1 ½ Tbs. untoasted, unrefined sesame oil (Flora or Premier Labs brand)
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil (important for flavor)
1-2 Tbs. wheat free tamari
2 tsp. Lakanto zero glycemic sweetener or 2 drops liquid stevia
1/8 tsp. cayenne powder
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup)
1/4 cup hemp seeds or olive oil
1 clove garlic
2 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 tsp. high mineral salt
1/4 tsp. thyme
1 Tbs. dried or 5 Tbs. fresh chopped dill weed
1 cup hemp seeds or Brazil nuts
4 tsp. lemon juice or 2 1/2 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. high mineral salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ cup water for chips and ¾ cup for dressing
Blend until smooth before adding:
1 tsp. dry dill weed
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
Take 1 large head of curly kale or the vegetable equivalent and wash and dry well.
Use the whole leaf and stem of the kale, beet tops or collards and leave the leaves as whole as possible.
Toss the dressing with the greens together in a bowl and mix until the leaves are coated.
Place on dehydrator trays that have been lined with drying sheet and let dry for 4 or more hours at 105°.
Remove the drying sheet and continue drying about 3 more hours or until crisp.
Let cool completely before storing in a glass jar.
Note: Storing these chips in a zip lock bag will make them go stale within 12 hours!
