Healthy Homemade Kale Chips
Ingredients you will need:
1 bunch of kale (preferably organic)
1/4 cup baking soda
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
1/8 cup Braggs liquid aminos (this adds salt flavor, so you may adjust to
1/3 cup braggs nutrional yeast flakes
- Wash kale, rip leaves from stem, and tear leaves into pieces.
I prefer larger chips, so I keep my pieces close to palm size. Use a large bowl or fill your sink with enough water to cover the kale leaves. Add the baking soda to the water and let the kale soak for 15 minutes to help remove any pesticides.
- Strain and blot the kale to remove any excess moisture left on the leaves. Place the kale in a large bowl & add the olive oil to the leaves. Hand tossing works well to evenly coat each leaf.
- In a separate bowl, combine garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Sprinkle the mixture evenly onto kale and toss evenly.
- Hand toss the nutritional yeast onto the kale. Place the prepared kale loosely on dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 135-140 degrees for 2 hours or until dry.
I usually double or triple my recipe because this delicious snack disappears quickly around my house. Other options I’ve used for seasoning are: Powdered Siracha seasoning (to taste) or organic ranch dressing mix powder. added to dry seasoning mixture.
Have fun creating and enjoy!
