DEHYDRATED DRIED KALE CHIPS RECIPE
Required Kitchen Equipment
Step 1: For the first step you will want to thoroughly wash and rinse your bunch of fresh kale under cool running water. Shake the excess water from the kale and then dry it using a paper towel or kitchen cloth. Using a sharp kitchen knife, cut away the center kale stalk and set it aside. The stalk is super fibrous and inedible. Next, cut, shred, or tear the leafy portion of your kale into chip size pieces. I like to use pieces that are roughly the same size as a tortilla or potato chip.
1/2 Teaspoon of Dried Cilantro Flakes
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon of Sesame Seeds
1 Tablespoon of Rice Vinegar
Step 2: For this step you will want to place your kale chip pieces into a large bowl. Next, take out a smaller mixing bowl and then add into it the salt, dried cilantro flakes, extra virgin olive oil, sesame seeds, and rice vinegar. Using a spoon or whisk rapidly stir up the oil and seasoning ingredients until you have a nice even mixture. Slowly pour this mixture over your kale chips. Moving along, roll up your sleeves and begin to manually toss and mix the kale until each individual chip has a nice even coating of oil and seasonings. When mixing your kale try not to crush the chips, as they'll wilt and not be pleasant to eat in that state.
Step 3: For the first part of this step please make sure that your kale chips are not dripping with excess olive oil. Next, arrange them on your dehydrator trays with little to no overlapping. I would also advise you not to stack the kale pieces, as this will create a large clump of chips that you'll later have to separate.
Step 4: Set your food dehydrator to a temperature of 115 degrees F, or 46 degrees C. Next, slide your kale chip lined tray into the appliance. Allow the kale chips to cook for 4 to 6 hours. During the fourth hour of processing you will want to check on the chips from time to time, as they can become overdried rather quickly. Once they're crisp with slightly golden edges they'll be ready to remove. You can serve them immediately. Most people really enjoy eating the kale chips while they're still warm.
Storage: These dehydrated dried kale chips will keep for a full two weeks if stored in the right conditions. Place the chips in a sealable airtight container and then set them in a dark place not exposed to sunlight. They need to be kept at room temperature. Generally dehydrated kale chips will last a whole week longer than their baked counterparts.
Health Benefits: These dehydrated dried kale chips are extremely healthy for your body. They contain tons of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin A, iron, potassium, calcium, and manganese. Regular intake of these specific nutrients is proven to greatly reduce heart disease and some cancer rates. Kale chips are also great for the bones, immune system, nervous system, and eyes. If you're still eating regular potato chips then you're absolutely missing out on all of the proven health benefits associated with kale chips. They're also very cheap and super easy to make.
