crazy carrot bread
light and crisp
3 cup carrots,shredded fine, approx.6 carrots
1 cup onion,thinly sliced, about 1/2 large onion
1 cup whole golden flax seed, soaked a few hours in 1 cup water
or use ground flax seed
2 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon salt, or more to taste
spirulina,or finely ground herbs, for decoration,if desired
stencil,make or buy one, for decoration,if desired
1.soak and grind(or grind and soak!) flax seeds.
2.in food processor,use fine slicing blade for onion,and fine shredder blade for carrots.
3.combine flax,carrots,onion,oil,and salt in bowl and mix well.
4.let mixture stand a while if it seems too wet.
5.roll out,1/4” thick onto teflex,and score, or shape as i did using a sandwich keeper,found in supermarket food storage or bread isle or kitchen supply store.the lid has an indentation,perfect to make smaller bread,lay food wrap down first,and fill with heaping tablespoon of mixture,smooth with back of spoon.lift out wrap and flip onto teflex,remove wrap and stencil if desired,lay stencil down on dough and sprinkle a tiny amount of spirulina or herbs over stencil,rub into openings with clean finger, or pastry brush.
6.dehydrate 12 hours at 115 degrees ,or as desired.
flip when 3/4 dry and break apart crackers when dry ,to avoid curling.
also in picture,i love using rubber rings that fit on the rolling pin to get exact thickness .they range from 1/16” to 3/8” thickness .
the bottom of the sandwich keeper makes a nice cutter for larger bread,and there is also a “crust cutter” i use to make bread shaped…bread!( cut before dehydrating ,leave the scraps in place)
i also use a large smooth roller for fondant, it is a few inches longer than the teflex sheet.
this is the way the breads pictured in my vegan velveeta recipe were made:)
