CREAMY RED KALE CHIPS

December 1, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Kale chips made with thick creamy dressing are certainly more appealing as it gets colder. These ones are red all the way : the kale is red and the sauce has red onion, red bell peppers and red chili flakes. They taste deliciously sweet and slightly hot.

Red kale with creamy dressing

Creamy Red Kale Chips

Serves 4 :

400g red kale

1 cup brazil nuts, soaked 4 to 8 hours

red bell peppers

1 small red onion

2 tbsp olive oil

lemon, freshly squeezed

1 tsp sweet white miso

 

2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes *(not raw)

Prepare your kale by discarding the hard stems and tearing it into not too small pieces and put it in your largest mixing bowl.

Remove the seeds from the bell peppers and chop them roughly. Also chop the onions roughly. Blend the bell peppers, onion, olive oil, lemon juice, sweet miso and nutritional yeast together. You will have quite a thick dressing, and you will need to stop your blender to scrape the sides or use your tamper, if you have a high speed blender.

Pour the dressing over the kale and mix thoroughly using your 2 hands, to ensure the kale is evenly coated.

Spread your seasoned kale onto 2 dehydrator trays lined with non stick sheets and dehydrate at 42°C for about 12 hours or until crispy. Check halfway and then every few hours, trying not to eat it all. The time needed to dehydrate the kale chips until crispy varies, as it depends on the temperature and humidity levels around.

Enjoy

RAW DEHYDRATED BALSAMIC VINEGAR AND 2 PAPRIKAS KALE CHIPS

October 28, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

This is yet another simple kale chips recipe, one of my personal favourites. The marriage of the 2 sorts of paprika powder gives a depth to the flavour.

Serves 4 :

400g Kale (I used green kale, works with any variety)

2  tbsp Olive oil

1 tbsp  balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp Hugarian paprika

1 tbsp smoked hot paprika

Prepare your kale by discarding the hard stems and tearing it into pieces. Smaller pieces will dehydrate faster, but they will be crumblier and create more mess while eating. Bigger pieces will take longer to dehydrate, but they are nicer and easier to bite in, and they will not create so much mess. So you want to find the right balance for you.

Add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the 2 paprikas. Mix thoroughly to ensure the kale is evenly coated.

Spread your seasoned kale onto 2 dehydrator trays lined with non stick sheets and dehydrate at 42°C for about 12 hours or until crispy. Check halfway and then every few hours, trying not to eat it all. The time needed to dehydrate the kale chips until crispy varies, as it depends on the temperature and humidity levels around.

Enjoy

Stay Well and Happy,

HOT MACA CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE

October 26, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

This one is a very serious chocolate affair for cacao lovers. Not your regular breakfast smoothie, more for before going out for a whole day of vintage shopping as you need something super sustaining to keep you going while you look for berries.

 

 

For 1 hungry person :

1/4 cup hazelnuts (you can use almonds or even cashews)

1 cup pure water

2 ripe bananas

2 tbsp rolled oats

1 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla powder or 1 vanilla bean

1/2 tsp maca

pinch of crystal salt or sea salt

Start by making your hazelnut milk : blend the hazelnuts with the water, strain with a nutmilk bag or a very fine sieve. Rinse the blender.

Return the strained milk to the blender. Add the banana, oats, cacao powder, vanilla, maca and salt. Blend until perfectly smooth.

If you are the happy owner of a Vitamix or similar high speed blender, blend further, until the smoothies gets warm.

If you are the happy owner (:-) of a regular blender, pour the smoothie into a glass jar and gently warm it by putting the jar in a pan of boiling water.

Or you can just have it at room temperature too, it is just as good.

Note 1 : The smoothie might seem too liquid for you, but after warming it up the fibre in the oats does make the smoothie set. If you are having it at room temperature, you might want to add in an extra tablespoon of oats.

Note 2 : I personally find the 2 bananas do make the smoothie sweet enough, but you can sweeten it more with small amounts of your favourite sweetener. I would add tiny amounts at a time, taste and only add f necessary.

Enjoy and be rewarded with long lasting energy.

Keep smiling
