Issue 153: Flax It Up!





FlaxseedCrackers

Flaxseed Crackers
Makes about 20 to 30 crackers

Ingredients:
2 cups of flaxseeds
2 cups of pure water
¼ cup of nama shoyu
sea salt, to taste
minced herbs, if desired
1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
Place the flaxseeds and water in a large bowl. Cover and set aside for about 30 minutes. After letting the flaxseed mixture set that amount of time, slowly add the other ingredients to the mixture. Blend well. On two olive oil-greased cookie sheets spread the mixture to about 1/8th to 1/16th of an inch thick and bake at 160 degrees for about 3 hours. After three hours, flip the mixture on the cookie sheets and bake at 160 degrees for another 3 to 4 hours. Turn off the oven and let set for several hours or overnight. Break cracker mixture into several pieces and put them in a container. Serve with flaxseed & walnut hummus (below) or other dips.
