These crunchy kale chips are a super-healthy alternative to crisps. Kale is one of the most nutrient dense vegetables you can eat, offering up folate, fibre, iron, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K and many more! Nutritional yeast is high in B vitamins and protein, and adds a delicious, more-ish cheesy flavour. Warning – these tempting chips are highly addictive!
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees celsius.
Wash the kale thoroughly and dry completely, using a couple of paper towels.
In a food processor, blend together all the ingredients (except the kale) to create a thick sauce.
In a large bowl, cover the kale with the cashew mixture, massaging the sauce into the kale with your hands. Ensure each piece of kale is well coated.
Divide the kale between 2 or 3 baking trays (depending on their size), and spread out in an even layer - make sure they don’t overlap to ensure crispiness. You can bake them in batches if you need to.
Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and toss the chips to ensure even baking. Put back in the oven for a further 5 - 10 minutes (or until they are crispy and lightly golden brown). It’s important to watch them carefully to ensure they don’t burn.
Once cooled, eat straight away or store in a airtight container for 2 - 3 days.
Tip - They start to lose their crispiness after about 24 hours, so enjoy them sooner rather than later!
