Kale is not my favorite vegetable. Not sure why, just don’t care for it. So, when I heard people talking about Kale Chips, and saw packages of them in the stores, I didn’t even them. They did not appeal to me one single bit.
Then one day a friend gave me a bunch of kale and since I did not know what else to do with it, I decided to give Kale Chips a try. I think it was the nutritional yeast and salt that sounded good. Anyway, I fell in love with my Kale Chips. Now I take them to potlucks, in the car on the go, or munch away at my desk.
Now I like Kale! I tried doing the same with carrots, beets and other veggies. Good!
Toss in about 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1/4 to 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, and a tsp of salt.
Place on teflex tray and dehydrate for about 4 hours. You can also place them on a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven at a very low temperature for a couple hours. Toss now and then if needed.
It is amazing how they shrink and change color. Makes you wonder if this is what happens to our cells when we don’t keep ourselves hydrated.
