How to Make Kale Chips with Vegan Cheese Flavor

Kale is a super-food: high in fiber, lots of anti-oxidants, a source of many vitamins and flavanoids! On its own it can be bitter and tough, but it makes a lean mean and green chip!
Dice up a whole red pepper, add it and two tablespoons of lemon juice to your blender.
Add 1 cup of raw unsalted cashews to the red pepper paste, blend again
Add two tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast and blend (super high in B vitamins)
I like to add a lil heat! This is a Korean chilli flake but you could use anything
add 1/2 tsp of Maple Syrup blend it all until smooooooooth
now give that Kale a nice massage! Rub your paste into the greens
This works best in a dehydrator, I got mine at Value Village for $19.99!
Spread the leaves out evenly on your trays so that they can thoroughly dry out
Depending on your dehydrator this could take 3-4 hours, BUT you can use your oven too! It just takes patience and you have to keep a pretty close eye on them so they don't burn. Set your oven as low as it can go and check them every 10 minutes of so to make sure they aren't turning brown, flip them over too.  The nice thing about a dehydrator is that you can set it and just walk away! Hunt online for deals, craigslist can be a gold mine!
