Recipe Guest Post | Vegan Crackers

Ladies & Gentlemen I have a treat for you! A guest post by Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures! We are blogging buddies and run The Great Blog Train blog hop together with Angie @ God's Growing Garden...check that out here-it runs on the first Wednesday of every month! Anyway, enjoy this recipe which she has put together to share with you all today!
 
Vegan Crackers

Hello! My name is Marci. Our home is an old rock farmhouse built in the 1930s. There are two greenhouses, a vegetable garden, herbs, several flower beds, lots of hobbies and too many pets. Thankfully, our neighbors love us! They say being our neighbor is like living next door to Old MacDonald and Martha Stewart! My blog is Stone Cottage Adventures. 
 
 
Thanks to The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook, I've discovered this wonderful recipe for vegan crackers.  Perfect for my goals in 2013.

The recipe calls for specific seeds, but I just used what I had on hand.  I used equal parts:  lentils, broccoli, and mung bean seeds for sprouting, pinto beans, hulled sunflower seeds and four grain oatmeal.

Cover the seeds with water and let soak overnight in the fridge so the seeds are softened.  The recipe doesn't mention herbs, but I have a couple of greenhouses.  So some herbs were snipped from them.

I chose garlic, sage, thyme and rosemary.

I used my food processor to puree the softened seeds along with the herbs.

Next, the puree is scooped onto a cookie sheet and given a generous sprinkle of sea salt. 

They are baked in a 200 degree oven until dehydrated.
 
Happy, healthful snacking thanks to The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook!
 
I hope you reach all your goals for 2013!  ;-)  -Marci

  3. Hi visiting from the blog hop, this seems to be a great recipe. It seems simple enough if I can use the seeds that I have.
