I have a bit of an issue with kale chips that you buy at the store. They are yummy, I’ll give them that, but they can cost up to $7 for just a few ounces. You can get the same flavor using natural ingredients like shallots and cashews. And if you’re on a candida cleanse or just don’t like yeast in your diet, this recipe is perfect for you.
- 1 large bunch of curly kale, stems removed
- 1 cup dry raw cashews or dry raw sunflower seeds
- 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed
- 1/2 a large shallot, roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- Mustard seed
- Chipotle pepper
Add nuts or seeds, bell pepper, shallot, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and water to a Vitamix blender. Blend until creamy. Using your hands, massage the mixture into the kale. Transfer coated kale to an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a 200-degree oven for about 30 minutes or until crispy. Or place the kale on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate overnight at 115 degrees.
