Nacho "Cheese" Kale Chips (Dairy, Gluten and MSG Free)

I could go on and on about the benefits of kale.  It really is a super food, one of the best vegetables out there.  This dark green leafy vegetable is high in fibre, vitamin A and calcium.   It has one of the highest antioxidant levels, making it an excellent fighter against cancer.  Kale also works as a detoxifier, helping the body eliminate what it doesn't need.   
Used my Nacho "Cheese" Sauce/Dip to make these kale chips. I could not stop eating them, they did not last long.  They can be made in a dehydrator, keeping them raw or you could bake them in your oven.

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 5-6 cups kale chopped in bite size pieces

  • Directions

    1. If using oven, preheat to 200 F.
    2. In a blender add all ingrients except the kale.  Puree until smooth.
    3. Place kale in bowl and pour sauce over.
    4. Using hands mx teh kale and sauce until kale is fully coated.
    5. Place on baking sheet or deydrator trays.
    6. Bake 20 minutes then flip for 20 minutes if using oven.  For the dehydrator turn to 115F for 6-8 hours or until completely dry.
    7. Store in an airtight container.
