Kale Chips

The Cosmic Coconut is an all vegan, all organic juice bar, which is pretty otherworldly for Memphis. I've been a fan since day one and often pop in for a Go Green (cucumber, apple, celery, ginger, chard, lemon) juice when I'm running errands out east. On my last few visits, I've also picked up an order of their delicious kale chips. I know, right? Kale and chips don't even belong in the same sentence, but they taste so good it is easy to forget that they derive from a vegetable. The kale is coated in dressing and then put in a dehydrator overnight. The dressing is definitely the secret here. Made from shredded coconut, cashews, garlic, lime, lemon, sea salt, ginger, cayenne, black pepper, carrots, nutritional yeast, and Mexican fiesta seasoning, it is a little sweet, a little spicy, and also quite tangy. After the initial crunch, the chips basically melt in your mouth. Seriously, a vegetable has never tasted this good. — Stacey Greenberg
