I am obsessed with kale chips! I found this recipe on Meghan Telper's website. I've made them in the oven and also in the dehydrator and these are soooo yummy and healthy too! 1 bunch makes 4 small servings or 2 large depending on the kale lover involved.. I can eat a whole bunch myself, easily!
- 1 bunch kale
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted almonds (or almond butter)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons honey (recipe calls for raw but I use regular)
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
- 1 dash cayenne
- 1. Place all marinade ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth. Add water as needed just in order to blend. Remember: you will be drying this out again later.
- 2. With your hands, mix together the kale and marinade, massaging gently.
- 3. Transfer to dehydrator rack or parchment lined baking sheet.
- 4. Stick in your dehydrator on medium-high setting (I use 130 degrees) or in your oven on its lowest temp with the oven door left slightly open.
- 5. In the dehydrator it will take about 4-5 hours for them to reach the perfect crunchiness. Drying times will vary in oven.
i just made this recipe but had to cut a lot of corners as i did not have some of the ingredients. Instead of lemon juice i used apple cider vinegar, instead of tamari i used 1/2 maggi seasoning sauce (resembles a v concentrated soy sauce) and 1/2 worcestershire sauce and it turned out DELICIOUS! I'm waiting on the chips to come out but the marinade itself made me think i can re-purpose this sauce into a satay dip or something. So good! Thanks for sharing!
I love these chips! I used Sweet Spicy Cayenne Pepper coated almonds! Instead of the salt free almonds or almond paste. I used 1/2 cup before blended. This helps your metabolism. I also used the oven. I did use Curly Kale. Thanks for posting. If you can find these almonds, just use regular and add ground cayenne pepper and stevia.
Wish I had a dehydrator....think it would work better. Some of my kale got a bit over brown, but still tasted great. I loved the marinade, and loved the joy of finding a toasted almond on the occasional chip. Thanks for sharing!
