- 1 cup organic flax seeds
- 1/3 cup fresh organic cilantro
- 3/4 cup organic sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 2 hrs.
- 1 tsp. kelp or dulse
- 1 jalapeno, with or without seeds
- 1 tbs. organic olive oil
- 1 clove organic garlic
- 1 organic onion
Soak flax seeds in 2 cups of water for 4-24 hours, until the mixture is thick and fermenting. While the flax seed are soaking, place the other ingredients into a blender or food
processor and puree. Once the flax seeds have thickened add the rest of the ingredients. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on parchment paper in the oven on the lowest setting, and flip over when dry on the bottom. Break the sheet into creative cracker pieces to serve.
