Yep, that’s right, I made a raw, dehydrated onion bread. And you know what? It was absolutely delicious! But you see, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out.
I mean, it’s an raw onion bread…how good could it possibly be? I decided to try it anyways.
They need to be thinly sliced and instead of doing it by hand, I broke out the handy dandy awesome KitchenAid Food Processor that I simply adore.
I used the slicing attachment. It looks like this.
Once the onions get sliced (it only takes about 30 seconds with this baby), they look like this. Aren’t they pretty!
Then I changed the attachment to the grating one. I use it a lot for shredding veggies for salads too. It looks like this.
Since I didn’t have two large carrots, I gave it an educated guess and shoved as many as would fit in the feeder tube.
It seemed to measure out correctly. (One of my favorite things about making raw food dishes is the fact that the measurements don’t have to be perfect.)
While I was grinding away at the onions and carrots, I had the ground flax seeds soaking in water (just like I was suppose to). They look like this when they have been soaked. All jelled up and sticky. Perfect for binding things together. Like onions and carrots. Wait…that’s the goal, right?
I added the onions…
Next, I added the carrots…
Mixing it all together, it looks like this…
At this point I’m not fully convinced that it’s going to taste good. I mean, it’s practically all onions!
But I press on…onto the lined dehydrator trays, that is. Then put it into the dehydrator at 105 degrees and let it do it’s thing for 8 hours, then flip and dehydrate for another 8 hours.
*Tip – 16 hours may seem like a long time but if you put it in dehydrator right before you go to bed, then flip it over first thing in the morning, it will be ready to eat when you get home from work. Best part is when you walk into the house after a long day after work and smell the delicious aroma this bread fills the air with. Nothing beats homemade bread!
Looks a little funky, right? But wait! Look at how it turns out!
Golden, moist and packed full of flavor. I think it’s one of the best breads I’ve ever tasted! Even the BF had to sneak a taste. The aroma that filled the house for two days was simply irresistible. I mean, look at that texture!
It has become my new favorite! Have I mentioned how inexpensive it is too? Doesn’t get much better than that right there!
Add some tomatoes, onion, and lettuce, and a dollop of cashew mayo.
