Recipe Directions

1. Peel and halve the onions. Slice in a food processor (with slicing disc).

2. Place onions in large bowl and mix with the rest of ingredients until thoroughly combined.

3. Spread mix over a Teflex sheet and repeat until all of mixture is used (I usually end up using 2 sheets).

4. Dehydrate at 100° Fahrenheit for 24 hours. Flip and return to dehydrator for 12 hours.

5. Cut into 9 equal pieces (2 cuts horizontally, 2 cuts vertically).

Kandace's Thoughts

By kandace

This is an easy, flavorful bread than can be used to make sandwiches, to dip, or to eat alone. This is an easy recipe for variations!

Pictured with hummus and tomatoes and a side of spinach Caesar salad.

Based on a recipe by Matt Amsden in RAWVolution.

I’ve made a few changes: the paste to onion ratio has been boosted for a thicker consistency, and the nama shoyu percentage is decreased for taste.

This was the first bread I made. It is a great bread and I love dipping it in raw hummus.

I just made this bread and the smell is heavenly! My questions have been answered by all of you! thanks!Of couse since I made it w/ 2 large purple onions and the full amount of nama(I used Braggs), I will have onion breath for days and suffer the too much salt problem. i'll look forward to next week's modifications!

Here is a little tip when making this to keep it from becoming "The Crying Bread".

In your work area light a candle or two, try not to burn yourself, but put it close to wherever the onion mixture is, and the candles will absorb some of onion's aroma and help prevent you from crying. It will not completely stop it but it will prevent most of the tears that onions cause when you peel and cut them up.

If you have a gas stove you can also set up your work area next to that and turn on a burner on and this will help also.

It's an old wives trick but it works fairly well.

It makes a huge difference to use sweet onions. Totally different experience. So very yummy!

I just made my first bread in my new dehydrator using this recipe. It was incredible. I will never eat dead bread again. I took some out this morning before it was completely dried and the chewy onions were divine. You have to make this bread.

I just got my excaliber in the mail and this was my first dehydrated raw recipe! I love that it´s really easy to make and doesn´t use many ingredients. Whoo, it´s really oniony though, I suppose it´s a good thing I like onions. I only used one and a half, but they were really big. I can see this recipe as having many many possibilities!

bq. Surprisingly though I ate at Euphoria Loves Rawvolution in Santa Monica (Matt Amsden’s place) the other day and had the famous Big Matt with Cheese and the Onion bread they use is nothing like this recipe at all.

This is definitely a different version of the recipe that was inspired by Matt's original recipe. Interesting to hear the comparison - I've changed it so many times throughout various attempts that I wasn't sure how different it had become.

I love this recipe though it drives my wife crazy since my entire home smells like onions for two days.

Surprisingly though I ate at Euphoria Loves Rawvolution in Santa Monica (Matt Amsden's place) the other day and had the famous Big Matt with Cheese and the Onion bread they use is nothing like this recipe at all. I think they liquefied the onions quite a bit and changed around the ingredients some. Personally I like the recipe posted here better since the restaurants were kinda bland.

It might help to call it Bragg Liquid Aminos...an all purpose seasoning from soy protein. Bragg also makes an apple cider vinegar. You might google "Paul Bragg" to find out more about this remarkable man.

briansculpt: nama shoyu is a type of soy sauce. I'm not sure how to describe Braggs except that it is similar in taste.

This tasted like that "bloomin' onion" at Outback Steakhouse! Fantastic! I was snatching off pieces from inside the dehydrator before it was even done.....

briansculpt: Braggs is apple cider vinegar, and Nama Shoyu is unpasteurized soy sauce (it has wheat in it). Tamari is soy sauce with no wheat.

This is definately a "show off to your non-raw friends" recipe. Mine came out like fried, crispy hashbrowns. Very good.

What is a good substitute in recipes for nama shoyu/tamari/Braggs? These condiments give me a splitting headache and other wierd side effects, and I need to find a healthier alternative to use in my recipes. Will a pinch of salt or miso work instead? Or maybe dulse flakes?

This bread is amazing! I omitted the braggs and added a little cumin. I had to eat two pieces. I left it somewhat thick so I could use it for veggie-burgers this week. I have a circular dehydrator which wasn't a problem. I usually just shape all my bread into round slices and it spreads much more even when it has a tad more water in the mix. Thanks for this great recipe!

Now this is why I am so happy I have a dehydrator! Thanks Kandace, you have won me some new friends!

Yummy... I almost took a bit out of my monitor. I'll have to wait for a few weeks until I have access to a dehydrator. Meantime this is on my list of must try. Thanks Kandace.

I have this bread drying now. If anyone has problems with it crumbling, add water little by liitle. I promise it will work, I had consistency issues, as this was my fisrt time using this recipe. I've made seed bread before that doesn't call for ground flax and sunflower seeds. The bread spreads easier with gound seeds and I'm certain will be easier to chew. I can't wait to make this again. I want to vary the recipe next time, maybe add some herbs.

Made my first batch last night with two onions chopped in the food processor. Had a sandwich with avocado for dinner. It was heavenly. Tonight I'm making a sweet bread using agave nectar (1/4 cup), cinnamon and some ginger. Hope it's good.

Just threw mine together, and for the second batch I layered tomato with basil and garlic on the bottom then squished the onion batter on the top. Hopefully it comes out the way I planned, but even now it smells fantastic in my house! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this bread and it was divine! I used sea salt instead of nama shoyu. Also, it worked better for me to dice the onion by hand. This was my first raw bread/cracker. It actually tasted like the real thing, better even!

Greenie,

I've just made it again and used 2 1/2 cups onion. The difference this time is that I diced them rather than sliced them. I chopped them by hand to a fine dice and I think this is going to work out better.
