Why do you reserve 1/4 cup water. Does it go in the food processor?

Submitted by lisa on
Yes, add some of the reserved water to process ingredients in the food processor - as much as you need to keep the mixture liquid enough to spoon over the kale and mix well.

I've made it with lemon and tamari (for that Unami taste) extra onion and garlic. Taste the cashew cheese mixture to check its balanced before adding to kale - then dehydrate overnight Yum yum!

You can substitute parmesan cheese for taste - it has a similar tang as the yeast.

How much kale for this recipe?

What are your recommendations for long term storage of kale chips so we can enjoy the chips in the winter? Mylar bags? Could the O2 absorbers crush the chips in the bags? Thanks!

Thank you for all the great suggestions. I did use the 'links' by hitting the title of each, AND your 'salad dressing' response is perfect. You add the amount for the way you like to eat it, 'To Taste.' ( Myself, I'm a bit of this and that, no measure kind of cook,) How might you suggest an alternative to commercial Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips? Thinking I might use Live Apple Cider Vinegar and Sea Salt. What 'cha think?
