ani’s raw sesame sunflower bread sandwich

this is my first time making raw bread...and really my first time making a whole raw meal, since most of the things i’ve made are just pieces, not dishes.

the bread recipe is from ani’s raw food kitchen by ani phyo. (this person has already blogged the recipe so i won’t bother). the only changes i made were adding chopped parsley and cumin, and substituting white sesame seeds for black ones.

i made one major mistake: i spread this stuff waaay too thick on the dehydrator tray. it still dried alright, but when i ate it it was thick and extremely filling. i should’ve spread it to less than half this width.

to make the sandwich i layered fresh homemade hummus, alfalfa sprouts, sliced sweet peppers, sliced tomato, salad greens, and a thick chunk of purple cabbage. i’ve been using purple cabbage as the star of a lot of my sandwiches lately. when you slice it thick enough it makes a perfect patty.

i added a side of cheesy kale chips. yumm!
