'Cheesy' Raw Kale Chips

Kale is everywhere at the moment, not long ago it was hard to find, now the local supermarket carries it. I have to admit I have never actually cooked with it, but only used it in juices or to make these tasty chips. This recipe is so simple and so tasty. Abigail enjoys helping make them, and loves to help sample them!

Kale is a form of cabbage, it's very high in beta carotene, vitamin k, vitamin c and rich in calcium. Kale also contains sulforaphane, a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. So these 'cheesy' chips are actually super good for you!

'Cheesy' Kale Chips

1 bunch curly kale
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs savoury yeast flakes (also known as nutritional yeast)
1 tsp Himalayan rock salt, ground

Wash kale, remove stems and rip into bite size pieces.
Combine olive oil, yeast and salt in a medium sized bowl.
Massage the mixture into the kale leaves, then place them onto dehydrator trays*, dehydrate on 58c for 2-3hours, until crispy.

Enjoy =)

*I believe these can also be cooked in the oven, place on oven trays and cook on 200c for about 2 hrs, or until crispy.
