[candice] if you’re like me, you used to like doritos but there’s 15 chemicals in doritos you can’t pronounce, [candice] so i turned to dorito flavoured kale chips instead. [candice] and i’m going to show you how you can make them at home! [candice] so the first thing you’re going to need for your dorito kale chips, [candice] is a red pepper. [candice] so just cut that into tiny little pieces, [candice] and add them to your high speed blender. [candice] so we’re adding red pepper to give it that kind of sweet flavour that cheese has. [candice] sweet and savoury. [candice] and it gives it that nice cheesy colour as wel. [candice] the next thing we’re going to add is about a third of a cup of nutritional yeast. [candice] this is what gives it that nutty, cheesy flavour. [candice] so to give it that salty flavour that doritos have without the excessive amounts of salt, [candice] we’re going to be using tamari or you can use soy sauce as well. about a tablespoon of that. [candice] what really holds the recipe together is the juice of one lemon that you’re going to add. [candice] this is what gives it that kind of fermented flavour. [candice] so add a clove of garlic because everything tastes better with garlic! [candice] except for your breath, it’ll taste worse. [candice] to make sure your cheese is nice and thick like cheese should be, [candice] we’re going to add one tablespoon of coconut oil. [candice] you need cashews! [candice] you have to drain your soaked cashews. [candice] so you want to make sure you’ve drained and washed your cashews really well [candice] and the soaking will just break it down, it’ll release any [candice] digestive inhibitors but it will also make the cashews softer and easier to process. [candice] and turn on your blender! [candice] and very shortly, you will have cheese! [candice] tastes like cheese, and it’s orange like doritos! [candice] to make kale chips, you will need kale. [candice] so tear up your kale into bite size pieces, [candice] and put them somewhere that is clean. [candice] so these kale chips are going to be healthy alternatives, obviously. [candice] but why? cos they’re high in vitamin k and iron. [candice] two things that we vegans are always low in. [candice] so add your kale to your bowl or the very large jar of your food processor. [candice] now we have to add the cheese! [candice] mix your cheese! [candice] so we’re going to add some onion powder, cumin, paprika and chili spice. [candice] to give it that cheesy but spicy flavour that doritos have. [candice] don’t forget the salt! [candice] so add your kale chips to your pan, [candice] here’s where things get complicated. [candice] we know everyone likes personal space. [candice] but pans are only so big but try to spread out your chips as far apart as is possible. [candice] this will make for even cooking. [candice] and then you won’t end up with wet pieces and little burnt pieces. [candice] so you wanna put those in your oven for about 15 to 20 minutes at 350F [candice] so go in halfway through and check on your chips because some may be done and some may not. [candice] so go ahead and pick off the ones that are done stick them back into the oven for about 5 more minutes. [candice] so once you’ve taken them off your pan, just add your spices. [candice] so add some chili powder, pink himalayan rock salt and some smoked paprika. [candice] see? they look just like doritos!
