Paleo & Whole30 Spicy Kale Chips

24 Mar

Kale chips are a great snack and this afternoon I wanted to try spicing them up a bit.  Absolute success, so if you’re looking to change things up a bit give this a try.


1 bunch kale, washed, removed from stems in chip size pieces

2/3 cup raw cashews soaked in water overnight (soak 2 hours minimum)

3 tbl. lemon juice

1 tsp. nutritional yeast (NOT active yeast)

2 tsp. chili powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

2/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (can use sea or kosher salt)


Place cashews in a bowl, add water to cover, and let sit overnight.  Wash kale, remove stems, tear into medium size pieces and set aside to dry.  Strain the nuts and process in a food processor with lemon juice, yeast, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt until the mixture is smooth.  Toss/massage the spice mixture with the kale.  Place the kale in a single layer on a rack over a baking sheet (you’ll probably need two) and bake at 225°F for 20 minutes.  Raise oven temperature to 300°F and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
