Magical Garlic Onion and Cayenne Kale Chips (raw)

If you haven’t experienced the magic of kale chips you don’t know what you’re missing. Simple to make and better than any bag of crisps from the supermarket, this is an easy way to satisfy your salty cravings with the added benefit of protein and minerals. I got this recipe from my friend and fellow chef Kirsten Gum. Beware, it’s addicting!

Serves 3

For the Kale Chips:

2 TB Olive Oil

2 TB Nama Shoyu or Tamari

Generous Amounts of Garlic Powder

Generous Amounts of Onion Powder

Light Sprinkle of Cayenne Powder

Place the Kale in a big bowl and add your ingredients. Mix well and place on a dehydrator sheet. Now sprinkle on some nutritional yeast and dehydrate at 115 degrees for 4-5 hours until crispy.

I suggest making a double batch because if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably eat the first tray before it’s done. You don’t yield a whole lot of chips once they’re dehydrated but to be fair I did nibble a bit before they were done. :)

  • James

    Just curious why you use the nutritional yeast. I've never used this in anything and am unfamiliar with it or what it would add to this recipe. Thanks in advance for your answer.

  • Cami

    What type of food dehydrator do you use?

  • Judita

    I use the excalibur dehydrator.

  • Judita

    Red Star Nutritional Yeast gives food a cheesy flavor. I like to sprinkle it on my salads, incorporate it when I'm making cashew cheese in addition to using copious amounts on the kale chips. It's high in protein and B vitamins including B12.

  • Sue

    I make these with just Nutritional yeast and salt and olive oil. This looks good though. I am going to try it next.

  • sarah

    I am still new to the whole raw/vegan thing… what is "Nama Shoyu" and what is "Tamari"?

  • sarah

    Scratch that… just looked it up:

    Interesting and informative. I'm going to have to pick some of this up.

  • Monica Ralli/UrthBag

    OMG! This recipe looks scruuuuumptious! My dehydrator is arriving tomorrow and I can't wait to try this. Any more veggie chip recipes??? Bring em' on please! XO

    I have cheezy kale chips in the dehydrator. I wish I had put them in sooner so I could snack on them tonight!

  • Simple, Edible Fall & Winter Container Idea

    […] When you’re ready to snack on some kale, harvest the outer leaves but leave the inner leaves for another day. One of the most popular ways to eat kale seems to be kale chips, though I have never had the opportunity to try them. Adriana raves about kale chips though. This is her friend Judita’s Magical Garlic Onion and Cayenne Kale Chips. […]

    I use my gas oven at the lowest possible temp. and it works to dehydrate food at under 150 degrees. This recipe looks great; I look forward to trying it!
