‘Cheesy’ Raw Vegan Kale Chips
So I’ve been on a bit of a kale rampage lately. I purchased a huge bag at the supermarket and have proceeded to stuff kale into everything I’m preparing! So it only seemed sensible to dust off my old friend the dehydrator and make some healthy snack food! Kale chips!
It took me a while to find the best formula for making devilishly moorish kale chips and since I discovered the formula a few years ago I haven’t looked back! I discovered the recipe for this ‘Go Nuts Cheese Sauce‘ on the blog Little Green Dot which is an awesome blog by Militza Maury where you can find all kinds of wholesome food, lifestyle, home and beauty greatness, so make sure you check it out! This recipe has been my all-time favourite raw vegan cheesy sauce recipe ever since I found it and Militza of Little Green Dot has been kind enough to allow me to share it! I make mine without using thyme so if you want to check out the original recipe in it’s un-tinkered-with state click here. It is SO moorish and yummy that I have been caught eating it straight out of the blender on occasion…no double dipping though of course! When slathered over fresh kale and dehydrated, the result is to die for!
So here it is- the recipe for hands-down the best ever Cheesy Raw Vegan Kale Chips! Thanks Militza!
