Creamy omega-3 strawberry, banana and linseed smoothie

Chidren enjoy linseed oil for omega-3

This was our fest attempt at cold pressed linseed oil smoothies when we needed to get omega-3 into my nephew.  He was a very picky eater a the time so getting him eat anything different was challenging.    We made it up with lots of extra linseed oil and to our amazement it went down a treat and he loved it and so did his brother, they quaffed it down almost before we could get a picture of our triumph.

Flax crackers

cracker-cheese-and-pickle

Perfect and easy recipe: Über healthy

I was given this recipe by a customer at Borough Market several years ago. Her version of it had no quantities but no matter how I made them they were perfectly delicious crackers every time.

  • Salt-free
  • Carb-free
  • Sugar-free
  • Low GI
  • Paleo
  • Rich in omega-3, fibre, protein and antioxidants

This is how my customer told me to make linseed crackers.

Simple, two ingredients

There are just two basic ingredients: Flax Farm ground linseed and water, plus mashed garlic or whatever else you fancy to vary the flavour.

The make it “by eye” recipe:

If you like garlic mash 2 garlic cloves and place in a mixing bowl; if you don’t like garlic proceed to next step.  Add some Flax Farm ground linseed, just some, about a mug-full or so.  Then add enough water to make a stiffish paste. Place the paste between two sheets of silicon paper and roll thin, take top silicon paper off and bake for about 10 mins until just leathery and beginning to colour but not brown, then turn over and remove the other sheet of silicon paper and bake for another 10 mins, then reduce temperature of oven to close to 100C and cook until dried out and crispy.

I have made this into a more accurate recipe below for those who like more precise quantities.

Raw

If you want to keep it raw simply put into a food dehydrator.

Absolutely irrisistable and delcious

We made these several times to sell on the Flax Farm market stall at Borough Market but every time we ate them all before we got them there, so we gave up and started giving out the recipe instead.

Traditionally served with fish. It is also great with potatoes,cauliflower, tofu, or even simply cooked chicken, turkey or pork fillet.  It works just as well as a dip for fresh veggies or crackers. Also use as sandwich filling with salad.

Raw option

Chef’s tip:   You can make this sauce entirely raw and it is even easier. Just take all the ingredients, place in blender and whiz until a chunky not too smooth sauce.
