Hey, love.

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard about the kale being a “health food.” The leafy green is abundant in V vitamins, amino acids, and fiber. Though it sounds gross, there are some really tasty ways to get it into your diet (and perhaps even slip it into your kids’ meals). Today, you’re going to learn how to make kale chips. 

No pressure, but I was once told that this recipe will save the world. 

3 Benefits of Eating Kale

  1. It’s incredibly nutritious
    Kale is abundant in healthy fats which reduce inflammation, vitamin A, B vitamins, and amino acids. It also is a great source of fiber. 
  2. Good for the environment
    When you choose to eat vegan foods, you are helping to preserve resources like water because vegetables require less water to produce than factory-farmed animals.
  3. The snack is “alive” No, it won’t wake up and chew you out. Rather, eating this food will support good digestion due to living enzymes which catalyze metabolic reactions.

Cheezy Kale Chips [Vegan]

I was once told “this snack could change the world.” Why? Because the delicous concoction of flavors melts into your mouth and the depth of your soul. Forget the notion that healthy food should taste like cardboard. These kale chips are the living bomb.

Hemp Nacho Cheez

  • 1 cup shelled hemp seeds (also called hemp hearts)
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2½ tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free; can sub coconut aminos for soy-free)
  • ½ teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground turmeric

Kale Chips

  • 4 cups of washed and rinsed dinosaur kale 


  1. In a high-speed blender, such as the Vita-Mix, combine all nacho cheez ingredients until the mixture is smooth and creamy (2-3 minutes). Use a plunger or add more water to thin the cheese and make it easier to blend. 
  2. After rinsing your kale, de-stem and then tear the leaves into palm-sized pieces. 
  3. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, giving special attention to rubbing the cheez into the folds and crevasses of the kale
  4. Transfer the cheez-covered kale onto dehydrator trays. Dehydrate 6 hours at 118 degrees F. or until the chips are fully dried and crunchy. 
  5. Store in an air-tight container and eat within 2-3 days.
