  • Total Time: 12 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4


  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (no salt added)
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 11 1/2 tsp chili powder, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 bunches of kale (I used curly and lacinato)*


  1. Wash and dry kale. remove stems if you would like (I left them on).
  2. Blend all of the ingredients together except for the kale.
  3. Place the kale in a large bowl and pour all of the sauce over. Massage the sauce into the kale with your hands until easily and thoroughly distributed.
  4. Place in a dehydrator* on 115-120F for 12-14 hours, checking doneness around 12 hours.


You may break the kale up in half or thirds for bite-sized pieces, or you can dehydrate them whole as I did for larger bites.
This is the dehydrator brand I use 🙂 I have a 4 tray with a black door!
