(Un)Cheesy Kale Chips

DSC_0040

These are a snack that does not last around my house… especially when people are over.

INGREDIENTS
2 bunches of kale
1/4 cup olive oil
4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
3 Tablespoons raw soy sauce
1 teaspoon sea salt
1) Wash the kale and remove the bottom stems. Shred the kale into large pieces about twice the size you would want your chips to be. Feel free to include the middle stem in your chips as long as they aren’t too thick otherwise they will be chewy.

2) In a small bowl mix well the oil, yeast, soy sauce and salt.

3) Pour the mix over the kale – here comes the fun part… get your hands right in there and massage the wet mixture over the kale. You need to use your hands to make sure to fully cover the chips.

4) Spread the kale over your dehydrator trays so that they are touching but not overlapping.

5) Dehydrate at 118 for 1 hr. Reduce heat to 105 and continue dehydrating for another 1.5-2.5 hrs depending on how crispy you want your chips.

**Alternatively you can use your oven. Turn it up to 350 degrees and spread the chips on a baking sheet so that the pieces are not touching. Do not take your eyes off the oven. After about 5-8 mins, flip the kale. Roast another 5-8 mins and they are done. It is VERY easy to burn them so it is worth repeating… Do not take your eyes off the oven!

YIELD: 6 dehydrator trays
