Day 10 Making Something out of Nothing

So I did not get to the grocery store (and I know there is no way I’ll have time today or tomorrow or probably the next 😦 ) but I still managed to make two recipes today. I have no clue what I’m going to do about tomorrow! But all I really need to worry about is today, right? Today has enough worries of its own and tomorrow will take care of itself. <or so we hope>

  Granola pg. 113 Great way to start my day! I loved all of the almonds, coconut, and sunflower seeds. Normally I just make granola with just oats and flavorings but I really liked all of the additions.

I also made Vegetable Grain Crisps pg. 305 Very good! I had never made my own “crackers” before. I did run into problems because I only have a mini food processor and no blender or regular sized food processor. It took quite a while to get the grain to a creamy consistency. I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I don’t think I can get away doing this entire cookbook without a blender or food processor. And my mini food processor really isn’t liking this or was meant to do what I’m asking it to. We used to have both a blender and food processor but let’s just say I’m a little hard on equipment. I guess I basically expect them to do miracles.  Anyway on to the recipe…

1/4 c. rye berries
1 1/2 c. wheat berries
2 c. water
1 T dehydrated onion flakes
1 T dill weed
1 t. caraway seeds
3/4 t Celtic sea salt
Soak grain in water overnight. Next morning blend in blender until a creamy consistency is reached. You may need to add more water (should be about 1 c. of grain to 1 c. of liquid.) Add spices and blend long enough to mix well. Pour a thin layer onto solid plastic dehydrator trays. (Do not use trays lined with plastic wrap, wax paper, or aluminum foil.) Dehydrate 10-12 hours at 105 degrees. The longer they dry the more crispy they become. When dry, break apart and put into tightly covered container.
