Best raw kale chips recipe

If you tried my kale chips, you have probably noticed, that they taste better than they look. Well, these raw kale chips, dipped in tangy and delicious tahini dressing, taste great and look very palatable too. They are made from organic kale that grew in my personal trainer Ashlee's urban garden.... Some of that kale got converted into these healthy high protein chips!

Raw kale chips can only be made with a dehydrator. Dehydrating preserves the most vitamins and enzymes in a raw kale chips recipe. To make dehydrated kale chips, instead of a stove, place them into the dehydrator for about 3-4 hours: first hour at 135, then reducing to 115 degrees. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can enjoy these baked kale chips ready in just 10 minutes. Kale chips can be made in bulk and stored in the ziplock bags.
