My Favorite Kale Chips – Spiced Lemon and Tahini

Hello!

As a past potato chip addict (I am glad to say I have kicked this one) I am always searching for “chips” that give me the same satisfaction as potato chips. AND are good for me. I stumbled across kale chips about a year ago and was buying them in Trader Joes and Whole Foods for who knows how much, but it was draining my wallet! So, recently I gained the courage to try making them myself and I am so happy with the results! This recipe is just my favorite currently, I love some heat and to have them baked crispy so feel free to customize how you like! Taste the seasoning and see what you like. Okay let’s get into this recipe!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (around 350 degrees F).
  2. Rinse your kale well and remove all the stems. Make sure to dry your kale VERY well, this is essential if you want crispy delicious chips!
  3. In a large bowl combine all your seasonings, lemon juice, tahini and olive oil.
  4. Pour your kale into the bowl and using your hands mix thoroughly until each kale “chip” is covered with seasoning.
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the kale chips evenly on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes, flipping the chips over halfway and checking them every 5 minutes or so (they can burn quickly).
  7. Remove your kale chips from the oven, and enjoy!

Servings: Makes 1-2 servings
Prep&Cook Time: 25 minutes

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you give kale chips a try!

Cheezy Almond Crackers – Vegan & Gluten-free

Happy Friday!

Today I have a super simple recipe for almond crackers. These are my favorite crackers to make and you can customize them anyway you like, I love just garlic, paprika and nutritional yeast! Dress them up or dress them down! I used a zig zap cutter to make the shape of the crackers, obviously I don’t have as much talent as I hoped but these can be made in a ny shape you like! These crackers are perfect for a snack or hors d’oeuvre and as always they are vegan and gluten-free! Let’s get into the recipe!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine together your almond meal, nutritional yeast, seasoning and water until a wet sand like dough has formed.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make sure to oil the parchment paper so your crackers don’t stick, I use coconut oil usually.
  4. Pour your dough out onto the parchment paper and with another sheet of oiled parchment paper, place that over the top of the dough (so the rolling pin doesn’t stick).
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out your dough until it is about 1/4 of an inch thick.
  6. Peel back the top layer of parchment paper and now you can cut the shapes of your crackers. I used a zig zag cutter to make the squares and a round pastry tip to create the holes in the center of the cracker.
  7. Place them into the oven for 20 minutes, after the first 10 minutes check every few minutes to make sure they don’t overcook.
  8. Once they are golden brown take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving with cheese, dip or veggies!

Servings: Makes 4 servings
Prep & Cook Time: 30 minutes

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
