Cheesy Kale Chips

This is one raw food snack that most non-raw people have tried. Its cheesy, crunchy and a satisfying snack that is genuinely great for you.

You can make them in an oven, but if you want to preserve the enzymes and get more nutrition from them, make them in a food dehydrator.

Recipe from goneraw.com, and altered how I like it:

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. nutritional yeast
1/2 t. fine sea salt (use more or less to taste)

Put coating ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Using your hands, massage coating onto kale pieces getting it inside of curls. Put on teflex lined dehydrator trays (don't worry about flattening them, they're better bunched up) and dehydrate at 105 overnight or until coating is dry. Slide onto regular mesh screens and dehydrate 12 hours, or until very crispy.
