Raw Food Recipe: Raw Cheez-Its

1 batch ~ $4.29 per batch



ingredients
  • 1 cup nuts (I used half Brazil Nuts and half Walnuts) ($3.00)
  • 1 red bell pepper ($.69)
  • 1/2 jalapeno, finely minced ($.10)
  • juice of one lemon ($.50)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil ($.10)
  • 1 cup water for blending

These are truly, jaw dropping amazing ... they are so close to the real thing. Being almost all nuts, they're not exactly diet food. But, as an occasional treat, they're perfect.

Blend all ingredients except jalapeno in blender until pureed and creamy. Fold in the finely minced jalapeno.

Spread the cheeze mix thinly on plastic or teflex lined sheets in dehydrator. When top is dry enough, which takes a few hours, flip and peel from the sheets. Score into square shapes, if desired (mine turned out a bit rustic, but that didn't affect the flavor). Continue to dehydrate for several hours or overnight, until crisp and break into pieces.

  2. I can't get over how perfectly crispy and cheese these look! I've definitely struggled to get truly crunchy nut-based crackers before, so I'll have to follow your approach next time.
