BBQ Kale Chips

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

MY husband and I are huge fans of kale chips.  They never seem to last more than a few days, shoot if I have any left on the dehydrator sheets by the time they are “done”, I am lucky. :)  They are that good!  Today, I came across a raw recipe for a BBQ sauce that was developed by Yum Universe.  I had a head of kale in the fridge patiently waiting to be used so I brought the two together to make BBQ Kale Chips.  They are in the dehydrator right now and I tell ya what…the smell omitting from that room is heavenly!  We like our kale chips well coated so I used a complete recipe of BBQ sauce to one head of kale.  This BBQ recipe is a bit on the sweet side.  We loved the outcome but will play some more with the flavoring.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 1-2 hours
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large clove organic garlic
  • 2 Tbsp organic white onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Nama Shoyu (for gluten-free preparation, use wheat-free Tamari—not raw.)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh, organic lemon juice
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups water (to desired consistency)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey (strict vegans can replace with sweetener of choice like maple or yacon syrup)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (my addition)
  • 1 bunch curly kale

Preparation:

  1. Soak your sun-dried tomatoes for 1-2 hours until soft.
  2. Wash and remove the stems of the kale leaves.  Tear into smaller pieces and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add tomatoes and all other ingredients to the blender and mix until creamy.
  4. Pour BBQ over the kale and mix well with your hands to be sure each piece gets nicely coated.
  5. Place on teflex sheets that come with your dehydrator, be sure to space the pieces out a bit so you can get good air flow around them.
  6. Dry on 115 degrees  (F) for about 8 hours or until the desired dryness is reached.  I like my chips on the chewier side.
  7. Store in an air-tight container for several weeks.
