Image source: Sour Creme Kale Chips

This is a flavor-bursting and nutrient-dense treat.

Time: 35 minutes prep; cook time varies | Makes 2 medium-size servings or 1 large

Ingredients:

  • 1⁄2 cup cashews, presoaked
  • 35 minutes
  • 1⁄3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1⁄4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • 1 bunch kale

Preparation:

  1. Combine the soaked cashews, water, onion powder, garlic powder, vinegar, salt, and parsley in a blender and process until smooth, stopping the machine and scraping down the sides if needed (this may take several minutes). Set aside.
  2. Wash the kale to remove any grit, then carefully dry the leaves. Strip the leaves into a bowl, roughly tearing any large pieces. Discard the stems. Pour the creamed mixture on top of the kale, using a small spatula or spoon to remove the mixture from the blender. Using clean hands, massage the mixture into the kale for 1 minute to evenly coat the leaves.
