WOW these are good! I’ve made a ton of kale chips in the past but these are my new favorite!! I used my dehydrator to make these but you can use a regular cookie sheet lined with parchment paper if you don’t have one.
Kool Ranch Kale Chips
1 cup raw cashews, soaked in hot water for 1 hour to soften
-1 bunch of kale – I used lacinato/dinosaur kale but it would be good with any kind
-1/8 – 1/4 cup water
-1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
-1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
-1 tsp dried parsley
-1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1/4 tsp dried dill
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
-1/4 tsp sea salt
-1/4 red onion, chopped
-paprika and extra sea salt for pre-dehydration sprinkling
1.) Blend (great in a VitaMix!) the cashews, water and seasonings in a blender until smooth. Place mixture in the bottom of a large mixing bowl and add the chopped onions.
2.) Wash the kale and remove the stems. Tear off chip-sized pieces of the kale and add to the bowl. Using your hands, massage the mixture onto the kale bites so that each piece is well coated.
3.) Transfer the kale to your dehydrator or parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with paprika and additional sea salt.
4.) Dehydrate for 5-8 hours at 115 degrees – my dehydrator took about 5 hours
** If you use the oven method, spread kale chips on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven until crisp, on the lowest setting with the door slightly ajar.
