Farmers Market

So, kale chips. I’ve tried and tried to match the crunchy, substantial deliciousness of those $1,000-an-ounce crack chips from Whole Foods and finally stumbled upon something close!

So here’s my low-rent, not-quite-crack-but-getting-there kale chip recipe: Combine ½ cup raw, soaked cashews, 1 Tbs. each miso, apple cider vinegar, and tamari, and a pinch of grated ginger in blender, and puree ’til smooth. Set aside. De-stem two bunches of kale; wash and dry thoroughly. Massage (deep tissue-style) with that sauce, and spread onto two lined dehydrator trays. Dehydrate for four hours on 115°F; halfway through, flip over and rotate the trays. And then: yum!
