  • 2-3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper


Cheesy Kale Chips

  • To prepare the kale, strip the leaves away from the leaf stalks and tough midribs ( those are not tasty). Wash them, then Wash the kale leaves and dry them well.
  • Tear the washed and dried leaves into sections just slightly larger than chip-sized pieces (remember--as they dry, they will shrink slightly).
  • Toss the kale in a large bowl with the olive oil and salt. Massage the leaves well with your hands, until everything is evenly coated.
  • Add nutritional yeast and cayenne pepper and toss.
  • Spread the leaves on the dehydrator trays into single layers. Don't crowd the leaves and try not to let them overlap too much.
  • Dry the kale at 145 degrees F for 1 hour. Reduce the heat to 115 degrees F and dry for another 3 to 4 hours until crispy.


If your kale chips lose their crunch in storage, re-crisp them in a low (200 F) oven for 10 minutes, or in the dehydrator at 110 F for an hour.
