Have I told ya'll how much I adore flax crackers? I don't think I have. If I was stranded on the proverbial deserted island with only one raw food, I'd choose flax crackers all day long. Now if I had a chance to choose cooked foods over raw on that deserted island, I'd probably opt for something else ... but pretend that's not an option.
Since I'm the proud owner of a new Excalibur dehydrator (thanks mama and daddy!), I can make all the flax crackers my little heart desires. That's what I did this weekend. I made these Flax Crackers from The Raw Revolution Diet:
They're made from golden flax seeds, ground brown flax, red bell pepper, zucchini, and lots of spices. The mixture is processed and thinly spread on a Teflex sheet. Then they're dehydrated for, like, ever. I think it took a full 24 hours to make these. But it was so worth the wait. And I made a crap ton so there's plenty for snackin'.
I served some crackers with this Sprouted Lentil Pate with Garlic and Herbs, also from The Raw Food Revolution:
This is a combo of sprouted lentils (which I sprouted in a jar for several days), basil, parsley, garlic, and some other stuff. Very tasty spread on the crackers! And of course, I served it all with a big ole' side salad.
Today marks the last week on my 26-day Adventure Cleanse Tune-Up. It's been fun, but I will certainly be glad when its over. I'm ready to get back to testing recipes for my cookbook, and I cannot wait for a sip of delicious coffee.
