Grain-Free, Low-Carb, CRUNCHY Chips (A Raw Food)

Light as Air Chips


This is one of my mother's raw food recipes. She loves light and crunchy chips - and these fit the bill.

These are full of beneficial fiber, and are low carb, grain free, gluten free, sugar free, paleo, vegan, and have great flavor too!

Freeze your carrot pulp from making carrot juice, until you are ready to make these chips. They are easy to make and you can eat them with out guilt, because they are so good for you!


Light As Air Chips Recipe:

4 c. Carrot pulp (run through a champion juicer one time), from making carrot juice
3/4 c. finely ground blond flax meal (or brown flax)
2 T. Cal/Mag powder, optional
1/2 t. Vitamin C powder (to keep bright colored and fresh)
1 t. BioSalt (recipe on this blog)
1 t. onion powder
1 t. cumin powder (or other seasoning, to taste)
1/4 t. tumeric powder


Method:

Mix the carrot pulp with the ground flax meal together in a food processor.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse to mix well.
Taste for seasoning.
Spread thinly onto teflex sheets (non-stick sheets) that are placed onto food dehydrator racks.
Place in a food dehydrator and dry at 110 degrees until dry and crispy.
Let cool completely before breaking up and storing in air-tight containers.


Notes:

Cal/Mag powder is a mixture of food grade calcium and magnesium. You can find it at your local health food stores.

Vitamin C powder is also known as Ascorbic Acid and can also be found at health food stores.
