Kale Chips

Notchos
I've been busy lately eating kale chips. I'm so in love with dehydrated kale these days. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE just plain old raw kale marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt. But, dehydrated kale chips are great for crunch and of course a quick salt fix.

Kale:

2 heads of kale, washed and dried (remove middle hard stem if desire)
3 Tbls olive oil
1 tsp sea salt

Sauce:

1.5 red bell pepper
1 Tbls nutritional yeast
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 jalapeno
1 cups soaked cashews
1 Tbls sea salt {or less or to taste}

First, coat the kale olive oil and sea salt {you can skip this step if you'd like, it's not necessary} 

Second, mix the "sauce" ingredients in a vitamix until SUPER creamy.

Third, pour the sauce over the kale {coat the kale, but leave some of it in blobs}.

Last, dehydrate for 12-18 hours on a mesh tray {you can double the mesh trays if you think that the mixture is too watery/messy. Or until SUPER duper crunch {not soft}

ENJOY - the chips should look like the photo when finished.
