Recipe Directions

1. mix veg pulp, ground sunflower, flax oil. i used a wooden spoon, but if you have FP, feel free.

2. season with salt and pepper. mix in.

3. spread it on your teflex sheet for dehydrator. Or for the not so equipped like me, an oven pan coated with aluminium foil…look at picture for clearer description.

4. fun part! season with seasonings ( chose whatever you like, its versatile!) for me, the more the better. i just chucked here and there until it looked pretty.

5. take your torn basil and stuff it here and there. bring out the artist!

6. half the cherry toms and squirt the seeds randomly around the bread, then stuff the skins here and there.

7. i put it in the oven for 16 hours or so on 50-60 degrees. keep touching it and the pan and the railings and everything in the oven to make sure nothing is too painfully hot.

8. i’m sure dehydrators are more efficient…yeah…should get one. its calling “come buy me….”..AHHH! anyways, enjoy!

Ilikenuts's Thoughts

One smell seems to send me straight to the mediterranean, one bite and i feel like a sunshine garden burst in my mouth! i could’nt stop nibbling on these things, putting it everywhere from salads, soups to just wrapping it around a cucumber stick.

the texture takes getting used to but let it sit in your container for a while (like overnight) after dehydration, gradually it will soften and taste like wholegrain bread sliced thin. I used an oven on the lowest temperature…basically a light, with the door ajar.

it is especially nice dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar…yummy! soaks up real quick! and so full of fibre, sweeping your insides clean in hyper speed.

My idea of dehydrating: look for a plastic tray, I use the ones in which carrots are sold, but anything like that will do. Put a layer of oil on the tray, than pread the batter of the bread on it, and that's it! Let it dry for whatever time is needed for it to be cruncy and yummy

hi ilikenuts - posted a dehydrator pic on Almost Heaven recipe. I have two levels,

three counting plexi half top. Why half? This release moisture (somewhat).The gatorboard Full Top makes for convient insulation and not only moveable viewing but Temp Adjustment, how wild is that? My light is a "canned" 60w bulb. Now, just use what you have say, no plexi on hand (i build and invent so huge inventory)just use paper towel / bread, no aluminum foil - a superior reflector is inside foil lining potato chip bags! No wood dowels? Use paper towl cardboard rolls - combine, slice and compress, cardboard is very resilent and when compressed, very very strong. We rolled an auto over a cardboard bridge in eng'g school, built domes (used wax to waterproof)and furniture from boxes - (i have been kicked from the best schools in country!)No lightbulb? Tilt toward sunshine and just use clear top - surprising in wintertime I have used my SunOven (to dehydrate rather than "cook")

zhanna8 - credit really goes to the old number 15 issue of MotherEarth News, we used thin plywood and a adjustable rheostat and glass top, my recent need was primed from another fellow raw builder. VALUABLE tip, the plexi tends to "weep"moisture, CAUTION: slightly keep lid on tilt or just monitor closely. Gator and plexi may top separately and pull gator back to check on the goodies without releasing heat!Thanks for the comment - I use photovoltaics, ride an electric motorscooter, and catch rainwater though, this healthy web site and beautiful people, puts all those altruistic (fun) things to shame!

Great simple recipe. DEHYDRATE on the cheap - made one yesterday in fact: nice thick wall cardboard box(holes or slots for dowel tray holders), dowel or wooden broomsticks, aluminum foil (tape to sides and bottom), 60W light bulb (CAUTION: if your box is well built, this can cause bulb to possibly burn your exposed/touching flammable materials) note: i used a leftover window screen and frame cut to fit, cover with waxpaper, old baking sheet for bottom pan - both seem equally suited for dehydration use. i also use a safety (heavy oven grill to separate the light can from the top "tray". OK - Merry Christmas!!

mine is in a spotlight "can")for top I recycled an insulated piece of gatorboard(art or dollar tree sources) PLUS I USE a Half cover of plexi (so as to monitor dehydrate progress) WORKS VERY WELL ... your cost in basically ingenuity and household materials!
