My friend Christine Baker showed me a recipe for kale chips and I was skeptical. Kale is very healthy, but I never thought of it as a yummy snack. Then I tried the recipe. It was so good! My husband and I “wrestled” over the chip bag. Try them!
1 big bunch (about 7 stalks) kale
2½ dl sunflower seeds (soaked for at least 2 hours)
2½ dl water
1 red pepper
¾ dl olive oil
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp tahini
1 ¼ dl nutritional yeast flakes
¼ tsp cumin
1 tsp honey or maple syrup
1 tsp salt
Rinse the kale and remove the stems. Tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces. Blend the remaining ingredients into a smooth sauce. Pour the sauce over the kale and mix well. Place the kale on a baking sheet with parchment paper and dry at the lowest temperature in the oven. Have the oven door ajar to let out the moisture. After about 6 hours, turn the chips over. Continue drying until thoroughly dry. This may take around 24 hours.
