How to make raw Essene bagels!!

I've been trying to upload these photos for so long, but for some reason Blogger won't let me upload any photos! (it just comes up with an error!?). But anyhow, I found out I can upload pics through Picasa, but only maximum 4 at a time... hence more than one blog post for this!

These bagels (and loaves) are actually quite easy and fun to make - just a bit time consuming because of the dehydration :) My mum and brother adored them!

You do need a juicer with a blank option to make the smooth paste. Unless you don't mind it a bit chunky, then you can try it in a food processor!

1) Soak your chosen grains over night (I choose rye, spealt and barley) in pure water, or untill they are soft

2) Sprout them for 1 day, rinsing them a few times

3) Drain & mix in a bowl. Add seasonings/flavours if you want. I added: garlic, sea salt, cumin and a few dried chopped figs

4) Pulse/mix in food processor untill sticky

5) Put mixture through a juicer (Greenstar or something like that) with the blank option

6) Form as many bagels/loaves of 'bread' as you wish, yet not too big otherwise it will not dehydrate properly!

(continuation of next post!)
7) Dehydrate at 105° until firm and crispy on the outside... mine even 'rose' like real bread! (I can't quite remember how long it took, but definitely not less than 10 hours!)
They are soft inside and crispy on the outside :)

I served this raw bagel to my mum and brother with avocado slices, onion sprouts, tomato slices, spinach, shredded cabbage, drizzled it with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt and topped it off with a raw dehydrated sweet potato chip and a slice of lemon! :) Phew!
