Healthy and easy to carry these foods are just the thing for on-the-go people. This first recipe is hers and the color is very red wet or dry. I love the savory seasonings.
You will need a dehydrator. Mine is rectangular and called
"l'Equip" sold by Emergency Essentials. It has a heating element and a fan so it works very quickly. You will also need from 6-8 clear, flexible, solid trays. ( they usually come with a dehydrator).
Soak 2 cups whole flax seeds in 2 cups good water 6-8 hours
1 large, peeled red beet
1 large red bell pepper not peeled
3-4 tomatoes not peeled
1/2 yellow onion yes, peeled
3-4 cloves fresh garlic also
1/2 tsp. real salt
2 tsp. powdered cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. turmeric
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
Add blended mixture to the soaked flaxseeds.
oil the flexible trays with olive oil and spread out the mixture on the trays as thin as possible without creating holes.
Place the trays on the bigger trays of your dehydrator and start. If you have a temp gage, turn it to 100 degrees...not much hotter. It is not necessary to cook this food...just dry it. It should take about 24 to 32 hours to dry crisp.
