“Cheesy” Pizza Kale Chips
All of these ingredients can be purchased at a grocery store like Natures Fare. I used all organic produce.
I always have to make a big batch of these kale chips because they seem to go so fast in my house. I have incorporated sun-dried tomatoes into this recipe to give it a pizza flavour. One bite and you’l be hooked, these are easy to make and easy to eat! I usually use 3-4 heads of kale and then double all the ingredients for the ‘dressing’. The reason I like to dehydrate these instead of baking them in a high heat oven is because I like to eat as much raw food as I can, and leaving these kale chips still technically raw (because of the low low heat) is way more beneficial to our bodies!
- 2-3 heads of kale, depending how big the head is
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup nutritional yeast
- juice of 2 lemons, or lime
- 1/2 cup soaked raw cashews (soak 4hrs min, overnight is best)
- 1/2 an onion
- 1/2 sweet red pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cayenne (or omit if you don’t like any spice)
- 3-4 sundreid tomatoe slices (works out to be about 1/8 cup)
- Wash and dry kale, then rip into small pieces. Blend all ingredients(except the kale) in a high speed blender
- Pour this dressing over the kale and massage it in making sure each piece has some yummy dressing on it
- Dip anything into this left over dressing stuck in your blender blade and eat it- because it just tastes so good!
- Place the kale pieces on dehydrator sheet and run at 110 degrees for about 9 hours, I usually do it overnight.
Note: if you don’t have a dehydrator then you can do it in the oven. You’ll set it to your lowest temperature, open the door just a crack and bake for about half the time. They are done when they are crispy. I have not tried baking these kale chips, but if you want to you could try at 300 degrees for about 30 min.
Note #2: They smell kinda weird while they are dehydrating – just wanted to warn you! They will taste way way better than they smell at this stage! Don’t worry!
