Timmy’s Cheesy Kale Chips

We’ve spoken with TheNorthFace athlete Tim Olson (podcast here) and really enjoy his laid back attitude, fitness prowess, and personal priorities.  Here he shares a healthy snack straight from his website.


Kale is one of my favorite foods, there are many varieties and countless ways to prepare it and it’s always delicious right from the garden.

Ingredients (all organic):

1 1/2 large bunches of  kale

2 cup cashews (soaked, i only do about 5–10min but can be longer)

1/4 cup chia seeds (soaked with cashews)

3 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped

2 medium sized lemons squeezed

1 Tablespoon honey (optional)

3-4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon garlic granules

1/2 Tablespoon turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon  sea salt or to taste.

*all measurements are a rough estimate. i don’t really measure, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that. :-)

How to prepare:

Blend all ingredients (besides kale) till smooth.
Tear Kale off stem and into 2-3″ chunks.
Pour sauce over Kale in a bowl and mix till kale is covered on both sides.
Layer in dehydrator making sure not to overlap so they dehydrate properly.
Dehydrate at 135f-58c for 2-3 hrs
Then lower temperature to 115f-46c for 8 hrs or until moisture is gone, they should not be soggy but crunchy.

Enjoy! yum yum in the belly.
