Sauteed Kale with savory nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper is a healthy vegan side dish and so easy to make!




Prep the kale:

Saute Kale: Heat oil or water in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet or wok over medium-low heat. Add kale and saute for 3 – 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add seasoning: Add the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper, continue to cook until kale is wilted and turns bright dark green, about 4 – 5 minutes (shown below).

Serves 3 – 4

Store: Leftovers can be stored in covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


For convenience, use pre-cut packaged kale.

This recipe can easily be doubled, however, I recommend cooking in batches as the kale will fill up the pan until they are cooked down.
