For this batch of dehydrator crackers, I experimented with decreasing the amount of flax. I wanted to see if the crackers would still hold together if the crackers were mostly made from a vegetable. I’m always looking for ways to eat more raw cruciferous veggies, so I decided to try cauliflower.
When I spread the wet mixture onto the dehydrator sheet, I wasn’t sure if I’d end up with a too-crumbly cracker or not. As it turned out, the cracker sheet was very well bonded and actually took a surprising amount of effort to break apart. I determined that the agave nectar provided a bit of “glue.” (Mental note filed!) These are quite spicy, a touch sweet, and definitely cauliflowery!
SPICY THAI CAULIFLOWER DEHYDRATOR CRACKERS
1 3/4 C raw cauliflower, finely chopped with a food processor
1/4 C ground flax
1/3 C water
2 T agave nectar
2 T Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Chili Sauce & Marinade
Combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Let mixture sit 1 hour to allow the liquid to absorb into the flax. Spread the mixture about 1/4″ thick onto 1 ParaFlexx non-stick dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 4 hours. Flip the cracker sheet over. Continue dehydrating until all moisture is absorbed (8+ hours). Break apart. If you store the crackers in the freezer, the crackers can be immediately eaten and will stay crispy.
