Very tasty way to get your kids to eat their dark green veggies (adults too!) Followed the recipe except for 2 things. 1. I left out the water because the consistency was fine without it and 2. left out the agave - I don't need any more sweetness in my diet. lol Making the recipe that way I felt that there was quite a bit of cheese left over so I'll reduce the recipe next time (or buy 2 bunches of Kale) and I'll also cut the lemon juice back a bit. The flavor of lemon stood out above everything else. Regardless I will be making this delicious treat again! Thanks
This is an excellent way to prepare kale! I love the kale: baked, stewed or sauteed. I don't have a dehydrator so I go with the oven method--and I confess I don't wait more than 90 minutes before diving in. I cook these at about 300 degrees. Mine don't get crispy but sort of leathery. I've tried other recipes/methods of making them but they were not as good as this method. The cashew-based rub really makes the difference. Plus I add lots of red-pepper flakes and/or hot sauce because the spicy heat goes well with that earthy, nutty kale flavor. If you are thinking about it, stop it! Stop considering and get thee to the kitchen to make these. I think you'll like 'em!
These got mixed reviews at home. The kids weren't big fans, but DH loved them (and he hates kale). I think they are pretty good, but don''t think I will make them too often. I'm just not a big fan of nutritional yeast. Overall I think they are pretty good and I will probably make them occasionally.
