Directions:

1) It may seem complicated, but all you need is a food processor, a bowl, a knife, and a spatula. Begin by pulsing the veggies into tiny chunks – but not too fine as texture adds to this recipe.

2) Transfer pulsed vegetables into a bowl. Next, create your ‘cheeze’ by pulsing your cashews into a fine crumble. Add in your nutritional yeast, salt, lemon/lime juice, and any dry herbs you like. Pulse a little bit more and add into the bowl with the veggies.

3) Now, make your chunky marinara last as it has the most moisture (and this way you don’t have to wipe out your food processor – aha!). Add in all ingredients and process until a chunky but still well-combined texture has been attained.

4) Add into your large bowl of goodness and stir together. You’ll notice it’s a little bit soupy. Here’s where you add in your ground flax and let sit for about 5 minutes while you prep your Teflex Sheets and Dehydrator Trays. (If you don’t have Teflex sheets, use parchment paper).

5) Evenly spread your crackers about 1/4 inch thick and score them (make marks so they easily come apart) before putting them in the dehydrator.

6) Let dehydrate for 12 hours before flipping them; keep any eye as they should crisp up in the next 2-3 hours. (P.S. I’m also in Costa Rica so it may just take longer here!)

7) Rub a hand over your tummy as you break them apart, devour one – slowly! – and thank the great creator for such amazing, healing, delicious food! Enjoy!
