Enjoy these Vegan Kale Chips

True confession coming up. Potato chips are one my favorite foods. And I know that these companies invest tremendous amounts into the sensation of salt, crunch and flavor. And generally they are not considered too healthy and yet I love the kettle chip crunch and flavor all the same. Vegan kale chips are the “almost there” substitute and I know you would prefer not to pay $7 a bag for them 😍. So here’s a recipe that has lots of room for variation. I think my favorite part is that you can use any spice blend that you might enjoy! What’s new on your plate for #veganuary? Let me know if you like kale chips?

If you don’t you might consider making your own recipes.

The 3 key ingredients outside of kale are raw cashews, spice blend and nutritional yeast. The sauerkraut (or lemon) is optional though a great addition as it adds a dash of flavor.

Replacing potato chips was valuable for me!

The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease.

Here are some tips to make vegan kale chips that is nutritious and delicious!

Shifting foods we “Love” to healthier options like Vegan Kale Chips

I think the key to learning to love kale chips is in understanding how much variability you have in creating tastes that are good for you! Really you can even make your favorite sour cream and onion flavor with vegan version. I also find that when mixing the coating onto the kale, letting the chips bunch together is helpful for creating a thicker chip with more crunch. Vegan kale chips can be delicious!

Vegan Kale Chips

  • Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes


  • 4 cups sliced dino kale
  • 1/2 cup soaked raw cashews (can also use soaked sunflower seeds)
  • 12 tsp spice blend of your choice – i love Pav Bhaji masala. Other options are chili spice blend (curry, herbs de Provence or poultry seasoning)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 12 tbsp sauerkraut or 1 tsp of lemon juice if not available
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. In small bowl combine soaked cashews (soak for 1 hour minimum), nutritional yeast, water, spices, lemon juice or sauerkraut
  2. Puree finely in high speed blender
  3. Cover the kale with this mixture
  4. Cook on lowest setting of your oven until crispy. I have a warming oven that is around 170…. if you have a dehydrator, that would go overnight.
  5. Eat instead of chips!
