

      I tear up a bunch on kale and lay on a baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray (or olive oil, etc). I prefer sprayed over massaging because spraying gets every last leaf. I then douse it with nutritional yeast – probably 3-4 tablespoons worth, maybe more – until it’s totally coated. I don’t use salt or pepper because I find that the nutritional yeast is ‘salty’ enough.

      Bake for 10 minutes, flip and toss a few times, and bake for 10 mins more.

      Devour!

    Greens are good! Good job, Jess. Now a liiiiiiiiiittle more bacon would make the ratio juuuuust perfect. ;)

    Umm wow. 2 posts a day. Pretty soon I’m gonna call you Insane :) and amazing! xoxo

    Ok the cookie post. I dont even like frapp’s from Bucks. That’s the one thing I’ve always been meh. Iced coffee yes, Frapps and whipped bev’s, no. I did love DQ blizzards as a kid but i digress. The cookies look amazing!

    The kale chips with nooch. Yes. That would be a staple item around here. I just dip mary’s crackers straight into the nooch bin these days if i need to :)

    I honestly don’t much care for kale chips, but I think the nooch probably does make all the difference. I need to find some.

      It definitely does – I don’t like them without it.

    I’ve tried about 10 times to make kale chips and I always burn them. I’m sticking with my carrot fries :)
    Love avocado on sandwiches!
