I love kale chips, so does my husband. He hadn’t had them store bought until sometime after eating my homemade ones. After having several different brands from the store and him not really liking them, he asked why I kept buying them instead of making them when what I made was way better.
1/2 C pepitas
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 sundried tomatoes (I use the kind that are in olive oil, but let the oil drip off before adding them)
1 clove garlic
2 TBS tahini
1/2 tsp real salt
2 TBS coconut aminos
2 TBS water
1 green onion
1/8 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
3 TBS nutritional yeast (optional but certainly worth it!)
Rip the Kale into about 3 inch pieces, removing the spine. Place in a large bowl.
In a blender or food processor put the rest of the ingredients together & blend until nice and smooth.
Pour over kale pieces and work in with your hands, making sure that each piece has the cheeze covering it. Allow to sit for at least 20 minutes to “soak in”. After, just lay out on dehydrator trays and dehydrate for about 10 hours at 115 degrees.
p.s. if you taste the cheeze, who am I kidding, WHEN you taste the cheese out of the blender, it will taste a bit different than it tastes once it’s been dehydrated on the kale.
