And what a delicious one: My first raw bread is made of raw almonds and sprouted wheat - and it absolutely became one of my favourite dishes!!
I have been experimenting for some time on raw food bread alternatives around - so far without success. The slippery loaf of chopped vegetables, I had produced about half a year after the guidance of a relevant raw food book, could not well be described as „bread“... But the raw onion bread that I recently discovered on the website Wagashi Maniac does!
I have presented this delicious onion bread also on my blog launch party on June 1, to which I had invited about 15 people from my family and friends. And what can I say - this bread was a hit! All guests resorted to it, wanted to have the recipe or asked for the delivery service where you could order this. This would maybe be a business idea ... But I prefer consuming myself at the moment and reblogging it... Because this bread is really delicious – it tastes like wholemeal bread, but even better- probably due to the germinated wheat. I would recommend to enjoy this bread either with the coconut chutney or a fresh guacamole (my next recipe, which I promise to post soon) - or you eat it like a real burger with everything – like tomato slices, sprouts, lettuce and a delicious dipping sauce or cream cheese.
With this recipe I would like to thank all those who were at my blog-launch party, and have encouraged me over the past weeks and months, or have just been listening when I was talking about raw food and blogging again and again ;-). And I want to encourage you, to „cook“ this recipe - it sounds tedious and consuming only at first glance - because producing just works differently than usual. In reality, it is neither expensive nor complicated. You need only this: A good food processor (or a good blender) and germinating wheat (you can order via the Internet - for example, here:. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Organic-Wheat-Grain-Sprouting-5kg/dp/B007CX4I42 I was actually very surprised when I realized that even the supermarkets which sell organic food – you can't get a single grain that still has life in ist. Nothing happens, if you soak these grains in water... But anyway, also via Internet ordered germinable wheat does not cost the world and you don't need huge amounts, as the bulk of bread is made of ground almonds. And here comes the recipe:
Onion bread (raw!)
- 1.5 cup of almond residues from manufacturing almond milk or store bought ground almonds
- 1.5 cups of sprouted wheat (4 days)* SUPERFOOD!
- 1 red onion (grated)
- 8 tablespoons virgin olive oil
- 5-6 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon agave syrup
- 1 half apple (grated)
- 1/3 cup flaxseed ground,
- 1/3 cup flax seeds, whole
- ½ teaspoon salt
*SUPERFOOD Sprouts: Read more about it here
Chop the sprouted wheat in a food processor or together with the liquid ingredients in a blender. Mix then with almond flour, olive oil and soy sauce, onion, apple and flaxseed and add salt to taste. Spread out the thick dough on a baking paper and put it in the dehydrator at 42,5 ° C (if you don't have a dehydrator, use the oven and adjust the temperature at a little bit under 50 °C). After about an hour you can cut out rectangles, diamonds or triangles. The bread then should dry for further 10 hours to be ready - best check now and then. It should not be completely dry, but also not too moist. The last 2 hours you could even turn the bread and let it dry on both sides. For those who still have their doubts: The making of this raw bread is really super easy - the drying process can be run while you are watching TV or are doing something else. I wish you all the best in „cooking“ this raw bread!
