Dehydrated Cheesy Kale Chips

Difficulty: Easy

Makes one large bowl

We all know by now that kale is basically king of the veggie patch; it’s high in iron, calcium, fibre, vitamins C, A and D plus it’s good for a whole bunch of other stuff too! My brother got into dehydrating in the nineties but I’d never really thought about it again until recently when I saw a dehydrator on sale for $40 and decided to pick one up. Now I can’t stop thinking of things to try and first cab on the rank were kale chips. These guys are deliciously crunch, light, flavoursome and totally good for you. Like I said, king of the veggie patch.


  • 10 stalks of kale
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  1. Rinse and remove the stalks from your kale before breaking into pieces (about the size of regular chips). Place them in a large bowl.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oil, agave, tahini, nutritional yeast and salt and mix well.
  3. Pour the cheesy mixture into the large bowl and coat the kale evenly.
  4. Distribute the kale onto the dehydrator trays and leave overnight on a 40°C setting.
  5. Once ready, the chips will be light and crispy. Enjoy!
