Sun Energy Foods: Kale Chips

Solar Cooked Kale Chips

There is a certain flavor, a certain energy, a certain goodness that only things ‘cooked’ in the sun can give you. My favorite snack, by far, is Solar Cooked Kale Chips.

Kale fresh from the Farmer’s Market

Separate the steams from the leaves. Put steams in your compost and leaves in a bowl to clean.

I like to clean my kale by putting it in a bowl of cold water and adding 1/4 cup of vinegar (cleans the vegetables and fruits and neutralizes any pesticides) and 2 Tbsp. of salt (draws out the dirt and insects). I swear that my vegetables taste so much better after i do this.

From here the options are endless.

Lets go oily and salty like a potato chip…….

In this one i pre-made my spicy oil (Look for upcoming blog) and drizzled it on top

Add what ever seasonings you are in the mood for. I added salt and pepper.

or lets go salty goodness.

Drizzle soy sauce over the kale. Toss and let marinate for at the most 1 hour.

Take outside to your solar dehydrator and lay flat, not overlapping, on the screen

Place the glass pane on top and wait.

I have found that the best time to do this is first thing in the morning.  You want your food to get the morning to afternoon sun.  Depending on what part of the world you are in and how much humidity there is, determines how long it should take to be completely dehydrated.  Here in Northern New Mexico it takes about 2-3 hours.

You know your kale is completely dehydrated when you can drop one against the table and it sounds like plastic hitting the surface.

This is what they look like done.

Carefully take them off the screen, they do get brittle, and place them into a bowl.

These chips are so addictive, so good for you and your loved ones

I know you will enjoy them as much as i do 🙂
