Washed and ready to be torn
Cheezy Kale Chips
Take 1 head of Kale and rinse it well. Tear or chop off the long hard stems (but save them for juicing!) and rip the leafs into "chip size" pieces. Place them in a large bowl and add this:
1-2 Tbs Braggs (depending on how salty you like them)
Juice of 1 whole lemon
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
Massage this into each and every Kale leaf letting them soak up the marinade for at least 5 min.
Place them onto dehydrator trays trying not to overlap them too much.
That bunch you saw filled 3 trays
Dehydrate at 115 for 4 hours.
Since I have this weird feeling about plugging my dehydrator in and not using all the trays (energy wasting!) I whipped up a quick batch of my Raw Crackers and put those in too!
No, you do not need a fancy pants dehydrator to make these, but they do taste better and retain many of their nutritional qualities if you use one. You can make them in a regular oven a lot quicker though. Just preheat the oven to 350 and cook about 10-15 minutes until crispy.
I am not kidding...they are delicious and addicting. Today, my 88 year old Grandma chowed down on them...I so wish I got a picture. She took them away from my 4 year old!!!
Happy Kale Krunching!
