yeah, that's right, it looks like meatloaf.
part 1 ingredients:
3/4 c ground flax
1 stalk celery
1/2 yellow pepper
3 tbs fresh oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground sage
*finely chop the celery, pepper and oregano. stir this with the other ingredients in a large bowl. set aside.
part 2 ingredients:
2 portobello mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
1/4 c dried cranberries, soaked
juice of half a lemon
a 1 inch chunk of zucchini (i found it in my fridge and thought "hey, why not?....")
dash of sea salt
*soak the dried cranberries for a half hour. put all ingredients in blender and blend away, adding just enough of the soak water to keep things moving. pour this mixture over the part one ingredients.
*mix everything together...of course using your hands! it should be kind of like a wet dough. pour this on to a dehydrator sheet and shape with your hands into loaves. dehydrate for 3 hours on 115 degrees. flip the loaves over and dehydrate with out the sheets for another 10 hours...talk about losing your mind to make this.
|eaten alongside marinated broccoli, these flavors mixed to create a beautiful song on my tongue|
in the end i cut them into individual portions and let them continue dehydrating so it would speed things up. on the upside, if it's a little damp on the inside my husband says it tastes like moist stuffing. but for the perfect texture, do what you have to do to dehydrate it until it's dry in the center....make a day ahead of serving or make it first thing in the morning so it's ready to be devoured by dinner.
