Kale chips are a fantastic snack and a great way to get everyone eating more greens. Kale chips can be baked in your oven or dehydrated. You can easily vary the flavour by following these simple directions:
1. If you’re using an oven preheat to 350 degrees.
2. Wash and dry your kale. Tear each leaf into bite size pieces and add to a large bowl.
3. Toss in a dressing to lightly coat. Lay the kale pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet or dehydrator tray.
4. In your oven, bake for 7 minutes and then flip the chips and back for another 6 minutes. Let the kale chips cool for about 15 minutes. They should be crisp and crunchy. In a dehydrator bake at 115 degrees for 3-4 hours untl a crisp texture is acheived.
You can make a simple version by tossing the chips in your favourite salad dressing or a simple combination of sea salt, apple cider vinegar and a touch of olive oil.

Cheesy Kale Chips   

  • about 3 heads of green kale, ripped into pieces, stalks removed
  • 2 cups cashew butter
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp minced cilantro
Place kale pieces into a very large bowl. Throw the rest of the ingredients into a blender. Bake as directed in the basic kale chips recipe. The more dressing you add the more you’ll have to bake the chips to get the desired texture. But keep your eye on them. Kale dust is not as tasty!
