THE SECRET IS THE SWEET!
Most dehydrated crackers have the savory but not the sweet, and that will leave you feeling as if something is missing. So, check out this recipe. Also, you must add lots and lots of seasoning. The dehydrating process most likely seems to dissipate the effects of the aromatic oils of the spices. So, you have to use much more than you would imagine. I do not use any Bragg's or Nama Shoyu in my crackers due to the effects of heating soy which appears to create an MSG-like substance.
3 cups flax seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
SOAK THE SEEDS FOR 24 HOURS.
ADD WATER TO FLAX SEVERAL TIMES
TO KEEP IT HYDRATED!
1 medium onion
1/2 cup chopped peppers
1 Tbsp. Herb de provence
4 Tbsp. Fajita seasoning
2 Tbsp. Taco Seasoning
2 Tbsp. Garlic Herbs
2 Tbsp. Agave
1 tsp. Sea Salt
There are several steps, but once you get the
hang of it you can vary these with any seasoning,
nuts or seeds that you enjoy!
1) Soak all nuts or seeds for 24 hours.
2) Keep the flax hydrated.
3) Discard all water that was used for soaking.
4) Use 1 cup flax and a bit of the sunflower seeds
and the pumpkin seeds. Grind these in a food processor
or a Vitamix (I prefer the Vitamix).
5) Now mix everything together in the largest
bowl you've got! That's right hand mix
6) Cover your dehydrator trays with Teflex sheets,
the new Silicon sheets, or parchment paper.
I DISCOVERED THAT MY CRACKERS ARE READY MUCH
FASTER WHEN I PREPARE THEM ON PARCHMENT PAPER!
7) Use a small ice cream scooper or a dessert tablespoon
and place a small scoop of the cracker mix on the sheet.
Scoop as many on each sheet as you can, leaving room in
between to flatten them.
8) Flatten your crackers if you like them thin, or
give them a gentle press if you would like them thicker.
Option: Make larger crackers that are very thick and they
become like a piece of bread that you can place pate, sprouts
vegetables in between!
9) Remember to put love into your crackers!!!
10) Dehydrate for 10 hours (approx) and then flip
your crackers over. When flipping the crackers, remove the
parchment paper, or Teflex sheet. Place your "flipped"
cracker on the bare tray. Yes, it dehydrates better
11) Dehydrate for another 6 hours.
