Raw Onion Bread? For Real?

Yep, that’s right, I made a raw, dehydrated onion bread. And you know what? It was absolutely delicious! But you see, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out.

I found a recipe for a Tomato Sandwich and thought it looked really good. And seeming how I had acquired 4 large onions from local produce delivery company called Rhonda’s Specialty Foods  and wasn’t quite sure what to do with them, so when I came across this recipe and realized that I needed 3 large onions I figured it was worth a try. (Honestly, I was very excited to try it.)

First I had to try not to cry to hard while cutting up all of the onions.

Onions

They need to be thinly sliced and instead of doing it by hand, I broke out the handy dandy awesome KitchenAid Food Processor that I simply adore.

I used the slicing attachment. It looks like this.

Once the onions get sliced (it only takes about 30 seconds with this baby), they look like this. Aren’t they pretty!

Then I changed the attachment to the grating one. I use it a lot for shredding veggies for salads too. It looks like this.

Since I didn’t have two large carrots, I gave it an educated guess and shoved as many as would fit in the feeder tube.

It seemed to measure out correctly. (One of my favorite things about making raw food dishes is the fact that the measurements don’t have to be perfect.)

While I was grinding away at the onions and carrots, I had the ground flax seeds soaking in water (just like I was suppose to). They look like this when they have been soaked. All jelled up and sticky. Perfect for binding things together. Like onions and carrots. Wait…that’s the goal, right?

I added the onions…

Next, I added the carrots…

Then it was time for the Olive Oil and Salt.

Mixing it all together, it looks like this…

At this point I’m not fully convinced that it’s going to taste good. I mean, it’s practically all onions!

But I press on…onto the lined dehydrator trays, that is.

Looks a little funky, right? But wait! Look at how it turns out!

Raw Onion Bread

Golden, moist and packed full of flavor. I think it’s one of the best breads I’ve ever tasted! Even the BF had to sneak a taste. The aroma that filled the house for two days was simply irresistible. I mean, look at that texture!

It has become my new favorite! Have I mentioned how inexpensive it is too? Doesn’t get much better than that right there!

Here is the original recipe:

Dinner
Tomato Sandwich
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 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.
****NOTE: This took me a total of about 30 hours to dehydrate to the proper dryness mentioned above.
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.
The sandwich looks like this. YUM!
