Kale Chips with Almond Butter and Miso

  • ACTIVE: 35 MIN

“We have an entire garden bed dedicated to kale that we use for these chips,” says Sera Pelle. She usually makes them in a dehydrator, but the oven method here works perfectly, too.

  1. 1/2 cup almond butter
  2. 1/4 cup warm water
  3. 1/4 cup chopped onion
  4. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing
  5. 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  6. 1 tablespoon white miso
  7. 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (see Note)
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  9. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  10. 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  11. 2 teaspoons tamari
  12. 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  13. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  14. 1 1/2 pounds curly kale, leaves left whole and stems discarded
  15. Sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 200° and position 3 racks spaced evenly apart. In a blender or food processor, puree all of the ingredients except the kale and salt.
  2. Grease 3 large rimmed baking sheets with olive oil and divide the kale leaves among them. Drizzle the almond-butter mixture over the kale and rub each leaf to season evenly. Arrange the kale on the sheets in an even layer and season with salt. Bake for about 1 hour and 40 minutes, until the leaves are crisp. Switch the pans a few times during baking and rearrange to help them cook evenly. Let cool, then carefully lift the kale chips off the baking sheets with a spatula and serve.

Nutritional yeast is available at health food stores.
