After eating a $7.00 bag of Kale chips the other day, I decided to experiment with dehydrating my own.
Kale has many benefits. Kale contains dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. Kale is high in anti-oxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, and contains vitamin K, C, and A.
This recipe contains a paste to coat the kale to add flavor and other health benefits.
After a few tries, I came up with this recipe that even my teenagers will eat!
Whether you’re following an all-raw diet or simply want to eat more greens, here is a great recipe that won’t break the bank. It is also super easy and quick to make.
The recipe below paste contains, hemp, cashews, and garlic, among other healthy ingredients.
Hemp is high in protein and contains all nine of the essential amino acids. It also has high amounts of fatty acids and fiber as well as containing vitamin E, trace minerals, and a balanced ratio of omega 3 and 6 fats.
Cashews are rich in iron, phosphorus, selenium, magnesium and zinc. They are also good sources of phytochemicals, antioxidants, and protein.
Garlic has many healing properties and is often known as nature’s “wonder drug”.
1 bunch of raw organic kale
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 clove raw garlic
¼ cup cashews
¼ cup lemon juice
1/8 cup water
1 tablespoon miso paste or powder
(The miso powder soup mix is great because it adds some other spices to the recipe, but straight miso will work too.)
2 tablespoons green powder
(such as Kyogreen or Swanson’s Max Green)
Throw all the ingredients (*except kale) in a blender.
Remove the thick main stem from the kale.
Coat the kale leaves evenly with the mixture.
Lay coated kale leaves on dehydrator trays.
Dehydrate for 4-6 hours or until dry.
Break into bite size pieces.
