Olio-Garlic Kale Chips

This might seem basic for a lot of raw fooders out there, but kale chips are delicious. I always struggled with recipes that required you to soak nuts and seeds, or to add a bunch of different ingredients for complex combinations. Kale chips are supposed to replace things like potato chips right? We need convenience! Convenience I say!

So... I was messing around with some different ingredients and have developed the best kale chip recipe I've had in a long time. As a "vata" constitutional type, I need things to be oily to balance out my natural tendency for dryness. These chips are both crunchy, and oily, just like the good old American greasy potato chip! What a God send!

Here's the recipe:

1/4C Raw Organic Macadamia Nuts (NO SOAKING NEEDED!)
1/2C Raw Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 or 3 cloves of Organic Raw Garlic (you can always up the garlic if you like it more pungent)
1/2t Herbamere

Just blend everything in a Vitamix and pour it over a head of destemmed kale. The picture shown is of curly kale, but I would imagine that dino kale would work fine too. Make sure to massage it into the kale, and then throw it on a teflex sheet in the dehydrator at 105 degrees until crispy. It doesn't take long so overnight or even 4 or 5 hours will do.

BE CAREFUL. These things are highly addictive. I had a moment where I was watching a movie and eating these things, and I went through 4 trays in one sitting! Yikes!

They're amazing though. Please let me know if you like the recipe! It's an original! :-)

(AND, it's good for phases 1 and 1.5 of the Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine diet if you're interested!)

  1. If I didn't need to limit my oil intake, I would so try these :)
