raw vegan curry flax crackers dehydrator or oven
Being Japanese, I grew up with curry so curry flavor is one of my favorites. In Japan, we have curry flavored rice crackers, and I used to devour them. I no longer eat the commercial curry crackers because of the chicken extract and MSG they contain, but I missed having something curry flavored and crunchy. So feeling nostalgic, I just had to make a raw version. That’s how this raw vegan curry flax crackers recipe came about. These crunchy flax crackers are loaded with heart healthy Omega 3’s, lignans, soluble and insoluble fiber along with warming curry spices. A perfect healthy raw vegan replacement. If you need a savory snack that’s good on the go, look no further.

Now, let’s whip up these crunchy curry circlets of goodness. First gel the flax seeds by mixing them with water. Let it stand for 30 mins to 1 hours until the seeds soak up all the water and gel.

If you own a dehydrator, l
ine your dehydrator tray with a mesh sheet, then a silicone sheet. Using a spatula,shape them into round shapes that are 1/8″ inch thick and about 3″ inches wide.

Lightly score it into desired cracker sizes, so you can break them off easily later. I do this all the time when I’m in a rush.

After several hours, check to see if the surface of the crackers are dry. If they are, it’s time to flip the crackers. To flip, grab an extra tray and line it with a mesh sheet. Place that onto the tray with the flax crackers, so that on top of the crackers, there’s the mesh sheet, then the tray. Hold the 2 trays together with both hands, and flip the tray upside down. Take off the tray and the mesh sheet on top. Then carefully peel the silicone sheet off the crackers.

Stick them back into the dehydrator and dry until completely crisp, and they’re done!

If you are using an oven, pre-heat the oven at 350℉ (175℃). Line a baking sheet with 
a piece of parchment paper. Using a spatula, shape them into round shapes that are 1/8″ inch thick and about 3″ inches wide on the parchment paper. Keep in mind baking will no longer make it raw, but will still be vegan and gluten-free.

Put the tray in the oven and bake until they’re dry for about an hour. Check in between for dryness, and when the cracker surface is completely dry, you can carefully peel off the cracker and flip. If it’s not coming off, bake some more until it comes off. Put them back in the oven and bake until they are dry.
