Super Simple Sandwiches

One of my favorite raw breads has to be Lisa's raw onion bread. I make a few changes but it is about the same process. I add about 2 cups of leftover carrot pulp from our carrot juice and she uses just 2 shredded carrots. I prefer the texture you get when using carrot pulp; it gives it a more bread-like texture. I also omit the salt and use less oil, substituting flax oil for her olive oil.
Here is Lisa's recipe from, with my adjustments put in parenthesis:

1 cup ground flax seeds

1 cup water

3 medium onions, thinly sliced

2 large carrots, grated (I use 2 C carrot pulp)

1 teaspoon salt (I omit)

3 tablespoons olive oil (I use 1 T Flax oil)

Mix together the ground flax seeds and water. Let sit for several minutes to gel. Slice the onions very thinly and grate the carrots (I used the food processor for both). Stir together and add the salt. Spread out on lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for about an hour. When top is a bit dry to the touch, flip and continue drying on the other side. Let dry another couple hours until dry but not brittle. I used kitchen scissors to cut the bread into shapes.

 Making raw bread, for me, is not an exact science. You just toss in ingredients and mix until you get the consistency you like when spreading it onto the dehydrator's Teflex sheets. I like how each and every batch turns out a little bit different.
 Here is my post about making her bread along with a spinach guacamole dip recipe of mine.
To top my sandwiches I simply sliced one small Haas avocado and added thinly sliced tomatoes, garnishing with my homegrown broccoli sprouts. Super simple!

Having a stash of this amazing raw bread in the freezer is a must. So when I make a batch I use all 5 trays in my Excalibur dehydrator. That way I have enough raw bread for months. I only eat it about two-three times a month. It keeps well in the freezer and thaws out in less than 5 minutes.

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for an organized garage....still in progress, but coming along nicely.
