Recently I posted about making Kale chips and after a few requests on how to make them I decided to make up a little blog post. We all know the struggle to find healthy snacks can be a challenge. One of my favourite snacks is chips, but with the high carb load and not always healthy ingredient, they can't be a part of my diet all the time. Kale chips are a grey alternative to the traditional potato chips. Packed full of green goodness, B vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fibre and 5 grams of protein for every 100 grams. The recipe includes Cashews, Nutritional Yeast, and healthy oils to boost the nutrition value even more. You can't go wrong with Kale chips. They are easy to make and can be stored for about a week in an air tight container.
What you will need:
1 Head of Kale
1 clove of garlic
1 Lemon Juiced
2 TBSP of Braggs liquid amino (or soy sauce)
1/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast
2 TBSP Avocado Oil
3/4 Cup Cashews
Salt to taste
1/2 TSP Turmeric
You will want to start by soaking your Cashews for an hour or more before starting. Just place them in a bowl and cover with water. Wash and cut up your Kale, set aside to dry. Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl. You should have a paste like texture. Once you Kale is dry mix the kale wight the paste. I use my hands to ensure a more even coat on each chip.
Place kale in a dehydrator for 1 hour at 145, and then drop the heat to 115 for 2-3 hours. Make sure you rotate your trays a few times so they dry even. Once they are dry you can package them or eat them right away.
