Dehydrator Raw Kale Chips (OIL-FREE!)

1 bunch organic curly kale, washed well, ripped into bite-sized pieces, spin dry
½ cup walnuts (use 1/4 cup to reduce fat)
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 T. chia seeds
¼ t. garlic powder
1/4-1/2 t. Himalayan or sea salt
1 t. dry mustard
1 t. organic apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
2-3 T. nutritional yeast flakes
Black or cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)

Place everything EXCEPT the kale into the blender and quickly blend to mix the ingredients and chop the walnuts into tiny pieces. Place kale pieces into a large bowl. Pour blended mixture over the kale and massage it in. Place coated kale pieces on dehydrator trays covered with parchment paper or silicone mats (made for the dehydrator). For the first hour, set your dehydrator to 135 degrees. Then, reduce the temperature to 115 degrees and dehydrate until crispy.

NOTE: They are considered "raw" because of the low temperature being used. Dehydrating at that setting keeps most all the nutrients intact. :-)
