Zucchini Crackers

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year!
I know I have my New Year's Resolution, Rachel is still working on hers.
We will unveil our plans for 2014 next week! 
Well this week we are continuing with our experimenting in the Raw Food diet.
We read many recipes and blogs for raw crackers, there were many different ones, and it looked like everyone put whatever they liked in it.
So we were literally throwing things together for this, whatever sounded like it would be good together.

For our crackers you will need:
a food processor 
a dehydrator
3 zucchini
1 clove garlic
1 small onion
5 tablespoon flax seeds

We already started before we took the picture >_<

Add all your ingredients to your food processor. 

And process!

This is what you end up with, nice goopy green slime!

Line your dehydrator with parchment paper.
Not everyone is fortunate to have a dehydrator, your oven on the lowest setting should work I think.
I am lucky that my Dad used to make jerky every year so we have one.

And spoon the mixture on, one tablespoon at a time.

According to everything we read on Raw Food the food can't be heated over 115 degrees or else the breakdown of nutrients will begin. So we set the dehydrator to 115.

Leave it in the dehydrator overnight or for about 8-10 hours.

Peel the crackers off the parchment paper and put them in a airtight container.

Here they are, They tasted pretty good. Very garlicky just the way I like it!
They were crunchy like a cracker should be and went great with my guacamole!
Rachel thought they were bland, so we may add a bit of salt next time.
She of course liked it better with a dip of some sort. 

3 zucchini made quite a bit of crackers, filled a quart container over half way.

Thorin is not amused... We found him sleeping in a box of Mason jars and decided it was cute.
