Yummy Kale Chips


Can you believe it? I am making my own yummy kale chips.  It helped that my new dehydrator arrived this week.  During school last year, I discovered these nuggets of savouriness but found them too expensive to purchase at the health food store.

Stainless Steel Excalibur Dehydrator

 

These kale chips are my very first recipe in the dehydrator.  I am counting down the time until I can indulge in them.  Yum.

You will also find something new for my recipe presentation.  I am using an awesome app (Yumprint.com) and WordPress plugin (Recipe Card) to write my recipe.  Let me know what you think.  Yumprint allows you to store and share your recipes.

INGREDIENTS
For Cashew Cream and Green Onion Dressing
  1. 1/4 cup cashew butter
  2. 1/4 cup water
  3. couple green onions, washed and trimmed
  4. 1 tsp unrefined sea salt (Celtic or Himalayan)
For Kale Chips
  1. 1 large bunch organic kale
INSTRUCTIONS
For the dressing
  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth and a little thicker than a sauce, but not runny.
Preparing Kale Chips for dehydrator
  1. Wash, rinse and spin dry kale leaves. Remove thick stem and tear into bite-size pieces.
  2. Spread kale "chips" on cookie sheet and massage the dressing into the kale -- be sure to cover the entire leaf and right into the crevices and curls.
  3. Place the coated kale "chips" on Telfex sheets or parchment-paper-lined dehydrator trays. Put trays of chips into the dehydrator.
  4. Set dehydrator to 110-115°F and timer for 4-6 hours. Halfway through flip leaves over and continue dehydrating. Length of dehydration depends on how crispy you like your chips.
  5. Cool completely and store at room temperature in air-tight containers. These treats are so tasty they won't last long. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. When properly dehydrated and completely cooled, kale chips are good for weeks when they are stored in air-tight containers.
