Today we welcome Melissa Sokulski from and for another episode of Pure Jeevan's Makin' It Monday "Guest Raw Chef" edition. In this episode, Melissa demonstrates how to make raw tortillas (this recipe uses a dehydrator). You'll be amazed at how pliable these tortillas are!!

Here's the recipe: Blend approx. 5 cups of vegetables and a into a soup. Melissa used zucchini, tomatoes, cucumber, celery, and garlic, along with 1 - 2 tsp. lemon juice, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. coriander, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp. sea salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Once it's blended, add in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of ground flax seeds and blend again to mix. Pour a few cups onto your dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 6 to 8 hours. Then flip and continue dehydrating for 1/2 to 1 additional hour.

These look AMAZING! Let us know what you think if you try them. We'll be trying these VERY soon. THANKS, Melissa!!

That was a fun video, Melissa.......thanks for sharing! I have intended to get a dehyrator for many years, and would love one even more now. Trying to expand my living food horizons after four years now. Will definitely put this on my wish list!

Really enjoyed your daughter's delight in what you made, also! She is such sweet heart.

Blessings, Tracey

Thanks so much, Tracey!
I bought a dehydrator right away, but didn't use it for years! We actually gave it away at one point, but it came back eventually and now I use it quite often.
Thanks again,

You mean you bought a boomerang dehydrator? How funny..... I can appreciate that: all good things eventually come back to us, if we wait long enough!

Those burgers you served at Wendi and Jim's were fantastic last fall!

My wish list is getting longer and longer! But loving it!
