Raw Vegan Cheesy Kale Chips

Hi All!

This is my favorite recipe for Kale Chips. These chips have a cheesy flavor, but have no dairy in them at all! These are so tasty, and a great way to get more greens into your diet.

Raw Vegan Cheesy Kale Chips

1 large bunch curly kale
1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight, rinsed and drained
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup water
2 dates, pitted
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 rounded teaspoon sea salt

Rinse and de-stem the kale - check out the video for an easy way to remove the stems!

In high-speed blender, combine all other ingredients. Blend on high for about 30 to 45 seconds.

Pour sauce over bowl of rinsed kale leaves and massage together until well mixed.

Arrange evenly across two dehydrator trays (without teflex sheets - just mesh) and dehydrate at 115 degrees for 6 to 7 hours, or until chips are dry.

Store any leftovers in airtight tupperware or plastic bag. (If you have any left - they're so good!)

Creamy Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing - Dairy- and Gluten-Free!

Hi All,

I wanted to share this recipe with you - it's a creamy dressing that is dairy-free!

There are only 3 ingredients: tahini (which are ground sesame seeds), lemon, and water. You can use equal parts of each, and adjust to make it a thinner or thicker consistency by using more or less water, and more or less lemony. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

I like this dressing over greens, with something a bit sweet to balance the flavor. Here I used shredded carrots and golden raisins with a sprinkle of hemp seeds for extra protein and omegas.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
