I find inspiration for delicious things to create from many different places. Often times, I will see something on Pinterest, or in a magazine, and I will think to myself, "I can veganize that!" For these flatbreads, I made a seeded base that I used for crackers, mostly composed of flax seeds, but this time I included some protein powder to give them a protein boost and made them a full meal. Then I made some coconut chèvre to top them with. I even added probiotics to give it a delicious tang so it tasted like the real thing, and so it's good for your insides. I topped off the flatbreads and chevre with some flavorful seeds, lemon-dressed carrots, and baby kale. These are delicious!

Preparation

For the chèvre:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a container with a lid, and set in a warm place overnight.
  3. Once it has become tangy in flavor, place in the refrigerator to chill completely.
For the crust:
  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a large bowl until well blended, then spread out on a lined dehydrator tray in a big square about 1/8 inch thick.
  2. Dehydrate at 115F for 2 hours, then score into 9 squares with a knife.  Continue to dehydrate until completely dry, about 22 more hours.
  3. Peel the carrots into strips with a vegetable peeler. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil, lemon juice and a little sea salt.
To assemble the flatbreads:
  1. Spread some of the chevre onto each flatbread, sprinkle with a little of the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, red pepper flakes and lemon zest.
  2. Top with the carrots, making sure they are drained well, then top with a little of the kale.
  3. Serve immediately!
