I won’t ever quit you—kale chips

Kale chips, you and I started off innocently with just some salt and oil. But when the time was right, we took our relationship to the nooch level.

Now I have you in all the ways my heart desires…store bought, home-made, dehydrated, baked, with nooch, without nooch—it don’t matter how you dress! You will always be my number one secret healthy vegan junk food and I will never quit you.

I won’t quit you kale chips


  • 1 cup cashews (soaked for at least an hour)
  • 1 large garlic clove (peeled)
  • 6 baby carrots
  • 2 tbs of nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tbs almond milk
  • salt (to taste)
  • paprika (to taste)
  • 1 bunch of kale (cleaned, stems removed and leaves torn up into random chip sizes…also make sure the leaves are dry!)


  1. Throw everything (except the kale) into a high-speed blender or food processor.
  2. Pour mixture over kale chips,ย preferablyย in a bowl.
  3. Massage the mixture onto the kale (I use my hands) so every kale leaf is coated thoroughly.
  4. Spread the leaves out on a baking pan.
  5. Bake leaves in the oven at 250 degrees for about an hour (until the kale leaves are crisp and the mixture is no longer moist). Every oven is different so just keep checking!!
  6. Once the kale chips are done, take them out and sprinkle more paprika on top for more heat (or not) and let cool.
  7. Eat them all. Eat all the kale chips. Or share ’em if that’s yer thing.

      I know, I love kale chips. It lets me satisfy my chip need without feeling like a total glutton like after I’ve finished off a whole bag of kettle chips (true story all the time).

      I really want to try dehydrating my own one day too. So far, I’ve only had store bought dehydrated. The kale chips we got in our swag bags were yummy!

        Agreed. Kettle Chips are ridiculous. When I buy a bag of the organic salt & pepper (my personal fave), I pretty much just have to admit to myself that I will be eating the whole thing.

    Yep, can’t go for a day without kale chips. Your chips look awesome! I’m too lazy to make my own. Lately I’ve just been getting the dehydrated ones at the farmer’s market, imagine my distress when the vendor failed to show last week. :-0

      Thanks for letting me know about the peanut butter! That is something that most people have on hand so that is really good to know. I am curious to try it with peanut butter now! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love kale chips with a bottle of kombucha! My occasional guilty splurge. Off to the store I go to pick up a bunch of kale. I am so doing this. Thanks for sharing!!

        Same here! I’m hoping to get your kale chips down first, then I’ll conquer the kombucha. All we need is some organic black tea, sugar, water and a scoby ๐Ÿ˜€
