Everyone probably has a bounty of zucchini in their garden right about now...I shredded some up and froze to use in soups this winter. And sliced some very thinly with a mandoline like cutter I got at the thrift store for $1 to make zucchini chips. I mixed the sliced zucchini with herbs and placed them in the food dehydrator for a day and ended up with delicious veggie chips that Jude and I both really love.
I've been wanting to make essene bread for quite a while. I finally did, and it is so easy. I just soaked my whole grains overnight. I used Kamut, an ancient relative of wheat, but you can use other whole grains that you can sprout. After I soaked the grains I sprouted them by draining and rinsing the grains and setting them in the jar at a 45 degree angle out of the sun. I rinsed and drained 2 more times until the tails were about as long as the grain. I dumped the grains into the food processor and processed until they formed a dough. I spread the dough out on non-stick teflex sheets that I cut to fit my food dehydrator and dehydrated for about 8 hours. (You could also use the oven on a very low temperature, but you will destroy some enzymes that way. And I suppose if you live some place really dry you could just put it outside to dehydrate) The result is really yummy. The outside is crunchy and the inside is soft and sweet. Good with butter or pesto;)
