Spicy BBQ Sauce Ingredients:

1 head kale (depending on size and how heavily you coat them)

1 cup filtered water

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

3 Tablespoons olive oil

2 Tablespoons sunflower seeds (soaked 2 hours)

4 sun dried tomato (soaked and chopped)

1 1/2 Tablespoons onion powder

2 Tablespoons maple syrup (or your favorite sweetener)

1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro, dried

1 teaspoon basil, dried

3/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon hot red chili powder (these are VERY spicy, or 1/4 teaspoon chili powder) 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne (eliminate if you want to cut down on spiciness or add more if you don't use red (hot) chili powder)

*1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional - but really gives the BBQ authentic flavor) 

*OPTION : Instead of liquid smoke - try using smoked paprika or smoked sun dried tomatoes.


1 - Add ingredients to blender and mix until sunflower seeds and tomatoes are completely processed. Scrape down sides of blender if needed, and continue to blend until well mixed.

2 - Wash and spin-dry kale, and break into large chip sized pieces, removing any thick stems.

3 - Massage BBQ Sauce onto both sides of kale leaves. Place on non-stick dehydrator tray and dehydrate 3 hours at 110 degrees F.

4 - Flip chips over onto mesh dehydrator tray.

5 - Continue to dehydrate 12-15 hours (depending on humidity), until dry and crunchy.
