Kale Chips with a Kick!

Wow - October is off to a busy start!  Taught a RAW class on Friday night, have another on Wednesday night and another next Saturday!  My house has been deplete of "snack food" so yesterday I whipped up some Kale Chips with a Jalepeno Kick - these suckers are unbelievable!

3 bunches of Kale
1/2 cup of Olive Oil

1 Cup soaked cashews
1 Large Red or Orange Pepper
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbs nutritional yeast
2 Lemons, juiced

1 Jalepeno (seeded)
1 Tbs Crushed Dried Chili
4 Cloves of fresh garlic
1 Tbs Onion Powder
1 Tbs Sea Salt

Soak cashews for 4 hours in salted water.  Clean and rinse Kale and tear into large chunks.  Douse with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.  Massage into Kale.  In the Vitamix, add cashews (drained), red/orange pepper, water, yeast, lemon juice, jalepeno, dried chili flakes, garlic, onion powder and salt.  Blend until smoother.  Pour over Kale and massage in.  Lay Kale leaves on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115 until crisp.  THESE JOKERS ARE SPICY!!  If you don't want them super spicy omit either the jalepeno or chili.  Or you can cut the amount of those two ingredients in half.  ENJOY!
