View Full Version : Onion Bread Recipe?
Any body have a recipe for onion bread? I used to have one that called for a bunch of vidalia onion and I think flax seeds. When I dehydrated it, it was more flat like a cracker than like a slice of bread.

I got mine from Matt Amsden's Rawvolution. It took me a few times to get it right but here is my adaptation.
3 yellow onions sliced into rings on the slicing disk in your cuisinart or else on a mandolin. Set aside in a large bowl.
1 cup flax seeds that are ground up in a coffee/spice grinder. You need to get them ground up well and a food processer won't cut it for this (learned this the hard way). Maybe a blender if you don't have a coffee grinder.
1 cup sunflower seeds.
1/2 cup olive oil.
1/2 cup nama shoyu.
Chop up sunflower seeds in cuisinart - I add the flax seeds (that have already been ground up in a coffee grinder) to this mixture along with the olive oil, nama shoyu, and a couple of handfuls of the onion rings.
Add this paste to the bowl of onion rings and mix it up - usually with my hands - and then spread it out onto one teflex sheet. I try to use up most of the teflex sheet but not more than that cause you need it to be thick enough to stay together. Dehydrate at 105 for 24 hrs then flip onto mesh sheet for another 12 hrs.
It's delicious. I just took a batch out of the dehydrator this morning!
MMMM That sounds better than the old one I had. Can't wait to pull out the dehydrator. Thanks so very much.

here's a thread from last year with some great advice:

here is another variation of onion bread ... carrots give it a completely different taste, and there is no nama shoyu. If you prefer the nama shoyu taste, sub a bit of that in place of the salt.
1½ pounds Carrots, whole
1½ pounds Onions (Spanish, Brown), weight after prep.
¾ cup Flax Seed, soak as directed below
⅓ cup Olive Oil (cold pressed, unfiltered)
½ tablespoon Salt
Soak Flax seeds in a pint glass filed with water for 30 minutes before using.
While they’re soaking, process the Onions (quartered) in your Food Processor (FP) with the finest (smallest) slicing blade. (not the chopping/normal ‘S’ blade). Should make long thin strips/slices of onions. (Julienne) Set aside in very, very large bowl.
Change your FP blade to the finest grating blade you have and process the Carrots. Add to the bowl with the sliced Onions.
If soak time has passed. Put soaked Flax Seeds and the soak Water into your Blender. Refill the pint glass with water and add that water to blender also. Blend for just a bit, it will become a thick gel/cream with a few whole flax seeds and bits of all sizes.
Pour Flax cream blend into bowl with Onions and Carrots. Add the Olive Oil and the Salt. Stir very well with large spoon. Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. While waiting cover 3 Excalibur dehydrator trays with cling film or use teflex sheets.
Divide your mixture evenly between the 3 trays and spread out evenly on each one, just less than a half inch thick. Place into Dehydrator and run until dried well on top. Flip onto normal uncovered trays and continue to dehydrate until almost crispy. It’s best to cut it about two hours after you flip it before it gets too crispy.
As an option, try stopping one tray before it dries all the way and leave those squares more flexible.
The onion carrot combo sounds interesting, I'll have to try it sometime soon.
