Raw Flax-Tomato Crackers (Dehydrated)

Jo Zimny

By

Years ago, I bought a bag of raw crackers at my local cooperative. After trying them I thought, I can make these myself, so I gave it a try. The thing I love about these goodies is you can change the flavour by changing the herbs you use. They are not cooked so be prepared to dry them for at least 8 hours. I live in a dry climate, so that's the length of time I leave mine. If you live in a humid climate you may have to leave them longer.You will need a dehydrator with Teflex sheets for this recipe.

Ingredients

1 c
golden flax seeds (soaked 2 hours in filtered water)
8 large
sun-dried tomatoes (soaked 1/2 hour in filtered water mixed with tamari or shoyu)
1/3 large
bell pepper
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
sea-salt
2 large
paste tomatoes (raw and chopped)
1 medium
red onion, (chopped)
1 large
garlic clove (pressed)
1/4 c
dried herbs (your choice)
salt and pepper
paprika or cayenne to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: The flax seeds, once soaked should be very gooey in texture, that's exactly how they should be.
2
Put all the ingredients EXCEPT the flax seeds into a food processor.
3
Process until well combined.
4
Remove the mixture from the food processor and on low add the flax seed until well mixed. You want the flax seeds in tact.
5
Using an off-set spatula spread a large scoop of the mixture onto a teflex sheet. The mixture should be about 1/8-1/4" thick. Not to thick or thin. If it's too thin it will crumble, if it's too thick it will take a long time to dry, so try to get it fairly close to the suggested dimensions.
6
Once you've used up all the mixture dry at 110'F for 8 hours. If the crackers aren't dry enough flip them over and dry for an additional 6-8 hours. You should open the dehydrator at the 6 hour mark and test them. If the gooeyness is gone then they are ready.
7
I leave mine in a big bowl on the counter so we can sample them all the time. They are so good and good for you too.

Enjoy!
