These living treats are the bomb if you’re trying to avoid flour, gluten and other processed nasties this summer. Quick and easy to prepare as long as you have a dehydrator and a few days patience. I guarantee they’re worth the wait. 

2 cups activated pepitas
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup minced raw kale
4 – 6 kaffir lime leaves (if using fresh use 4, if frozen use 6)
½ cup dehydrated tomatoes, semi dried
2 small birdeye chillis
1 thumb-size knob fresh young ginger, peeled
½ cup coriander
½ cup fresh basil
2 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons Brookfarm lime and chilli infused macadamia oil
Pinch or 2 of cayenne pepper, more if you like it hot
Mineral salt to taste
Water to bind – as required

  1. Place pepitas and chia seeds into a blender. Blitz a few seconds until just breaking up
  2. Add kale, lime leaves, dried tomatoes, chilli, ginger, and herbs and blitz until a rough pesto is formed
  3. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add tamari,  macadamia oil and season with cayenne and salt to your liking.
  4. Add water if you feel this mix is too dry. It should resemble a semi-smooth pesto by now
  5. Spread onto a *Teflex sheet on a dehydrator tray and level out with a spatula
  6. Score with a knife into squares or triangles
  7. Dehydrate at 45 C for at least 12 hours, then remove from Teflex sheet
  8. Flip upside down and transfer to a mesh dehydrator tray and dehydrate a further 12-24 hours
    *depending on how thick your mix is and crisp you would like your crackers
  9.  Store in an airtight container for up to 10 days

Note: I use an Excalibur dehydrator so my trays are square. This this recipe also suits round dehydrator trays. These crackers are meant to be thinner than most and more elegant. A *Teflex sheet is a reusable Paraflexx non-stick sheet.

Serving suggestion:
Accompany your crackers with fermented beetroot slaw, activated nuts and seeds, a good dollop of macadamia pesto and some house dried tomatoes.
