Easy Cheezy Raw Kale Chips Recipe

Easy Cheezy Raw Kale Chips Recipe


1 bunch of kale (approximately 1 lb)

1 oz. brazil nuts and cashews

10 grams dulse (or kelp), soaked in water for 15 minutes

1 red bell pepper

juice of 1/2 lemon (about 2 tbsp lemon juice)

1 oz. nutritional yeast

1 pinch of Celtic sea salt

1 pinch of cayenne pepper

1 tsp mesquite powder (optional)


Combine brazil nuts, cashews, bell pepper, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, cayenne pepper, and sea salt in a food processor.  Pulse until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Add a few drops of water if needed for desired consistency.  Wash the kale and tear into 1 x 1 inch pieces.  Mix the kale pieces and the “cheeze” mixture together in a bowl.  Then transfer the “cheezy kale” to your food dehydrator.  Set the dehydrator on a temperature of about 105 degrees and dehydrate the kale for 6 – 8 hours or until crispy.  You may want to check the kale every couple of hours the first time you make these kale chips to make sure they don’t get too crisp.


This recipe is not only a tasty, filling, and versatile snack rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, it also has specific therapeutic actions in your body.  Kale is an incredible source of vitamin K, which promotes healthy arterioles and capillaries, prevents bruising, and helps build strong bones.  Kale is also a powerful liver detoxifier, and promotes healthy phase 2 liver detoxification.  Brazil nuts are an abundant source of selenium, which is protective against chronic low-level exposure to ionizing radiation caused by nuclear fallout and exposure to X-rays and other environmental sources of radionuclides.  Selenium is also a crucial mineral needed for optimal health of your thyroid gland and production of thyroid hormone, which is needed for metabolic processes in every cell of your body.  Dulse, kelp, and many other sea vegetables are rich in iodine, which is also required for thyroid hormone production.

Although green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables are some of the healthiest anti-aging, anti-cancer superfoods that you should be eating daily, they do increase your dietary requirements of iodine.  Therefore, it’s important to always combine leafy greens with a source of iodine to ensure adequate thyroid hormone production and a healthy metabolic rate.
