Raw Veggie Snack Cracker
(Pictured with Guacamole)
Looking for more alternatives to wheat, I wanted to try and find a new dehydrated raw snack cracker. I did some experimenting, and this recipe is just what I was hoping for! Similar to the Red Hot Snackers recipe but a bit different, and savory, but not hot.
2 cups raw sunflower seeds (soaked in water for at least 4 hours)
1 cup almond meal (flour)
3 Tbs. whole flax seed
2 tsp. sea salt
1 large garlic clove, sliced
1 small purple onion, sliced
1/2 large sweet red bell pepper, sliced
1 med. tomato cut up
3 Tbs. fresh parsley cut
Drain the sunflower seeds. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Let it stand for about 10 minutes. Place the contents in your food processor and pulse. Continue to process, stopping periodically to push down the sides. When the consistency holds together well, and looks similar to the photo on the left you are ready to fill your dehydrator trays.
Place a few large spoonfuls of the mixture onto a teflex or parchment lined dehydrator tray. Roll thin—about 1/4 inch thick. (Score with a knife to make square shapes either now or when you flip them.) Dehydrate @ 140 degrees for 1 hour (or skip this step and use a lower temperature), then lower temperature to 105 degrees, and dry for approx. 6 hours. Flip onto an unlined tray and remove the teflex sheet. Dry for an additional 4 hours, or until done.
Keeping them refrigerated or frozen will help keep them fresh and crispy.
