raw snacks - cashew yellow crackers and kale chips
I made some almond milk today (see here)..
(and if you have not made almond milk yet, you can see me here making it)..
So from the milk I had some raw almond pulp left - from the 300g soaked almonds I used for the milk.
Further I used:(.. a wooden spoon.. haha)
If you use usual dried nori better add some water to the mix, or soak them a bit in water before use).. use them to inspiration.. I love the taste of algae in my snacks and I love the sea.
Plus, it's super healthy.
..oops, I am not aloud to say that it's healthy for you because of the Codex, better go bellow and read the disclaimer:-)
First I put in the (small, personal-) blender the ingredients above - besides the almond pulp - and I got a thick sauce.
I mixed half of this sauce with the almond pulp and tasted it.
It was salty and tasty enough so I made the crackers:
Because I had some sauce left, I put it on kale leaves and made some kale crackers.
I left them both around 10 hours in the dehydrator (with one turn in-between);
About the drying time: We have really wet air here so see how it goes: check that the kale leaves are not too mushy or too dry.. And the crackers are best when dry (and crunchy) on the outside and still soft on the inside.
The "nourishing" part of today was all an experiment because I have never made any of these recipes before with almond pulp (mostly I make cookies) and the kale leaves were from a batch that I had in the freezer, also by means of experimenting.. (also see: apple milk!)
The crackers are delicious and although I thought that I made too few with the pulp I had - they are really tasty and powerful so we cannot eat more than one at a time (with big breaks in-between:-D).
I always love my kale chips but must say that the ones made with fresh leaves are better. . After de-freeze the leaves were much too soft and mushy..
Still, better than none, in my opinion... V. feels the same (he loves the kale chips).
We will have to wait a few month for fresh kale, I suppose:-)
Do you make kale chips? What do you love to use ? Please leave a comment below:-)
