Crispy Kale Chips

Crispy Kale Chips
Betcha can't eat just one of these light, crispy snacks. Nutritional yeast gives them a tangy, almost cheesy flavor. If you are concerned about gluten, check to make sure the brand of nutritional yeast you use was grown on beets, not barley.
  • 1 12-oz. bunch curly kale, center
  • stems removed, each leaf torn
  • into 4 pieces (6 cups)
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 3 Tbs. nutritional yeast

1. Place kale in bowl. Rub oil, lemon juice, and salt into leaves with hands. Add nutritional yeast, and toss well.

2. Spread kale onto dehydrator trays without overlapping. Dehydrate 2 to 4 hours, or until dry and crispy. Turn off dehydrator, and cool completely.

After reading the comments from others, I don't have much hope that someone will answer my question as none of the questions below were answered. Next I looked at the list of "contact us" categories but I didn't find the right person to ask. As a result, I have decided to take a chance and ask my question here and keep my fingers crossed. We recently purchased a dehydrator along with the book: The Dehydrator Bible. The unit came with a small instructional manual that also included a few recipes as well as helpful hints. Yet, when I searched through both of them for instructions on how to make "veggie chips" ie: zucchini, taro, both regular & sweet potato chips, carrot chips, green beans and so on so I hit the Internet. After a few attempts, I found your site and the two recipes for veggie chips, thank you. I am brand new to dehydrating and could really use step-by-step instructions for a variety of vegetables that I can use for healthier snacks. Do you have any idea where I can find that or can you help me? I would sincerely appreciate hearing from someone, even if it's just to say "no." I know this is possible because we've purchased them at Sprouts and Whole Foods, but they are really expensive; so I'm hoping to make my own! Thank you for your time, Marcia

Also great when using baby spinach and brussel sprouts(take the sprouts apart use the leaves and the hearts are used for another meal)....My family has went nuts over these kale chips and now my neighbor has planted kale just for this reason. Gonna try this on other veggies.

I just made these a thought they were too salty and "lemony". I think I will make it next time with no lemon and 1/2 the salt.

What temperature setting do you use if using a dehydrator?
