Recipe for Onion-Olive-Oregano (Raw) Bread (Gluten-free)(Vegan)(Living)




Today I put together some "Fried Onions" to pop into the dehydrator and found that I had both a lot of onion bits and buckwheat crispies flour left over from dredging the onions.  I am not one to "waste" (Food Safe's "when in doubt, throw it out" rule really doesn't work for me).  So, using a couple of recipes for raw onion breads that I found on the internet, I put together this one (and it was delicious baby!):
  • 4 C. Sweet Onions, peeled, quartered
  • 1 can sliced Black Olives (pitted)
  • 1 C. Buckwheat Crispies Flour
  • 1 C. Flax seeds
  • 1 T. organic Oregano flakes
  • Celtic Sea Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method:

  • Put onions and Olives in food processor with 'S' blade and process until well processed, but not mushy.
  • Grind up 1 C. of Buckwheat Crispies, either in the blender or in a coffee bean grinder and put into a large mixing bowl
  • Grind of the Flax seeds next into meal and put into the bowl
  • Shake on the Oregano and add the Celtic Sea Salt (be light-handed)
  • Add in the Olive Oil and the Onions and Olives. Mix well. The Flaxseed will absorb any of the liquids from the onions and olives.
  • Smooth with a spatula, about 1/4 inch thick, onto a teflex sheet, and place in your dehydrator for 5 hours at 105 degrees.
  • Flip and dehydrate without the teflex sheet for another 3-5 hours, or until you are satisfied with the state of "done-ness".
  • When dried, cut with a good pizza cutter into bread or cracker-size pieces.
  • Store in the fridge in bags or other airtight containers.
  • Try not to eat it all in one sitting.
  • Try not to make it more than three times a week. (just kidding)
