I don’t speak Hebrew, but ‘Happy Passover’ simply hasn’t the same ring to it. We are commanded this week of Feast of Unleavened Bread to eliminate leaven (not necessarily yeast) from our lives. I’m not a fan of Matzoh or other flat wheat breads, so here’s what i’ve made. For those of you who are experts on this, PLEASE let me know if this does not meet biblical standards of unleavened bread.
1 cup almonds (ground)
1 cup shredded mozzarella (or whatever cheese you prefer, i used provolone this time)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (ground)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (ground)
1/2 cup sesame seeds (ground)
1/4 cup flax seeds (ground)
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons onion flakes (ground)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup black olives (finely chopped)
2 large eggs
1/4 cup olive oil
Using my Magic Bullet, i ground all the seeds and nuts separately for best results into a coarse grind, feel free to grind them finely, it’s up to you. Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl with a fork, holding out about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
Press mixture onto a buttered 9 x 15 stone pan (use whatever you have), then bake in a 375ºF oven for 12 minutes.
Take out of the oven and cut into squares (i use a pizza cutter), brush with remaining olive oil, and sprinkle with salt flakes (optional, but not too much). Bake for another 8 minutes. Take out of the oven immediately and let cool a bit before trying to remove the squares. Use a spatula to remove them.
Absolutely delicious in my opinion!
Keeping Yah’s Feasts (and other Mo’edim) is not just a Jewish celebration; it is for ALL His set apart people! What an honour we are given to give glory to Him in His way.
