I finally did it! I made bread. Not flat bread or tortillas, but bread bread. After experimenting, I made a recipe that is versatile with all kinds of “flour”. From buckwheat flour to sunflower flour, every loaf has turned out. I hope to continue this bread making adventure and develop endless recipes.
Once again, having on hand presoaked and dehydrated nuts and seeds makes this recipe much easier. If I’m in the bread making mood, I just grab the ingredients I need, make the flour, and add the wet ingredients. Super easy.
1 c sunflower seeds (soaked and dehydrated)
1 c oat groats (soaked and dehydrated)
1 c psyllium husks
1/2 c flax seeds
1/2 c hemp seeds
1 t saltwet ingredients:
2 c water
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c Irish moss gel (will share how-to soon)
1 T honey
juice from 1 lemon
Grind dry ingredients into a flour. Blend wet ingredients. In a food processor, slowly pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Knead and mold into a loaf. Dehydrate for 6 hours (or overnight). Slice and continue dehydrating until it reaches desired consistency.
A good peanut butter and jelly sandwich always sounds good. Not so good on the body, but wow were they tasty! Making fresh almond butter and jam was a reminder of how good sandwiches are. So many times with raw food, instead of trying to replicate “normal” food, you just make new kinds of food. However, a good sandwich can be duplicated.
1 1/2 c thawed frozen strawberries
1 c Irish moss gel
3 T honey
juice from 1/2 a lemonAlmond Butter
3 c almonds (soaked and dehydrated)
1/2 -1 t salt
For the jam, just blend everything and let set in refrigerator. As for the almond butter, it’s quite the process, literally. After pulsing the almonds (and salt) in a food processor, it’s a slow process of breaking down the flour-like almonds until the oil separates into a creamy butter. It is worth the wait! I tried to let the food processor take a break here and there, as to not overheat, but it takes even longer. Either way, it is much cheaper (and more fresh) to make at home.
