Nut Butter and Jelly ~ Raw Food Lunch Recipe

serves 4 ~$1.15 per serving

  • 1 cup buckwheat, soaked ($.35)
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed, ground ($.20)
  • 1 ripe banana ($.15)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 tablespoons nut butter ($3.20)
  • 4 ounces strawberries ($.50)

This is a simple, basic recipe for a crispy cracker like bread that goes well with nut butter and any fruit "jelly."

Soak buckwheat overnight. Drain and rinse well. In a food processor, puree the ripe banana until liquid. Add in the buckwheat and process until fairly smooth. Cover the ground flaxseed with about an equal amount of water and let soak for about a half hour, until it forms the gel. Stir the soaked flaxseed, oil, and vanilla into the buckwheat and banana mixture. Incorporate well.

Spread about 1/8 inch thick on teflex sheets in the dehydrator. Dehydrate for about 2 hours on one side, then score in desired shapes and flip and dehydrate on the other side for a few hours or overnight.

Serve with a tablespoon of nut butter and some mashed fruit "jelly."
