many thanks to xell, my colon hydrotherapist, for her wonderful suggestions and basic recipe for kale chips. i hate kale, and can only tolerate it in small amounts if marinated and in a salad. i was very hesitant to try this idea but xell (pronounced "chell") said they're out of this world. too true. they taste like...

Recipe Directions

wash and tear up the kale into large bite-sized pieces. place into ziploc bag and pour in marinade. toss to coat thoroughly (you especially want the oil to coat, this makes them shiny and extra crunchy when ready). marinate in the fridge overnight or a few hours. dehydrate 3-5 hours until dry and crispy. they get very thoroughly dry, so don't worry about the shiny parts, its the oil. if any are still damp, you can first check after 2-3 hours and flip for the remainder of time. if they are overly dry and crispy they will tend to crumble easily. enjoy!!

many thanks to xell, my colon hydrotherapist, for her wonderful suggestions and basic recipe for kale chips. i hate kale, and can only tolerate it in small amounts if marinated and in a salad. i was very hesitant to try this idea but xell (pronounced "chell") said they're out of this world. too true. they taste like popcorn and are so crunchy, i can eat a whole head of kale while stuck in traffic. my 2-year-old niece and my own 18-month-old love their 'crunchy salad' and we have to make sure to tear it up a little or else they stuff their faces. one day i'll get a picture of the two of them, with the green powder residue all over their faces. reminiscent of childhood cheetos overdosing... long live green chips!!

LOVED them! Thank you! I wouldn't have thought that kale would taste like that.

i just got my nutritional yeast in, so i tried it that way. yum! so after washing the kale and tearing it up, then i put it all in a large bowl and drizzle olive oil and lemon juice all over, mix with my hands to coat well, then sprinkle a touch of salt and quite a bit of yeast on. massage it again to get it coated well, then dehydrate. xell is right, if you don't mix the yeast in really well then it will powder and fall off while drying.

make sure you check it after 3 hours, separate it out a bit, this will let it dry until crispy with no hidden soggy bits. delish!!!

You are too cute, Noelle! I actually tend to douse the chips in nutritional yeast, and use sunfire salt, instead of Bragg's...but your version sounds great! YUMMMMMMMMM! :P
