Nettle Cracker with Spicy Tomato Sauce


I really enjoy wandering through the garden, searching for wild plants to eat. There are so many. They may seem like unwanted guests first, but if you take a closer look, you want them there. Believe me.

This recipe originates in the situation of having picked way too many nettles. What to do. They are better used soon after being picked, because otherwise they get limp very fast.

These crackers came out very nice and flavorsome. Enjoy !

Nettle Cracker

4 cup nettle leaves
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp psyllium seeds in 3 tsp water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp honey

Add the psyllium seeds to the water and set aside.
Put the seeds in your food processor first. Pulse a few times. Then add the nettle leaves and mix until the nettles are broke down to small pieces. Add all other ingredients and mix until it becomes a dough-like consistency.
With a rolling-pin, between to sheets of baking paper, roll the dough approx. 5mm thick.
Cut the dough in pieces as big as you want them to be.
Bake in oven 180° C for approx. 15 min.

You can also prepare these crackers in you dehydrator (if you are lucky to own one) to make them raw.
