As with all raw food recipes, it is important to taste and adjust. Because you are using fresh organic ingredients your recipes may come out slightly different at different times depending on the changing sweetness of your ingredients. With this recipe for kale chips, bell peppers can vary in colour and slightly in taste depending on where they are grown and the time of year.
Coat each piece of kale with the sauce and place on dehydrator trays (I use an Excalibur Dehydrator). Dehydrate until crispy (about 4-5 hours).
If you don't have a dehydrator you can try putting your oven on its lowest setting, keep the door slightly ajar and place the kale on a cookie sheet. I did this before I got a dehydrator but it is much more time consuming and the chips won't be as tasty as many of the taste giving nutrients are destroyed by the higher heat.
Salty Kale Chips
Wash and break kale away from the stem into bite size pieces. Place kale in a large bowl and mix in oil and salt. Once kale is coated, dehydrate until crispy.
This recipe makes a nice salty and crunchy chip that is also full of nutrition ... a great alternative to packaged potato chips that contain many unhealthy ingredients.
