We, at the GWG office, are obsessed with Alive & Radiant Foods’ Kale Crunch, but at $5.99 for a bitty bag and a hardcore Kale chip habit… it’s become a spendy obsession. Cut to – we learned how to make them ourselves (fairly easy, btw)!
Our own GWG Kale crunch!
Admittedly, our Kale crunch isn’t quite as “cheesy” (and thusly, tasty) as Alive & Radiants’… but they are damned good! Here’s the recipe (thanks to Gone Raw)…
1 large bunch of curly, green kale, washed, large stems removed, torn into bite size pieces
1 cup cashews, (soaked 2 hours)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
juice of 1 lemon
2 t. agave (optional-I don’t add, I like them more salty + savory)
1 T. nutritional yeast
1/2 t. himalayan pink crystal salt (use more or less to taste)
Put coating ingredients in Vitamix. Blend until smooth. Using your hands, massage coating onto kale pieces getting it inside of curls. Put on teflex sheets (don’t worry about flattening them, they’re better bunched up) and dehydrate at 105 overnight or until coating is dry. Slide onto mesh screens and dehydrate 12 hours, or until very crispy.
