BE A LITTLE CHEESY… Our take on “cheesy” kale chips
Everyone knows that “cheesy” kale chips are the best snack since the reinvention of popcorn, but they are stonkingly expensive. So why not make them yourself?
1 bunch of kale
1 cup cashews, preferably soaked
1 red bell pepper
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Rinse the kale and spin dry. Remove the stems and tear into bite size pieces and put to one side. Blend the remaining ingredients for the ‘cheesy’ seasoning (it’s all in the nutritional yeast!) in your blender until smooth. Transfer the kale into a large bowl and pour the sauce over it. Mix well using your hands to ensure the leaves are well coated. Place the kale on the dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 70 degrees for 10 hours, or until crunchy..
If using an oven, preheat it to 120ºC. Do all the steps mentioned above, right until you put the kale chips into the dehydrator (obvi). Instead – pop them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for around 30 minutes or until crispy.
