Raw Kale Crackers

Kale crackers at the grocery store are just ridiculously expensive.  And you get about one serving per bag!  I decided to make my own, because I'm not paying $7 for one bag of kale chips or crackers!  Here's how to make your own.

In a food processor add the following:

  • 1 bag of kale with large stem pieces removed
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce of you're not gluten-intolerant or Worcestershire sauce if you are soy free)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Pulse in the food processor, stopping to scrape down the sides, until well combined. 

Spread out on two Paraflex sheets in a thin layer. Score into cracker-sized squares and sprinkle with sea or Himalayan salt and/or pepper, if desired.  

Dehydrate for 16-24 hours at 114 degrees. You may need to flip the crackers over about half-way through the dehydration process to get them completely crispy.  Store in air-tight containers when finished.
