Category – Dehydrated- Raw
Preperation – 20 min + 8 hrs dehydration
Quantity – 4-6 person
Equipment – food processor, dehydrator

Ingredients for the dough
800 g zucchini peeled
8 tbsp flaxseeds
4 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp herbs de provence
2 tbsp black sesame seeds to sprinkle
1/2 tsp salt 

Instructions for the dough

1. Peel and wash your zucchini. Cut in four pieces. Add to your food processor. Blend until smooth.

2. To have flax meal, ground flax seeds in a coffee grinder to produce a fine flour.

3. Then add the flax meal, lemon juice and salt to your food processor. Blend until smooth.

4. Pour mixture onto the dehydrator sheets and spread evenly into a circle or square shape. Sprinkle some black sesame over the dough. ( I use  30×30 cm dehydrator sheets. This recipes makes 4  tray dough. If you want to make more, double the ingredients.)

5. Dehydrate for 6-8 hours at 42 C , or until able to peel off the sheet.

6. Once the nonstick sheets are removed, return to the dehydrator for 1-2 hours, until both sides are dry to the touch but still pliable. Do not dehydrate too long as breaks will occur in the dough. You should obtain a flexible dough and it should be easily rolled up.
