When we first started eating raw, W had been asking for crunchy - well, we now have crunchy, and depending on the recipe, we even have cheezy!
After the first batch of collard green chips (see pic below), I wanted to revisit this technique using kale. I much prefer the kale.
I prefer not to use nutritional yeast, after researching it or if I do use it, it's in very small quantities. These chips are freakin' fabulous! I made two different batches of kale. They are both great, but my personal preference is the Cheezy Red Pepper chips (see pic above). Try them out, and let me know what you think...
Cheezy Red Pepper Kale Chips
2 -3 bunches kale (curly works best)
1 red or orange bell pepper, chopped
1 cup cashews (soaked a few hours. You can also use sunflower seeds)
juice of 1lime (or lemon)
1 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp chili powder, or to taste
1/4 tsp ground kelp powder (optional)
Remove center stem, tearing kale into large pieces (they shrink).
Rinse and drain cashews and process with red bell pepper, lime juice, onion powder, salt and chili seasoning, until smooth.
Massage the mixture onto each kale leaf, coating the front and back, and place on non-stick dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 2 hours.
Transfer chips onto mesh tray. Dehydrate for 4-6 hours at 110 degrees (or overnight), until crunchy. Don't be surprised if you eat half of them before they are done.
Here is another variation to kale chips:
1/4 cup tahini
1.5 Tbsp Nama Shoyu
1/2 lemon, juiced
dash of cayenne (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds, ground
Tear kale leaves into bite-sized pieces after removing center stem.
In a bowl, mix all ingredients except kale.
Use filtered water to thin mixture, as needed.
Massage mixture onto front and back of each leaf and place on a covered dehydrator tray at 110 degrees for 2 hours.
Transfer each chip onto a mesh dehydrator tray and dehydrate 4-6 hours, depending on crispiness. Store in airtight container.
