Kale Chips!

Looking for a delicious snack that won't break the bank??? You should try making your own kale chips! As many of you know, I LOVE kale. It's packed full of nutrition and flavor and when I first tasted kale chips, I knew I found a friend for, I'm a little crazy. The first time I tried making these delectable snacks it did not turn out so well. The sauce on the kale was too soggy and a few of them came out crispier than I wanted. So, I gave in and bought some Alive and Radiant kale chips from Whole Foods. They were delicious! Alive and Radiant uses a dehydrator so their chips are raw, with natural ingredients, and tasty. I was hooked and treated myself to a bag of the tasty chips once in a while. But, after a few bags you realize that these treats are way more expensive than you would like them to be. So, I decided to try and make my own again. As much as I would like a dehydrator, I do not have one yet, so I baked my chips. For the sauce I used red bell pepper, nutritional yeast, soaked cashews, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I blended everything up in my blendtec and mixed the sauce together with the kale. I threw them into a 210 degree oven for about 2 hours.
