Author Notes: When traveling with 6 children on the road, my kids like to munch along the way. Chips are their favorite so I decided to bring a healthier alternative "chip" on the trip. Even the kids who don't like kale in other recipes, LOVE these kale chips.Andrea Taylor

Serves 6

  • 1 bunch kale, washed, large stems removed, torn into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1 cup cashews, (soaked 2 hours & drained)
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded & chopped
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Place kale in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Massage the kale until they are all coated.
  2. Put remaining ingredients into a blender or vitamix and Blend until smooth. . Pour mixture all over the kale and massage again to cover the leaves
  3. Lay coated kale leaves in a single layer in a dehydrator. Dehydrate at 105 for 12 hours or overnight, until coating is dry and kale is crispy.

These were awesome, and I'll be making them again. Andrea, great suggestion about the sunflower seeds and I'll try that, too!

I have also made these with soaked sunflower seeds instead of nuts and it turned out great!!!
