Raw: Day 13

Leftover Orange Chia Seed Pudding. This was still orange zesty! Thankfully it didn't get stronger over the weekend in the fridge.

Leftover Pear Fennel Soup and lots of walnuts


Dinner: VEGGIE BURGER with "French Fries!"

This is by far the most intense entree I have met thus far and it was SO worth it. (And 4 times more worth it for leftovers.)

Everything is raw! The fries are sliced jicama with fresh ketchup.

This is great comfort meal on the raw diet. I feel full without the gross "I ate way too much" belly.

The blended mixture.

1/2 c. flaxseed, ground
2 cups soaked pecans (or sunflower seed, walnuts or hazel nuts)
2 TBS lemon juice
1/4 water as needed (I needed about 1 c)
1 c. diced carrot
1 c. diced onion
4 TBS basil, minced
2 TBS dill, minced (I used 1/2 tsp dried)
1 TBS jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, minced

First, combine the flaxeed, nuts and lemon juice in a food processor (blender) to make a creamy peanut butter consistency. Then combine the rest of the ingredients.

Place on dehydrator trays and dry for 8-12 hours at 115 degrees.

I used the cabbage as a bun. My pieces were really curved, which made them like little shells to contain all the goodies!

Apple Flax Bread

I have no idea what the consistency is supposed to be like for dehydrated bread. I think it's okay, but obviously it's not bread! I had 2 squares of this today and although it's good, I don't think it was worth the work. Disaster struck on this recipe.

My blender ate my wooden spoon! I couldn't find the pieces so I sorted through all the dough by hand and found what I thought was a piece of wood. Turns out, it was a piece of date! I did find one of the two pieces. Either I'll find the other piece when I eat the bread or it got blended up!

After I had the bread spread out on the parchment paper, I discovered I forgot the sunflower seeds. I wasn't sure if that would significantly alter the recipe, so I scraped off the dough, added the seeds, and then got everything ready to go again.

Next time, I will make Flax Crackers.
