Several Bunches of Fresh Organic Kale (any variety)
1 cup cashews or sunflower seeds (soaked ~ 6 hours and rinsed)
½ cup pumpkin seeds (soaked ~6 hours and rinsed)
½ cup hemp seeds
½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of one Lemon
½ to 1 teaspoon sea salt/pink salt
½ cup nutritional yeast
½ red bell pepper
1 Tablespoon Chipotle powder
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon coriander seed
½ cup water or more as needed for consistency
Combine all ingredients other than kale leaves in blender/food processor. 
Blend until a creamy consistency is obtained, adding water as needed.
Taste and add spices to taste as needed, keeping in mind the flavor will concentrate once dehydrated.
With a pastry brush or small spoon, brush/coat each kale leaf evenly with a moderately thin layer of the nutty batter.
Dehydrate the prepared kale leaves at 115 degrees Fahrenheit for ~24 hours. Depending on humidity levels it may take longer.
