Red Pepper Crust/Cracker

adapted from: skinnylimits.com

Red Pepper Crust/Cracker:

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup each of chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds
  •  pepper, to taste

 

To make the crust: put all the ingredients in your food processor and process until everything has combined into rough, slightly wet “dough”. Spread this evenly onto parchment on a pizza pan and dehydrate in your oven at its lowest temperature for 3-5 hours or until it’s like a giant cracker. If you have a dehydrator, you can use that instead and set it to just above 115 degrees.

Sandwich Bread

I really like the flavor of this bread for sandwiches but I did have difficulty with getting it to rise and be of normal bread size.  This is something I need to work out.  Does anyone have any suggestions for this??

  • 1/4 cup avocado
  • 2 eggs

 

Combine milk, honey and yeast in small bowl; set aside 10 minutes.

Combine flour blend  in large stand mixer bowl; beat with stand mixer on low speed, gradually adding yeast mixture until well combined. Add avocado and eggs; beat, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed. Increase speed to high; beat until batter is very smooth (about 3 minutes).

Cover, let rise in warm place 1 hour.

Grease 8×4-inch loaf pan. Stir dough; pour into pan, leveling top. Loosely cover with greased plastic food wrap; let rise until just above top edge of pan (20 to 30 minutes).

Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F. Bake for 42 to 50 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove bread from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
