here's what i just popped into my dehydrator
and i can't wait till it's done!!!!
thought i'd repost it for the new rawbies
THE famous Onion bread
2 1/2 lbs sweet onions, peeled
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
1 cup ground golden flax seeds
1/2 cup olive oil
3 oz. Nama Shoyu
Put onions in food processor with 's' blade and process until small pieces, (but not mush). Put in mixing bowl with the other ingredients and mix thoroughly. The flax will absorb liquid. Smooth onto 2 teflex sheets* about 1/4" thick and place in dehydrator for 5 hours, turning over for another 3-4 hours or until dry and crispy. Either break into pieces or cut with a pizza cutter, and store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
*If you don't have an Excalibur dehydrator, any type will do - just use natural unbleached parchment paper instead of the teflex sheets.
I've made the above recipe replacing the oil with a mixture of avocado, water and about 2 tbs oil blended up in food processor. Worked great!
Melís no-oil version:
1 cup ground flax
1/3 cup whole flax
1/2 cup ground sesame
1/3 cup whole sesame
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 lbs. onions
no oil, no salt
song in my heart & tears running down my face (chopped 2.5#s of onion)
knowing tomorrow i will feast.
i even have 'refried beans' in the fridge as a topper
boy is life good!!!
