Cheesy Kale Chips

Every now and then you get that tankering for something wickedly crispy, salty, cheesy, kinda BBQ'ey and just downright delicious. Well, let me introduce you to my Cheesy BBQ Kale Chips. You'll need a dehydrator, but I must admit I've seen a lot of kale chip recipes that are done in the oven so I may have to have a go at it and let you know to do.

14oz / 400g Kale

4 tbsp Nutritional yeast

1 tbsp Smoked paprika

1 tsp cumin

¼ tsp Cayenne pepper or chilli to taste

Pinch of stevia

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tbs tamari

½ cup / 120ml Water

Water and pinch of Salt for soaking

2-3 tbs chia

1tbs psyllium

Cheesy BBQ Kale Chips


  1. Clean and de-stem the Kale then chop into large chip sizes

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients into a blender and blend to combine.

  3. Make sure that you taste test at this stage, do any adjustments that you feel it needs. Eg, I usually have to add more yeast flakes to make it cheesier or balance the salty sweetness to make it sing!

  4. Add the mixture to the kale in a large bowl and massage it through ensuring that each leaf is covered in the mix and this will also soften the kale.

  5. Spread out onto dehydrator trays then place into the machine set at 60℃ for about 8 hours or until completely dry and crisp.

  6. Store in very well sealed containers in the pantry.




  • I've also added fresh chard and they workout out really well. Don't worry either about what type of kale you use, I used two different types. Both delicious and super crisp. 

  • You can sub flaxseed (Linseed) or cashews for the chia.
