Garlic Kale Chips Recipe


  • 1 large bunch of curly green kale – about 8 firmly packed cups
  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked in filtered water for 2 – 4 hours (soaking is optional)
  • ⅛ cup filtered water as needed for desired consistency
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast to taste
  • 1 whole bulb of garlic (about 8-10 cloves) roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar (optional)
  • 4 teaspoons granulated garlic

Make It Happen:

  • Rip the kale from off the stalks (discard the stalks), wash and place in a colander to drain. You want a little bit of water left on the kale.
  • Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Place all the ingredients except the granulated garlic in a food processor until smooth, thick and creamy. You want something like the consistency of hummus. You might need to add a little bit more water.
  • Take small handfuls of the cashew cheese and massage into the kale. I use kitchen gloves for this. Repeat this until all of the mixture has been added and the kale is evenly coated with no large clumps of “cheese”.
  • Toss through the granulated garlic so that it is evenly distributed.
  • Place the kale evenly on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115 degrees for about 8 hours until crisp.

If you don’t have a dehydrator you can place them on baking sheets in the oven on the lowest setting for about 10–12 hours.
