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!

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!
