Hors d’oeuvres

Dehydrated Onion bread

1 cup of left-over veggie pulp from juicing

1 cup of ground flax seeds

1 cup of ground sunflower seeds

3 sliced large yellow onions

½ cup of Nama Shoyu

Thinly slice or chop the onions. Grind the flax and sunflower seeds and put them in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, including the onions. Mix well with your hands, massaging the mixture. Allow the mix to settle for 30 minutes. You will need a dehydrator for this. (Or you could put the batter in a crock-pot or the oven at a very low temperature). Spread the mix on the Teflex sheets of the dehydrator and dehydrate for 24 hours at 105 degrees, then take out the Teflex sheets and flip over the bread and dehydrate for another 12 hours.
