These delicious chips are actually good for you, easy to make, delightfully crunchy and Fat Free!
1 large bunch of Kale washed, stems removed & cut into approximately 2×4 inch pieces (I used Lacinato Kale in this batch)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups largely chopped celery
1/2 large red bell pepper, seeds removed
1/2 cup of sugar plum or your choice tomatoes
a handful of dilantro (you can use other herbs of your choice such as chives, basil, parsley etc.)
Blend lemon juice, celery, bell pepper and tomatoes in a blender until smooth. Add cilantro and blend gently until herbs are cut up but not pureed. Pour mixture over kale and massage it in so mixture covers all parts of the kale leaves. Place on dehydrator trays evenly spaced apart for proper drying and dehydrate at 105 degrees F for 8-12 hours. Be sure to check kale from time to time for crispness.
Store in an air tight container, if you don't eat them all as you're removing them from the dehydrator. ;0)
If you don't have a dehydrator and want to bake them in the oven for a non-raw chip, you can bake them at 225° F for 7-10 minutes. Just be careful not to burn them.
