Yum!We have a raw foods class on the 13th and my teaching partner and I have been dehydrating. I think she did 12 bunches of them. I keep eating the three bunches I did from my household out of the dehydrator. Dh just said they are really tasty! Raw is definitely NOT torture!
oohhh....I have to try these! :) I always buy kale but never end up eating it.
Those sound so delish! How do you make them? DO SHARE!
How exactally did you make your Kale crips... what did you put on them to taste so delicious. How long did you dehydrate them for?
This is a recipe I found on the board quite some time ago. I'm sorry that I have lost the author of the recipe.
Deliciously Live Kale Krisps
2 bunches kale, de-stemmed, and torn into small pieces by hand
Place kale in a very large mixing bowl.
1/3 + 2 T sesame tahini
1/3 + 2 T almond butter
½ c apple cider vinegar
½ c water, more if needed for consistency
¼ c fresh parsley
¼ c Nama Shoyu
2 green onions
1 clove garlic
1 lemon, juiced
¼ t sea salt
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth to get a thick yet pourable consistency. You may have to add more water to achieve smoothness. Pour over kale and mix thoroughly with your hands generously coating each piece of green.
You want this mixture to be really covering and sticking to each piece.
Place greens onto a dehydrator tray fitted with mesh screen and Teflex sheet. Dehydrate for 4 hours at 110 degrees or until crispy. You may need to rotate trays occasionally to achieve uniform crispness.
Awesome~ Thanks a whole bunch! :)
Make sure you lay each individual Kale crisp on the tray. My partner calls me the "Nutty Professor" because once I made Kale clumps. I was so tired of making crisps, that I just made mountains of kale on the trays. It ended up tasting like cheese straws and did not have the same effect that the krisps had. She saw it as a disaster. I saw it as a failed experiment.:D
lmao! Thats hilarious :D

Can this be done with spinach?
I also make a raw Teriyaki sauce and then marinate the kale for a bit in it and then dehydrate. They are so yummy. It is amazing how much kale I can eat when I make chips out of them.
No, you cannot make spinach into the same thing. It breaks apart and you cannot get it off your dehydrator sheet very well. I tried it and it made a huge mess.:) It is just too thin.
You can use collard greens though.
Dr. White: This is from an old post of mine on the forum. Here you go!
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!
Wow, Chrissy, I love your new avatar picture. You look younger in every single picture!!!

Love them, they are so delish.!!
I almost ate all the coating before tossing it with the kale....so caution everyone....be full when you put this together or you may risk not even getting them into the dehydrator!
I bet the coating would make a great dip or dressing.
Everyone needs to whip these up!
Thank you Chrissy Gala for putting them out there in the first place!!!
Kudos to you!
