Miners Lettuce, this grows all over the island I live on

Ingredients:
5 C greens (I used chickweed, miners lettuce, spinach, thistle (warning: spiky) and parsley
1/4 C chives, chopped fine
1 clove garlic
1 medium tomato
3/4C flax
1C almond pulp
1/4 C nut butter (optional)
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp good quality salt
Instructions:
Start with the tomato and lemon juice in the blender until liquid
Add the greens and blend until liquid
Add everything except the chives and flax and blend until as smooth as possible
Add flax and blend to incorporate (if you have to add a bit of water just go slow so you don’t overdo it)
Add the chives at the last minute so they are incorporated but not totally blended
Spread your mixture onto a paraflex or silicone sheet in your dehydrator
Score the top to make square crackers
Dehydrate at 110 for several hours until dry to the touch
Flip over your dehydrator tray onto another tray so the paraflex sheet is on top of the cracker
Peel the paraflex sheet off and continue to dehydrate until crispy
Break into crackers
Store in an airtight, dark container

Ingredients
Chill powder  3 T
Cacao nibs, crushed with a mortar and pestle  3 T
Carob (or cacao) infused pulse flakes 3 T
Maqui powder (optional but awesome) 2 T
Paprika 2 T
Mustard 1 T
Black pepper, coarsely ground 1 T
Coriander 2 t
Oregano 1 t
Ginger powder 1 t
Chipotle powder (couldn’t resist)1 t
Garlic powder 1 t
Optional:  10 capsules Megaspore (or less)

To make the Carob or Cacao Infused Dulse Flakes:
Add 1/4 C Dulse flakes and 1/4 C carob to a jar, shake to mix and leave for 24-48 hours at room temperature for the Dulse to soak up a bit of that yummy chocolatey flavour.

Optional – Shake your Dulse flakes through a sieve after they have infused to separate the loose cacao or carob powder.  I did this because I wanted a more flakey texture.

Mixing Instructions:
Mix all the powders together.  If you don’t have something SUBSTITUTE what you have in small amounts and taste to see if you like it.
If using Megaspore capsules you can simply empty them into the mixture and stir well.  They should be stable at room temperature for several weeks.
I keep mine in the fridge just in case OR throw it in my purse when going out or on the road/plane.
