When things go wrong
1. If you mess up on anything, stick it in a blender and puree with some cumin and curry (you may need to add some veggies or something to create a paste consistency).
2.Spread mix on nori sheets and dehydrate until crunchy! (10-25hrs depending on food)
Bluedolfin, thanks for the tip! Following your suggestion, I just now emailed Ms. Soria at her Living Light Institute, asking her permission to post the recipe here, and explaining why I would like to. Will let you all know what she says!
Sovajo~ It is ok to post a recipe from someone else as long as you have permission to post it and you include the source. Simply email the author and ask for permission... many people have started some great relationships that way. It's an adventure. :)
Brilliant idea! I love those Gopal's things, but no one carries them anymore around me. (I did get a whole bunch for free, because they were past their sell-by date, though, which was a slight bonus to the store discontinuing them.)
Sovajo, thank you! I am not afraid to experiment with seasonings, I just wasn't sure when to dehydrate. I am excited to make them. Maybe later you can post a tweaked version or, I can find the book!
daniefon, I'm not the one who posted the No Fail Backup Plan, but I saw your comment and thought you'd like to know that there's a recipe in the new book "The Raw Revolution Diet" (Cherie Soria) for something that looks and sounds just like the Gopal Power Wraps. It's called Lemon & Herb Seaflower Snacks - made with soaked sunflower seeds processed into a paste with various seasonings, etc., rolled up in nori sheets and dehydrated until crisp and crunchy. I've made them, and they are wonderful! I'd post the recipe here, but I don't know if that's allowed - wouldn't want to get in trouble with the authors of the book!
What are suggestions for things you've tried blending and dehydrating? Do you usually do this with savory dishes? What consistency?
How does nori turn out when dehydrating? I like these nori rolls made by Gopal's. They are a flavored nut filling (japanese, curry, italian, etc) rolled into nori, the texture is firm and almost crisp. They are about the size of a Slim Jim (yuck). I would like to duplicate them, but wasn't sure if they were dried before or after assembling.
