Do you ever have moments when another salad or piece of fruit just doesn't cut it? You want something different. Something heavier; more grounding. You want comfort food, dammit. A very common craving is for something seriously crunchy - crunchy like crisps, not crunchy like carrots. If you thought that that's not an option available on a raw diet, think again.
Allow me to introduce the kale chip.
If you've never heard of the concept, you can find full explanation plus recipe here. Seriously, you have to try these.
Kale: how can a green leafy thing that is capable of single-handedly ruining an otherwise perfectly palatable vegetable juice, be so crunchily, moreishly, teasingly gorgeous when coated in a blend of cashews, red pepper, lemon juice and nutritional yeast and slowly dried until crispy.
If you live in the US you may be lucky enough to be able to buy Kale In a Crunch kale chips. If you don't, and if you don't already have a dehydrator, it is worth buying one solely so you can make these. Just do it, and then thank me later.
If there's a better snack to chow down on while chuckling over Simpsons re-runs on a cold winter's night I don't know what it is.
