Breads and cheeses are some of the top habits that people tell me are too hard to kick. This is easy to understand, because food has been so deeply engrained into our culture, even to the detriment of our health. Fortunately, you don’t actually have to miss out on eating breads when you go raw, because you can make them raw, sprouted and gluten free! I’m a big fan of raw bread, it’s grounding and feels alive in my body unlike wheat and gluten breads which cause havoc in the body and weaken the lining of the digestive tract.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, making raw food is easy! Contrary to the popular belief that raw food takes so much time to prepare, it can actually save you time and clean up! Yes, this bread won’t be ready for 5-7 hours, but you don’t start at the dehydrator the entire time, you place the trays in, turn it on and flip them once in between. No big deal, and then you get amazing, soft and chewy flat bread.
(Makes about 6-8 slices)
- 2 cups sprouted buckwheat (soak the buckwheat in water overnight, rinse thoroughly)
- 1 cup ground flax
- 1/2 zucchini
- 1 small red bell pepper
- 1 tbsp. onion powder
- Put ingredients in your food processor and process until you get a dough. Stir before placing on the dehydrator sheet to ensure there are no leftover chunks.
- Spread mixture onto your dehydrator sheets and place trays in the dehydrator.
- Dehydrate for 5-7 hours on 110-115, flip once in between. Some breads may require up to 10 – 18 hours dehydration depending on how malleable you’d like them to be. I like soft and malleable breads so I only dehydrate them for a short amount of time.
