These flaxseed crackers tast wonderfully light and crispy are quick to prepare.
They are also very healthy, as flaxseeds have the very good omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of 1:4 and contain vitamin E and the phytonutrient lignans.
The ideal time to prepare these delicious flaxseed crackers is in the summer. In peak tomato harvest season, there really is an abundance of ripe tomatoes – and tomatoes are the key ingredient here!
- 10 tomatoes (about 2 lbs)
- 2 bell pepper
- 1 cup flaxseed
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika and 1 pinch cayenne
- 1 handful basil, finely chopped
- Soak flaxseed and sunflower seeds separately in plenty of fresh water overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning and let germinate in a colander for another day if desired.
- Puree tomatoes and peppers in a food processor, add seeds, herbs and spices and mix again briefly.
- Season to taste. Spread out on 3–4 dehydrating foils and dry in the dehydrator. Turn after about 7 hours and continue drying until they’re really crispy.
- When the weather is nice, these crackers can also be dried outside in the fresh air, in the sun or shade, depending on the temperature.
This is a very easy recipe, the cracker batter is ready in no time. Maybe you’ll take them to the next picnic – your friends will be amazed!
