EQUIPMENT

Baking trays x2, teflon sheets x2, or baking paper, mixing bowl,

spatula and knife


OVEN preheat to 140 degrees Celsius or 284 degrees Fahrenheit



INGREDIENTS ¾ cup golden linseed (flaxseed) ¼ cup flax meal * (see note) ¼ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds) ¼ cup sunflower seeds ¼ cup white sesame seeds ¼ cup hemp seeds ¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes 1 tbsp black sesame seeds 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tbsp dried onion flakes 1 ½ tsp dried oregano and thyme 1 tsp dried chives 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt ¼ tsp chilli or cayenne pepper ¼ tsp vegeta (seasoning) ¼ tsp spirulina (optional) 1 1/4 cup purified water Salt flakes as a topping (optional)



VARIATION Add 1 ½ cups vegetable pulp left over from juicing (optional) Replace some of the water with freshly made vegetable juice.


METHOD • Place all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. • Add the vegetable pulp (optional) otherwise add the water ¼ cup at a time. You may not need all the liquid if you are using pulp. Mix to incorporate all the ingredients. Mixture should be firm and moist. Let the mixture rest for at least 20 minutes. Resting the mixture allows the linseed to expand and absorb the liquid creating a gel like substance that helps as a binder. • Line baking trays with Teflon sheets or baking paper. • Divide the mixture between the two trays and spread out evenly and thinly using a spatula to smooth it out. • Take a sharp knife press down gently, and score into cracker shapes.

• Pinch salt flakes between your fingers and sprinkle over the crackers if you like. • Place trays second from the bottom rung of your oven.

Bake at 140 degrees C or 284 degrees F for approximately 45 – 60 minutes.

Cooking them on a low temperature ensures slow even baking without burning the crackers. Check after 30 mins. If the crackers feel firm when you touch them remove the tray from the oven and gently flip the crackers over, return trays to the oven for another 20 -30 mins. • Check for doneness they should feel firm and crisp. Remove from the oven, break up the crackers carefully with a knife or your hands. • Leave them on the tray to cool completely.

• Store in airtight containers. • These crackers may also be dehydrated.


*NOTE: Flax meal can be made by placing linseeds in a blender or seed grinder and blending to form a flour. Or you can buy flax meal at a health store or the health section at the super market.
