View Full Version : Onion bread question for salsababy
12-04-2006, 12:44 PM
i was reading your journal and see that u made RAWvolution's onion bread. i recently bought that book and want to try the recipe. how did it turn out? any tips? i see that he uses it all throughout the book, so even tho im not big on onions id like to give it a try.
I'm not salsababy but wanted to suggest you look back a week or 2 or do a search, there have been a lot of discussions on Matt's onion bread. I make it weekly and its great!

Hey fairygirl! Well, when I first took the "bread" out of the dehydrater, I thought it was pretty good. But after that, I didn't like it so much.
However, I think that is due to not having perfected it yet. I chopped the onion in my food processor which made 1/2 of it sort of watery. I also didn't grind the sunflower seeds enough. Plus I have a cruddy dehydrater and made it too thick.
There is a thread about the onion bread lurking around here. I would read that first before making it so you don't waste food. Quite a few people remarked that he has good recipes but that the ingredient amounts are a tad off. I like the idea of upping the sunflower and flax to a cup. Otherwise I think I would use less onion. Someone suggest a bit of maple syrup which might help with the horrible "onion breath" I experienced! :rolleyes:
I've been looking through his book yesterday and have noticed him using the onion bread a lot!! So, I think I will give it another shot (I think I need "uncooking" lessons!). I am looking at making the zuchini hummus tonight so I am hoping that will turn out. Need a good food experience to make me more confident.

By the way Heather, I think it's funny that you read my blog because I have been reading yours as well! :p
I noticed you have been having good results with recipes and the names sound yummy. Which recipes are you using? Alissa's...others? Just curious if you don't mind sharing.

Hey Shannon (salsababy)
LoL, thats halarious that we have been reading each other's journals :) yours is the only one i read.
thanks for the tips on the onion bread and i will search for the thread on it.
i did make his zucchini hummus and it turned out really well - i enjoyed so much. i also made a big batch of salsa at the same time. so i ate both in romaine lettuce leaves = delish!
ive been using Matt's recipes, Alissa's, Juliano's, but a lot of my own too. often i use the other recipes for inspiration and then create with what i have and whatever comes to my imagination :) i also have 2 of gabriel cousens books with great recipes altho havent made anything yet. im hoping to soon!

I dont know how you guys make sushi. I love the stuff and back when I was making it with cooked rice and veggies it never rolled properly. It was so messy and was a disgrace to all sushi lovers LOL. It didnt even look like sushi rolls.. It looked like sushi octagons LOL or something :rolleyes:
