Tomato Sandwich ~ Raw Food Recipe


serves 3 ~ $1.54 per serving






1 cup ground flax seeds ($.50)
1 cup water
3 medium onions, thinly sliced ($.30)
2 large carrots, grated ($.40)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil ($.30)

tomato, lettuce, onion ($2.50)

cashew mayo

1/2 cup cashew ($.50)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon agave ($.10)

This received rave reviews today. The bread was about the best raw bread I've ever had and it seemed very much like a really good ... well, bread. It has to be just right, though. Dehydrated enough to be done, but not too crisp.

Mix together the ground flax seeds and water. Let sit for several minutes to gel. Slice the onions very thinly and grate the carrots (I used the food processor for both). Stir together and add the olive oil and salt. Spread out on lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for about an hour. When it top is a bit dry to the touch, flip and continue drying on the other side. Let dry another couple hours until dry but not brittle. I used kitchen scissors to cut the bread into shapes.

Add some tomatoes, onion, and lettuce, and a dollop of cashew mayo.

To make the mayo, use a bullet type blender. Puree all ingredients until smooth and creamy.

    1. Hi Kristan ... How did it turn out? It will probably be fine, only a little drier.

  5. It taste great. Id don't have dehydrator, so I used coventional owen. It took too long, but it dried out. I guess, it's time to get one now.

  7. So what heat do you use on the dehydrator? Mine's been going all day and the bread is still pretty wet...

  11. I just made this for dinner tonight and OMG it was AMAZING!!! It was the perfect blend of sweet and savory. I added fresh garlic cloves to both bread and mayo and it just took the recipe to the next level. I also used fresh avocado and baby kale along with the tomatoes.

    I can't thank you enough and now that I've found your site I will be using it almost everyday.
