Nacho Cheese Kale Chips

Ingredients

1 cup cashews
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup filtered water
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp chili powder
½ tsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 teaspoon pureed garlic (about 2 cloves)
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
? teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ pound stemmed curly kale (about 1 ½ large bunches)

Directions

Soak the cashews in water for 4 to 6 hours.

Rinse and drain. To make the cheese sauce, combine the cashews, carrot, water, nutritional yeast, chili powder, lemon juice, salt, garlic, onion powder, cumin, and cayenne in an Omega high-performance blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Wash and towel-dry the kale and put it in a large bowl. Toss the kale with the sauce, making sure all the sauce is clinging to the leaves.

Place the leaves on Excalibur dehydrator trays covered with a nonstick sheet. Make sure that each leaf is separated from the others and none are on top of each other. This ensures that the leaves dry quickly and evenly. Dehydrate at 105°F until completely crisp, about 12 hours or longer

  2. Carleigh says:

    Yum

  3. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I love these ideas for a healthy chip. I don’t have a dehydrator , but perhaps slow low temperature in the oven would work too.

  4. Pinned these to my gluten free eats board I pinned a dehydrated kale recipe a while back and so far it was repinned 99 times! So simple to do too.

  5. Joanne Gregory says:

    These sound great! And I have kale growing in a pot and a dehydrator in the cupboard!

  6. Julie Wood says:

    I would love to make these! I would need to get a dehydrator. I had one years ago, and made beef jerky with it. I would love to make the cucumber chips and the Sweet potato chips. What awesome recipes to have and make for summer!

  7. Sandy Cain says:

    Oh, they sound and look so good! I don’t have a dehydrator, but I’d love to get one! I’d make eggplant chips, I love them! The sweet potato chips would be number one on my list, though. I don’t have a garden, but the supermarket (or better yet, the farmer’s market) will do nicely!

  8. md Kennedy says:

    These all sound amazing! I’ve never though about having a dehydrator but veggie chips from the store are SOOO expensive I may just get one.

  9. Sarah L says:

    I’ve never had a dehydrator. Thought about getting one but never got around to it. These look yummy.

  10. Sherry Compton says:

    Creative and wonderful ideas for a healthy chip and a fun way to enjoy veggies. Get your kids…or husband…eating them. 🙂 Are certain toppings or dips better with different veggies?
