I use my excalibur dehydrator which dries things very evenly and quickly, if you have another one, you may need to swap around trays, or lay it out a little thinner, or it may need to go a bit longer. (this is my dehydrator- https://amzn.to/34FkK6B )

If you’ve never had nutritional yeast before…give it a chance! Its got a different flavour that’s really quite “more-ish” as my Grandma would say. Its jam packed with B vitamins which makes it a great “food as medicine” to consume! My husband doesn’t love it on popcorn but gobbles it up on these! He also doesn’t enjoy kale salad or sautéed kale, but enjoys these! So just give them a chance…okay?!
8 oz/12 cups kale stripped off the stem and ripped into roughly 3″ pieces
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
(optional- garlic powder? smoked paprika? other spices you love? try it!)
Massage the kale and oil together. Add the salt and nutritional yeast. Mix well. Lay out on 2-3 trays of an excalibur dehydrator , no need to lay out evenly or in single layer, just pile em on there!
Set the dehydrator to 165F for 6 hours, and at the end of 6 hours, check that they’re nice and crunchy. If not, add another 1-2 hours and come back. Mine are always perfect after 6 hours, but results may vary a bit!
I find these don’t keep the best, they start to get chewy after a few hours. So we just make what we plan to eat within the next few hours, which is usually a double batch. My family GOBBLES these up!
