Kale Chips – Sweet Cheesy Chips, Basil & Garlic Chips

Kale is so great to make into chips. Kale is a great source of fiber and antioxidants, and it’s considered a super food since it’s one of the deep dark leafy greens. Kale is addicting too! I love it in salads, smoothies, juiced, and of course – chips!

I love the cheesy kale chips that you can buy through the Raw Food World online store. Created by Alive and Radiant Foods – these chips are the BOM! I would keep buying them, but I was going through a bag in a day…it gets kind of pricey at times. Anyway, I decided to come up with my own version, and I think I’ve done a pretty good job. Try them out for yourself. Also, I came up with a basil one too. Enjoy!

SWEET CHEESY KALE CHIPS

Ingredients:
1 1/2 – 2 red bell peppers (seeded, stemmed and chopped)
1 cup soaked cashews (soak for at least an hour)
1 big red vine tomato (stemmed and chopped)
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ACV (apple cider vinegar-optional)
1 1/2 tsp. sea salt or to taste
1 T. nutritional yeast (a little more depending upon how big the kale leaves are)
drizzle agave to taste
1 huge bunch of curly kale (stemmed, and torn into big bite-size pieces)

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients except for the kale into a food processor. Blend until creamy adding a little water as needed to get a nice smooth, and creamy consistency (not too thick and not too thin). Place kale into a big bag or bowl, pour sauce over kale and massage into leaves real well. Let marinate for about a half hour. Place kale pieces into dehydrator and let dehydrate for about 8-12 hours until crispy. Store in airtight container for several days. Very yummo!!! This is a big hit with the non-raw foodies too! 🙂

BASIL & GARLIC KALE CHIPS
Ingredients:
1/4 cup fresh minced garlic
1 cup fresh basil chopped fine
1/8 to 1/4 cup EVOO
sea salt to taste
1 huge bunch curly kale (stemmed and torn into bite-size pieces)

Preparation:
Place kale in a bowl or bag. Add all ingredients and massage into kale leaves real well. Let marinate for an hour or so. Place kale leaves into dehydrator for about 8-12 hours until crisp. These may be a bit oily, but very yummy. They go great with salads. Store in airtight container for a couple of days. Enjoy!
