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.
  4. store in a ziplock bag

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!!!
