Inspired by the Hungarian partner, Agnes Repka, I bought this year a dehydrator. I was unhappy being dependent on cereals, bread and pasta and tried to find an alternative for this. For the Dutch meeting, I needed to make a lot of linseed crackers and I discovered to do this with my speciality, the wild plants.
So here I give the recipe for wild linseed crackers:
– soak 1 kg of linseed crackers one night in water
– soak 1 cup of sunflower seeds one night in water (or other seeds..)
Collect a big bag of a mix of edible wild plants and cut these into small pieces (or add edible flowers..).
Mix the soaked linseed, the sunflowers and the wild plants together.
Add sea- or celtic sea salt (and any herbs and spices you like..)
Spread the paste on the sheets of the dehydrator and dry them 12-18 hours at low temperature (42 degrees Celsius).
I feel wonderfull and healthy with this alternative for bread.
Have a nice bite!
