Nacho Cheese "Dorito" Flavored Raw Vegan Kale Chips

I'm writing to you from Tim Horton's because my internet is on the fritz at home for some reason!  But I wanted to quickly tell you about this awesome Raw Vegan Sauce I made not only for a veggie or 'chip' dip but for a Zuke Pasta Sauce AND for a flavoring on my Kale Chips - which are in my dehydrator right now, actually!

I added the following into a blender:

1/4 C Raw Sunflower Seeds after soaking in water for 2 hours
1/4 C Hemp Hearts
1/4 C Nutritional Yeast
1/4 C Salsa (just tomato, onion, spices)
1/2 of a sweet red bell pepper
1 Clove of Garlic
2 T Lemon Juice
2 T Water
1/2 Teaspoon of dried Oregano
pinch of sea salt and pepper
dash of cayenne pepper

Oddly...this tasted JUST LIKE Nacho Cheese Doritos but it's Raw and Vegan!  It makes enough to coat two bunches of kale OR a medium zuke to top for a pasta sauce substitute and a bunch of green chard or kale.


  1. My dehydrator used to get such a workout. I created so many delightful things in there. I also use it to dry herbs/flowers. I remember making some dorito type chips also, so much better than the "real thing". I also made all sorts of bean chips, although not raw there were delicious, and were a hit when I worked out of the home. Those chips never lasted.
