Raw Quickie

If you enjoy making flax crackers, then you've probably experienced the mess left after cutting them up. I've found that the "crumbs" from flax crackers, which are really just deliciously flavored and dehydrated flax seeds, are fantastic to throw in a glass jar and use for topping your salads. Or whatever other topless food you want topped.

Tonight, I threw together some local arugula—incredibly peppery—with lemon juice, a splash of olive oil, a cut up avocado, and then threw a handful of flax cracker crumbs on top. Magnificent.

Actually being the obnoxious girl that I am, I like nice neat crackers, so I cut them with scissors shortly after flipping while they are pliable. No mess, no crumbs...

Works great for corn chips too, nice little triangles. ( :

Great idea! My challenge is that I usually throw them in the D overnight. So unless I set my alarm for 3 am and zombie my way downstairs, they kind of set up by then. :)
