View Full Version : Quick dehydrator recipes - flax crackers
I've had a dehydrator since christmas but have barely used it as I dont have a lot of free time to prepare complicated recipes. That's my problem with a living foods diet. I'm inclined just to live on salads which are quick and easy to prepare while the dehydrator sits and gathers dust :) I'm looking for some favourite recipe for flax crackers. Can you make them spicy jalapeno peppers etc? What consistency should they be. Should they be really thin and brittle or soft and pliable?
Any other quick and easy dehydrator recipe ideas?
I tried making the onion bread recipe that someone posted a couple of months ago. It was beautiful although probably a bit overpowering for everyone else in the house. lol

Pizza-Licious Bread, Cracker or Crust
from forthcoming book Hooked on Raw - Book 2
due out in 2006
1 cup almond pulp
1/2 cup golden flaxseed
1 small zucchini or cucumber
1/4 cup onion
1/2 tsp. Celic sea salt
1) Put all the ingredients into a food processor and utilizing the "S" blade, blend well. You might have to add in a little water, but do it a tbsp at a time, so as not to add in too much.
2) Transfer the dough to a Teflex-lined dehydrator tray and with your hands mold it into a circle or square shape, approx. 1/8 to 1/4" thick. If you are making it for a pizza base, crimp up the edges all around.
3) Put dough into the dehydrator at 95° F overnight or until dry, but still flexible. If you let it dehydrate longer, it becomes a cracker.
Yield: one pizza crust (base for building a pizza) or 6 generous crackers.
I tried this recipe and it turned out great. Go to "SEARCH" and type
in "FLAX SEED" and you should find some more

Does the flax get soaked?

I have 3 trays of flaxseed crackers going right now in the dehydrator. I soaked a ton of brown and golden flaxseeds together last night, about 8 cups worth. You should add a lot of water because they absorb it and become slimy.
I followed Alissa's recipe for flaxseed crackers and modified it to make other crackers. Alissa's takes two cups flaxseeds, 1 tsp garlic, bragg's and something else, don't remember.
Then I did her carrot flaxseed one. That has ground sunflower seeds and a few other things like parsley and celery.
Then I added cinnamon and honey to another batch (last week added raisins to it too).
You really have to experiment to find what you like.

Tim- Gotta start using the dehyrator more. I use mine almost daily - I don't know how you could eat raw without it. I make granola bars, cereal, crackers, and warm up soups (I just don't like cold soup). My granola bar recipe is on a strin started last month - not 100% raw (I sadly found out), but pretty close. Enjoy!
