View Full Version : Bread Alternatives
07-11-2011, 11:36 PM
So I like making healthy sandwiches. It's an effective way to have a satisfying meal. Wheat bread is not the best choice so I was wondering what you guys use as an alternative. By the way what's up with whole rye bread? I've read it's good but not easy to find. Thank you.

when i am in the mood for a sandwich, i whip up a raw bread using my dehydrator (well, whip up is a bad term since it takes many hours).. you can find lots of recipes online... it is super easy to do!

I like to use leaf vegetables. Here is a list of common vegetable leaf's:
I prefer Collard leaf because it is tough, strong and resists tearing.
A leaf is good flat or rolled up.
Romaine is a good tasting leaf.

Yes, you can make many recipe. Juliano has a good one. Allissa new book might also some in them. She came up with a nice bagel recipe, i am not sure if she published it. You will fine many on line.
As for sandwich, i find it works best with wrap. You can make a vegetable wrap. Elena love has an amazing recipe and she has a dvd.
I like best using coconut wrap. Young coconut meat, enough water to blend (i don't use the coconut water because i don't want it too sweet, i drink the coconut water instead) and add a pinch of himalayan salt or sea salt. Dehydrate about 10 hours or until ready.
It is absolutely delicious. A lot of work due that you need to open the coconut but it doesn't take me that long now.
I believe you can also purchase the coconut wrap on line. Upayal and natural has them.
I use a piece of nori to hold my sandwich together.
For the bread, i eat it plain or with raw honey. You can spread a pate on it.

breads are the only thing that have me leaning towards a dehydrator! There don't seem to be pre-made raw breads easily available in the uk ... as far as I am aware.

Alissa has a burger bun (or, is it the bagel?) I think it is in her first book. Making a sandwich with it is so totally satisfying.

RawDawg Rory's zucchini onion bread is good. i just finished mine yesterday. Good with mock tuna salad. It was my first ever bread, so I'm excited to try new recipes.

There's a new thing called paleobread that you might want to look at. It's definitely not raw by any means and I don't eat it but we're all in our own journey of transition so if it helps to get from a (SAD) to b (raw vegan) than it could be something to look at. I know Russel James has some amazing fluffy raw bread he makes. I show a review of it on our site.
Other than that I like to make flax/almond meal/chia bread with spices thrown in.

You might like to try this raw recipe. I don't make dehydrator foods at the moment coz I have no electricity but I am busy getting everyone at work addicted to kale chips on the off chance that I will then be able to dehydrate there - but I digress. http://nouveauraw.com/raw-recipies/breads-wraps/honey-oat-bread-winner/ I showed the recipe to rob on here and he says it's fab and he's a bread king!
