Spicy Flax / Chia Crackers

Spicy Flax and Chia Crackers

Spicy Flax and Chia Crackers

The consistency of these crackers is so perfectly thin and crispy and the spicy/salty factor is just right.  Follow the water and seed ratio exactly and then feel free to play with the spices for even more fun customizations.

2 Cups Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds or a blend of both (I prefer half of each)

4 Cups Water

Soak the seeds in the 4 cups of water until gelatinous (at least an hour or overnight)

Take 2 Cups of the seed/water gel and blend with 3 Cups of additional water until smooth.  Pour this mixture into a large mixing bowl and repeat the process for the remaining 2 cups of the seed/water gel.

Now blend the following spices in about 1 cup of water:

1.5″ Ginger (fresh, peeled and cut into chunks)

4 Cloves Garlic

1.5 Tbsp Chili Powder

1 Tbsp SunFire Salt (or a bit less than this if you don’t like things too salty)

1/2 tsp Cayenne

1-4 Tbsp fresh peppers (bell, habanero, jalapeno – depending on how spicy you like it)

Add the blended spices to the bowl and stir thoroughly until well mixed.

Famous Onion Bread

onion breadIt’s not just Onion Bread, it’s Famous Onion Bread.  This is another awesome recipe from Matt Amsden’s RAWvolution Recipe Book and I particularly like the added feature of forming the onion bread into little “birds’ nest” shapes as a quiche crust.  More on that later.

First of all, here’s how to make the Famous Onion Bread. :)

***

Famous Onion Bread

6 Yellow Onions (medium to large size)

3 Cups Flax Seed ground into a flour in a high speed blender or food processor

3 Cups Sunflower Seeds ground into a flour in a high speed blender or food processor (if you soak them first, be sure to let them dry so they can be more flour like)

2 Cups Nama Shoyu (raw soy sauce – *see other options below)

1 1/3 Cup Olive Oil

Tomato “Pizza” Crackers

Tomato CrackersOK, we have a new favorite Flax cracker.  The Green Crackers used to be  our favorite, and we still make them now and again, but these tomato crackers (“The Red Crackers”) are so flavorfully awesome that they’ve taken the #1 spot.

What’s more, we found a way of making a yummy pizza-like treat with these crackers, earning them even more kudos.

You will need a dehydrator to pull this recipe off, but it’s worth it! Plus, then you can make the green crackers and nori rolls and all sorts of other yummy treats that last a good long time.

Many thanks to my current favorite raw food book, Raw Food/Real World by Sarma Melngailis and Matthew Kenney for this recipe.  My only changes to their original were more sun dried tomatoes and a specific quantity of specific herbs and superfoods to get that pizza flavor every time.

Tomato Pizza Crackers

5 Cups Walnuts (soaked 1 hour and rinsed)

1 Tbsp Sun Fire Salt

1.5 Tbsp Basil (dried – use more if you have fresh available)

1.5 Tbsp Oregano (ditto above)

1.5 Tbsp Marjoram (ditto above)

1.5 Tbsp Fiesta Mole Superfood Powder

5 Cups Zucchini (cut into small chunks)

2 Cups Sun Dried Tomatoes

4 Green Onions chopped

1 Cup Flax Seeds finely ground

1/2 Cup Hemp Seeds

1/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast (optional, and it makes it slightly cheesy)

1/3 Cup Lemon Juice

1/2 Cup Water

Tomato Flax Crackers

I tried this recipe once.  It was OK.  I’d suggest adding some more spice to it.  Really, I like my Green Flax Crackers so much, I haven’t bothered trying any other kinds again.  Still, maybe you will prefer this version:

Tomato Spice Crackers
This recipe makes 2 trays of crackers for your dehydrator. To create more trays of crackers simply repeat the recipe process since the seed gel and spice mix blends best in this small batch size.

1¼ Cups pure water

½ Cup Golden Flax Seeds

¼ tsp Sun Fire Salt

1 Tbsp Tomato Concentrate Flakes or Sun Dried Tomatoes

½ tsp Cumin powder

¼ tsp Cayenne pepper powder
