Delicious Kale Chips

A member brought these treats to the Member Open House and I have thought of their deliciousness since.  Thankfully she brought me her recipe, so here it is!

  • Kale, washed and ripped into smaller, chip-sized pieces
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Olive Oil
  • Your choice of spices-I like garlic, ginger, or fresh basil
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Wash and break kale into chip-sized pieces.
  2. Mix around 4 T. of olive oil with the spices/herbs, salt, and pepper.  Then, add enough nutritional yeast to make the mixture crumbly but not overly oily.  Make sure you do not have too much olive oil or the chips will turn out soggy.  If your mixture is too oily, just add more nutritional yeast.  
  3. Dredge kale through the mixture and use fingers to spread mixture around kale pieces.  At this point, if the mixture is too crumbly you can add more oil.  I spread the mixture on kale until it is gone.
  4. Place kale in dehydrator at 135 degrees or in the oven at the lowest temperature possible.  It takes a few hours, just check the kale every once and a while and see if it is crunchy.
  5. Store in airtight containers and ENJOY!  Remember: if it doesn't turn out the first time, you can adjust your recipe the next time.
