Last week I visited my sister Theresa. She always makes the most wonderful treats, whether they are sweet or savory they are ALWAYS wonderful! She had made Cheesy Kale Chips, and let me tell you they are beyond amazing! She sent me on my way with many treasures, one being a baggie filled with chips to share with Rich. When I got home I asked him to try 1….he liked it and tried another…… I closed up the baggie and put it on the kitchen counter. The next day when I went to eat a few, I couldn’t find the baggie so I asked him if he knew where they went…he answered…”Yeah, I ate them.” I am very happy that he likes them because I’ll be switching them in for his regular Tater Chips 🙂 However, I am now craving more Yummy Cheesy Kale Chips!!
I am so excited that I will have my very own Excalibur Dehydrator in the next couple of weeks…I love tax time 🙂 My home will then be overflowing with all kinds of raw treats…both savory and sweet!

Raw Cheesy Kale Chips
2 packages Kale
4 red peppers
2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 tbsp pink salt
juice of three limes or one big lemon
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tb soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 tsp tobasco smoked chipotle sauce
Rip the kale into pieces..while taking off the stem. I use a huge stainless steel bowl. Put the pepper in the bottom of the blender first with the lime or lemon juice, salt, soy sauce, chipotle and then the nuts and seeds and nutritional yeast. Blend on high until a nice smooth paste. Taste it and think about eating the whole thing straight…this is where I think OMG I could eat this like a soup, or a dip for veggies. Now pour it over the kale leaves in the big bowl and massage it in…this helps break up the fibers. Spread on dehydrator sheets…use teflex. Turn on to 110 degrees, usually for 24 hours. I start in the afternoon and then next morning turn the chips over..you have to taste them as they dry..chewy warm cheesy goodness. You will want to eat them all then too!
I hope you will put these on your list of things to try…not only are they good, but they are good for you!
*WARNING* Once you make these Cheesy Kale Chips…it’s all over….you will definitely become ADDICTED!!
Until next post Love, Health and Peace
