Nutty Kale Chips

Ingredients1 large bunch of  kale 1 cup almonds or cashews, (soaked 2 hours) 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped 3-4 tbsps fresh squeezed lemon juice 1 tbsp maple syrup 2 tbsps nutritional yeast 1/4 tsp onion powder 1/4 tsp turmeric powder 1/2 tsp sea salt

Method 1. 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. 2. Blend the ingredients for the cheesy seasoning in the Vita-Mix until smooth. 3. Transfer kale and seasoning to a large bowl and mix well using your hands to ensure the leaves are well coated. 4. Place the kale on the dehydrator trays.  Dehydrate at 118 degrees overnight or until coating is dry. Slide onto mesh screens and dehydrate until totally crispy.

TIP for keeping Kale Chips Crunchy. Take a small fabric bag, sachets for jewelry or aromatics work well, and fill it with uncooked rice.  Place the it in an airtight glass container with a lid and seal up the kale chips. The rice soaks up any extra moisture in the container, keeping your kale chips crunchy for days!
