Kale Chips!

okay... it was a New Year's Resolution (remember those? it's hard to believe we're already 3 weeks into the new year!) to blog at least once per week... today I had a major craving for kale (I love me some kale... raw especially, but kale chips rock)... basic recipe - throw some soaked sun-dried tomatoes, raw red bell pepper, garlic, nutritional yeast (makes them cheezy and delicious!!!), salt, & pepper into the Vitamix, massage into the kale (remove any particularly tough stems), and spread onto Teflax sheets or parchment paper and dehydrate at 115ยบ until crispy (usually 3-4 hours)... of course, I tend to sneak them and munch while they are 'cooking' - totally tasty :)

and the mandatory vino while un-cooking ;)
