Amy Hager’s Veggie Flax Wraps
3 large carrots
1 medium onion
1 cup flax meal
2 Tbs wheat free tamari or coconut aminos
1 tsp garlic powder
Place carrots and onion into a food processor and blend until finely ground. About 30 seconds will create this consistency. Transfer to a bowl.
Add 1 cup of flax meal and 2 Tbs of tamari/aminos and garlic powder. Mix until blended into a dough-like consistency. If the mixture is too dry, you may add a tablespoon of water or 2 until the dough like consistency is achieved.
If you have a large dehydrator: Remove the dough ball and spread onto dehydrator sheet covered with teflex and spread to a 1/4 inch thickness. Try to keep the thickness consistent and avoid thin spots. Place in dehydrator set at 120 degrees. After 2 hours, take the sheet out and gently flip it over. Peel back the lining and place back in dehydrator for another hour.
Otherwise, spread onto a parchment or silicone lined cookie sheet and bake (again aim for consistent thickness). Place in oven warmed to 150 degrees. Check on the wrap after an hour an a half to see pliable the corners are. If not totally mushy, it’s ready to flip and peel off the parchment paper. Return to oven or another hour.
After the wraps have cooled a bit, you can slice them into whatever shapes or sizes you like. I find this recipe easily creates 6 individual wraps suitable for rolling veggies, tuna or your favorite combinations.
