Dehydrator Kale Chips
Aren’t they pretty? One of the first things I made in my nifty new dehydrator were these kale chips. They were so good . . . and so pretty . . . I had to make them again, just so I could get the timing and measurements down for y’all.
I have a spare bottle for my smoothie maker that I use for savory stuff like this but a Magic Bullet would work, too. Or a regular blender. Just don’t try it in your food processor, even if it has the small bowl, because it won’t work. Trust me on this. I forgot between time 1 making these and time 2 and have extra stuff to clean to show for it.
Recipe: Dehydrator Kale Chips
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 6-8 cloves garlic
- 1tsp dried cilantro
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- Wash kale, remove large stems and tear into large bite sized pieces. Place in a large bowl.
- Peel garlic and blend with lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, and salt in a small blender until garlic is chopped.
- Pour liquid over kale chips and use your hands to toss and coat. Make sure each chip is well coated with oil.
- Place kale chips on dehydrator trays. Dry for 2-3 hours at 135 degrees. Kale will crisp up some upon cooling so it’s OK if not all pieces are totally crispu.
