Smoked Nacho Cheese Kale Chips!!
Brace yourself, These are addictive. I love keeping kale chips around the house because I am a grazer and snack enthusiast! I could not keep these at my restaurant as they would FLY off the shelf! These are a great treat for ANYONE and I feel confident slapping a ‘Taste Guarantee’ sticker on these bad boys! Even you picky eaters will LOVE and your children will have found a love of Kale.
I have rules for my raw recipes.
#1 Use as minimal amount of ingredients as possible. I like to stick to the 5 ingredients or less rule….. It doesnt ALWAYS work :)
#2 Kid approved. If my recipes can be kid approved… I feel like I have won the lottery. I like sophisticated flavors BUT… I am HUGE with child nutrition outreach.
#3 They must be simple with easy to follow directions and made with common ingredients. My goal is to make REAL food for REAL people. Everyday, busy people like you and I! So here they are.
I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
- Dehydrator or oven
- 1/4 cup Raw Tahini
- 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
- 5 cloves Garlic
- 1 cup chopped Red Onion
- 2 small Red Bell Peppers
- 1 Jalapeno (use only 1/2 the seeds)
- 2 cups Raw Cashews (soaked 5 minutes)
- 1/2 Tsp Cayenne
- 1/2 Tsp Smoke Paprika
- Dash of pink salt
- 1/4 cup Water if needed
Toss all ingredients in a blender (putting liquids and high water content ingredients first) and blend. If you do not have a high speed blender, blend approx 5 times! This mixture will cover approx 2 to 3 bunches of Kale.
Break the Kale into bite sized pieces and massage Cheeze through out for 2 minutes. Deydrate at 118 for 24 hours. I use every tray in my 9 tray Excalibur. If using a oven, heat at lowest setting possible and bake until crispy! Enjoy :)
