Homemade Kale Chips
- 1 Bunch Fresh Organic Kale
- 1/4 cup Olive oil
- 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
- juice of half a lemon
- Himalayan salt (to taste)
- pinch of cumin (to taste)
- Excalibur Dehydrator
Wash kale and cut it into 2-3 inch long strips. They will dehydrate and shrink slightly. Put the kale in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, Himalayan salt, diced garlic, lemon juice, and cumin, to taste.
Let the kale marinade for 20 minutes. Place kale on a dehydrator tray and turn the dehydrator on to dry for 8 hours at 115F.
Once you get the hang of working with a dehydrator you'll be looking to experiment with so many other foods and spices!
And if you have kids in the house, they are going to love experimenting with you. Fun, Easy and SO Healthy!

Kale Glorious Kale!
One of our favorite foods in the Grail kitchen, it provides one with much needed nutrients and associated health benefits. Kale is absolutely rich and abundant in calcium, iron, and Vitamins. Kale has seven times the beta-carotene of broccoli and is rich in Vitamin C not to mention the much needed fiber so lacking in most people's diet today. Research suggests that green foods such as kale may protect against cancer as it contains the all important antioxidant Vitamin E.
Kale Chips is a terrific alternative munchie to make ahead and store in a glass container for your kids and family to reach into when needing a little snack.
You can also roast some pumpkin seeds in a bit of olive oil and Himalayan salts. Throw this on top of the Kale for added flavour and crunch!
