Raw Bruschetta Crackers with Basil Garlic Cashew Spread

A week and a half ago I threw a dinner party. It wasn’t your typical party as I fed an entire group of non-vegans a completely vegan dinner. There were great raw food recipes and some cooked food. Everyone loved everything and I loved showing these dedicated meat eaters that you can actually make delicious food that is plant based!


Raw Bruschetta Crackers Raw Bruschetta Crackers Basil Garlic Cashew "Cheese" Spread @ Bruschetta Crackers


One of my favorite appetizers was a flavorful bruschetta that I served on toast, topped with a balsamic reduction. Not completely raw (the bread) but so delicious.

I couldn’t get this bruschetta off of my mind and decided to bring some of the flavors into these wonderful raw Bruschetta Crackers and Basil Garlic “Cheese” Spread. The crackers have a light crispy texture. The tomatoes and onions add flavor. The other bruschetta ingredients, basil and garlic can be found in the easily made cashew “cheese” spread.  These were so tasty, I had trouble keeping them around to photograph!

Equipment Needed: food processor, dehydrator

Advanced Prep: Soak almonds and cashews overnight

    Your recipe was recommended by a friend who obviously loved it. Before i make them I just wanted to make sure that the flax seed was 1/2 cup already ground or to use 1/2 cup seed and grind them. When you grind 1/2 cup of flax seeds the end result is way more than a half cup.

      Hi, Colleen, Since the recipe calls for “1/2 cup freshly ground flax” it would be ground flax. If it said 1/2 cup flax seeds, ground, then you would measure 1/2 cup flax seeds and grind them. Cheers!

    I accidentally came across your site and love it. I’m doing a little Happy Hour with some friends, none of them do raw. I thought I would make this. Do you have any other suggestions that will impress them? I have a recipe I always make for raw potlucks for stuffed mushrooms but I wanted one more thing. Thank you!!
