These dehydrated chips are super easy to make and are so delicious you’ll find yourself eating a whole kale! They also make a great snack for kids to bring to school.
1 large bunch of kale, spines removed, ripped into large pieces, washed thoroughly and drip dried (you can keep a bit of moisture on them, it helps the coating thin out a bit and makes the kale easy to coat)
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped rough
3 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp soy sauce (I like Braggs)
1/2 cup tahini
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar (again Braggs is a good one and so is Filsinger’s)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast (found in most health food stores)
Put everything into your food processor and process until smooth.
Put your kale in a large bowl (if you have a lot of kale, do it in bunches, adding a bit of the sauce to each bunch).
Pour the sauce over the kale and massage it into all the leaves until they are all coated.
Place the coated kale into your dehydrator for 4 – 6 hours until completely dried.
If you don’t have a dehydrator, place the kale in one layer, onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and place in the oven at the lowest temperature.
Kale chips are great eaten alone, but are also fantastic crumpled into soup, stir frys, beans or any other favourite dishes.
