This one is for you Belinda!
Kale chips absolutely rock! I can eat 1 1/2 bunches of kale in one sitting – no probs… as long as they are made into kale chips first.
Need something crunchy and tasty? I reckon these are comparable to arnotts pizza shapes in flavour – but as far as good for you – these totally out do any baked chip or biscuit out there!
These are nutrient rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins – no saturated fats at all – just pure yummy goodness!
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for 2-4 hours
1/4 cup hempseeds (ok I know they are not allowed to be eaten in Australia – but hey if you are anywhere else in the world – you can (except NZ) )
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes (soaked if using dried – if using in oil I like to rinse under warm water and towel dry to remove some of the oil)
1/2 large red capsicum, seeded and roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. filtered water
1 Tbsp. Italian herbs
1/2 Tsp. sea salt (optional)
sprinkle of chilli flakes (optional)
1 – 1 1/2 bunches of kale – remove tough stems and roughly shred (I just rip them into chunky pieces)
Too easy – just throw everything into a blender or food processor (except the kale – of course) and blend until smooth (add a few drops of water if needed).
In a huge bowl, combine together the kale and dressing massaging well with your hands 🙂 until the kale is well coated.
On a dehydrator tray place the kale chippies and dehydrate overnight until lovely and crispy crunchy…
Store in an air-tight container… if you have any left… I know they are irresistible…
Giving credit where credit is due…
Amber – it fascinates me that you would make chocolate kale chips – but hey – I am willing to give it a go! Tah again you are an amazing chef!
