Easy Peazy “Cheesy” Chickpea and Kale Sauté – Vegan, Gluten Free and Paleo

Easy Peazy “Cheesy” Chickpea and Kale Sauté

nutritional yeast cheese dairy free paleo vegan gluten free coconut oil lemon garlic ginger fiber calcium proteinThis is my first recipe in our new house in Fountain Hills, AZ! I’m so excited. So what better way to celebrate than with some KALE! But seriously, I made this recipe because it was so super easy. Not only easy but DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN and PALEO! Plus calcium, protein and fiber.

What makes it so cheesy is the nutritional yeast. I use Bragg Nutritional Yeast. I found mine at Vitamin Shoppe but Amazon has it too. I use it to make Baked Cheesy Kale Chips too. If you don’t know about nutritional yeast, I use it as a substitute for cheesy flavor. It’s tangy like a sharp cheese and melts up pretty good. I even shake it on my popcorn.

The directions are so easy peazy. Put everything in a saute pan, saute for 5 – 10 minutes and serve warm or cold

I cooked mine for a good 10 minutes because I like my cooked kale really soft but if you still like a little crunch, 5 minutes worked good.
