CRAVING POTATO CHIPS or CHEEZIES? TRY KALE CHIPS!
I love kale chips!! I haven’t met a person that doesn’t. I got my recipe for kale chips from this video from the Renegade Health Show. I love this show and follow it. Here you can view how kale chips are made. You will need a dehydrator for these, if you don’t have one – I encourage you to get one because you can make some amazing crackers, breads, burgers and cookies!!!. Even a cheaper one will do to start. Time to get off the gluten and wheat and
We have a garden and planted kale so have a lot of it right now. Also you can get a TON of it at the Farmers Markets which are everywhere right now – please go to them and support local farmers who grow the most delicious LOCAL foods!!
Check out the video on how to make Kale Chips:
My recipe for Kale Chips is:
I got the recipe from them and have used it.
- Bunch of kale
- 1/2 C Tahini (Red Star Nutritional Yeast – can buy in bulk section of health food product store)
- 1/4 C Braggs/Tamari or Nama Shoyu
- 3-4 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
- 1/2 – 1 lemon
- Water as needed
- Sunflower and/or sesame seeds to top
If you don’t have a high speed blender or good blender to use, you can mix the sauce by hand. I did it that way.
As you mix the sauce, taste it. Add to taste. If you think it needs more lemon – add more. If you want it thicker or a bit cheezier add more nutritional yeast or more tahini.
This can make a great dressing to by adding a bit of olive oil and adjusting the ingredients so sauce is thinner. Experiment and taste. Start making a small batch of sauce or dressing and then when you get the mix you like – make a larger batch. That is how I do it. Trust your taste buds!!!
