A delicious RAW onion cracker recipe.

In keeping with my goal of consuming between 30% and 50% raw foods this year I thought that I would post a very interesting recipe that I found on Dr Mercola's site a few weeks ago. Raw Onion Bread is more like a cracker than a bread but don't be shied away by the name, this is delicious! Reminiscent of old fashioned onion soup mix straight from the package, it is full flavored and is great with just about any savory topping you can come up with - hummus, tomato salsa, guacamole, etc.

You will need a dehydrator (or you might be able to dry it in your oven, but most ovens do not go low enough. Remember this is to be RAW, not just dried)

3 large onions, red or yellow sliced very fine or chopped in a food processor very fine.
3/4 c. flax seeds, ground
3/4 c raw sunflower seeds, ground
1/2 c. Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or you could use regular soy sauce)
1/3 c. organic cold pressed olive oil.

Combine all ingredients and mix well by a hand.

Spread the batter out to approx 1/4 inch thickness onto dehydrator trays. You will need some kind of a flat sheet that covers the plastic screen on most dehydrators. They can usually be bought as an accessory to your brand of dehydrator.

Set on 115 degrees and leave for about 12 hours or overnight. Check in the morning and if ready turn over and dry another 12 hours.

When ready it will be crispy and you can cut it or break it into pieces and serve or store for later.
