“Cheesy” Raw Kale Chips

Whenever I’m having a potato chip craving I make these yummy raw vegan “Cheesy” kalechips_002-1024x682Kale Chips as a healthy alternative. They are so easy and cost so much less to make then the expensive bagged kale chips at Whole Foods that go for $8.99 a bag. Betcha can’t eat just one!
1 large bunch of  kale
1 cup cashews, (soaked 2 hours)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3-4 tablespoons
fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon agave
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
Rinse the kale and spin dry. Remove the stems and tear into bite size pieces. Let the kale air out as much as possible before coating. Blend the ingredients for the cheesy seasoning in the Vita-Mix until smooth. Transfer kale and seasoning to a large bowl and mix well using your hands to ensure the leaves are well coated. Place the kale on the dehydrator trays, I have an Excalibur Dehydrator, it’s by far the best on the market, IMO.  Dehydrate at 118 degrees overnight or until coating is dry. Slide onto mesh screens and dehydrate until totally crispy.  If you don’t have a dehydrator, place on the bottom sheet of your oven on the lowest temperature and leave the oven door slightly open to protect enzymes from being destroyed by the heat.
