Any recipes out there? I had the most amazing raw dehydrated kale chips, crispy and a bit sweet. I've ordered Alissa's book and have been waiting.........for it to be delivered. I really hope she has a kale chip receipe. Mmmm. They are so good.

Oh yeah, kale chips are da BOMB! I make 'em and my kids eat them up!
Here are a couple of threads with recipes to try (Alissa's book doesn't have them):
I, too, like mine to have a little sweetness to them so I add a little agave to the marinade.

My Awesome Goddess Chips!
These chips are very hard to resist and you can't eat just one! You may need to double the recipe because they won't last very long. I sometimes eat a large bowl full as a meal and am completely satisfied.
This works best with Lacinato or Dinosaur Kale.
Chrissy's Goddess Chips
2 bunches kale, broken into large pieces by hand
3/4 c sesame tahini
1/2 c apple cider vinegar
1/2 c water ~ more if needed
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup nama shoyu
1 clove garlic
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 t. sea salt
Place kale in a large mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth to get a thick consistency. You may have to add more water. Pour over kale and mix thoroughly with your hands to coat the kale. You want this mixture to be really glued onto the kale.
Place kale onto a Teflex sheet, on top of a mesh dehydrator screen, and dehydrate for 4 hours @ 110 degrees. You'll need to use two trays. Rotate kale occasionally to dry uniformly.
The first time I made these I stood over the dehydrator and ate the chips right from the Teflex sheet. Enjoy!

The first link Rawkinlocs gave you is great. I make those ones all the time.

I have too much kale in the garden and it's sort of just sitting there because I haven't been in the kale mood.
You mentioned in one of those links that you make salt and vinegar or salt and black pepper. Can you tell me roughly how you do this, and is oil necessary when making kale chips or can they be made without oil.

This is my first batch and some are crumbly almost falling apart when i pick them up and the others are somewhat dry.
Please help me because i have a lot of kale plants in my garden too.
How do you lay them out on your dehydrater pans and how long do you let them dry?
I do love the taste of them and so glad you all posted the recipes:)
