Cheezy Kale Chips
Recipe adapted from Dehydrator Review
2 bunches of kale
1 cup of raw cashews
1 red pepper*
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp cayenne
Soak your cashews for a couple hours (I had soaked mine overnight). Toss in a food processor with the remaining ingredients (except the kale, silly). Wash the kale and dry it with a paper towel, or a salad spinner (which I have yet to own, no big deal if you don't have one). Remove kale stems and rip leaves in to bite-sized pieces. Place in a large bowl and cover with cheezy sauce. Toss kale and sauce with a large spoon or spatula, or your hands, until evenly coated. Eat the entire bowl. No, don't do it. Place kale leaves on a few dehydrating trays and dehydrate at 115° for 4 hours or so. I think mine needed around 6 hours to get really crisp, each dehydrator is different!
Alternatively, you could throw them leaves onto a baking sheet and bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes, watching them closely so they don't burn.
* I only had green bell pepper in hand and they still tasted great!
Even Santiago liked them. Well, he looked at them, at least once, during our Superbowl party. Maybe.
