Sun-Dried Tomato and Sesame Wraps (nut-free)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

These wraps turned out just gorgeous.  They look cooked don’t they?  Not to worry, they were only dehydrated.  We can thank the sun-dried tomatoes for their color variances and beautiful look.   This recipe can be quite versatile; you can spread the batter out thinly to make wraps, keep it more thick to make bread-like crackers or refrain from spreading it out too much and end up with a real hardy cracker.  Don’t you just love having that control?!  Make one batch of batter,  split it up and make a little of all of them!

Recipe modified from: Sweetly Raw

Ingredients: yields 5 cups batter / 18 / 6″ wraps

  • 5 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • 3/4 cup raw flax meal
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds, soaked for minimum of 2 hours
  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp tamari or nama shoyu
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsps dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Preparation:

  1. In the blender puree the 5 tomatoes first.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients except for the sunflower and sesame seeds until it creates a thick sauce.
  3. Now add the seeds and blend till mixture is thick and uniform, don’t puree the seeds (don’t lose all the texture).
  4. To make circular wraps, pour 1/4 cup of the mixture onto a teflex dehydrator sheet and use a spatula to spread it out evenly, in a circular motion.  This should spread out to create a 6″ circle.
  5. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 2 hours.  Flip the bread onto the mesh screen and peel off the teflex sheet.  If the teflex doesn’t come off to willingly, continue drying for about another hour.  Then try again.  After the wraps are on the mesh sheet continue drying for about 4 hours.  Check every once in a while, stopping the process once the desired dryness is achieved.
  6. If you are making crackers and the batter is thicker, allow them to dry for about 4-6 hours before you try to flip them onto the mesh sheets, again if the teflex doesn’t peel off easily, dry a bit longer.  Once you can peel off the teflex sheet and they are on the mesh sheet, score them into desired sized cracker shapes and continue drying for 6-10 hours.

Tip:  When spreading the batter to make your circular wrap use a spatula or off-set spatula, use a light hand and hold it almost flat so you can spread the batter evenly.  Turn the tray as you create the circle.  If your batter is a tad sticky, it helps to dip your spatula in water.  Again, the key is to use a light hand and be gentle.  Soon you get the hang of it.

Equipment Needed: (my personal recommendations)

    WOW! Amazing or rawmazing!!!

  2. Alta says:

    Amie Sue, how long will these keep? What’s the best way to store them? I’d love to make a dehydrator full and have some on hand on a regular basis.

    • amie-sue says:

      Alta,
      Yes, you can use white instead black sesame seeds… I just liked the sprinkle of black in them. :) Gosh, I have had mine in a zippie bag in the fridge for about a month so far. I don’t know exactly what their shelf life is but I would say that is good so far. If they get to stiff, you can spritz them with water to soften them too. Have a great day, amie sue

      • Alta says:

        Thanks, Amie Sue! I doubt mine would last as long as a month;-). but that is good info to know. I’m going to get these in the dehydrator asap!

  3. Alta says:

    Oops, one more question. can you substitute regular sesame seeds for the black sesame seeds?

  4. Jan Taylor says:

    Sweet Amie-Sue! A most novice question…what exactly are sun-dried tomatoes? Is that something I make ahead or is it something I buy??

  5. Davy says:

    I gotta try these asap. I’m bombarding ya with questions tonight aren’t I? I had this site bookmarked for a minute. So Im writing down which recipes I asked questions. Anyways I have this cool lil gadget, it’s like a pancake batter holder thing, that you release the button and it forms perfect circles onto whatever medium you lay it on. Anyways I hate spreading certain recipes in my dehy, so I wanted to ask if you add water to make this very batter like, liquidy will it alter the flavor? Or will the dehydrating just take care of the excess water and the flavors will still come out after the time? Just trying to save a bit of time?

    • amie-sue says:

      Haha Davy, you are busy tonight for sure, but I don’t mind and will help as much as I can. :) I know about the device that you are talking about. I have one too, but if it is just like mine, I have found that it takes a pretty smooth and liquidy batter in order for it to work. Personally, I wouldn’t add more water but if you feel inclined to test it out…. go for it. Besides, this is a wrap recipe and it only makes approx. 6 of them, that isn’t too many to spread out by hand. The more liquid you add, the more it will spread out, messing with the consistency. IF you do try it your way, please keep me informed… we all learn new things everyday!

  6. Holly says:

    My husband is allergic to sesame and we are gluten-free. What do you think the best substitution for the sesame seeds would be? Perhaps just adding more of sunflower or flax? Thanks!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Holly,
      I am sorry to hear that your husband is allergic to sesame seeds. You could use more sunflower seeds for sure, or you can try hemp seeds. Have a great day! amie sue

  7. Louise says:

    Hi amie-sue I just came across your site and it’s fantastic!! Love the photos! I just had a couple of questions if you get chance because I’m new to the raw world!

    1. I can’t have flax, is there anything else I can use, perhaps psyllium?
    2. I also can’t have tamari or nama shoyu! Any suggestions for a substitute?
    3. Can I store a big batch of home made sundried tomatoes in a glass jar? If so, how long will they keep?

    Thanks so much for your help! Your site is one of the few I’ve come across that has inspired me to un-cook!!! Bookmarked!

    • amie-sue says:

      Welcome Louise… I am so glad that your found raw and found my site. :) I am here for you anytime you have questions. I may not have all the answers but I am thrilled in trying to help you along the way! So let’s get down to business and answer you questions:

      Q. I can’t have flax, is there anything else I can use, perhaps psyllium?
      A. You can use psyllium but I would personally use ground chia seeds. To much pysllium can make things slimy in my opinion.

      Q. I also can’t have tamari or nama shoyu! Any suggestions for a substitute?
      A. How about Raw Coconut Aminos or Raw Braggs Aminos? Those are all interchangeable.

      Q. Can I store a big batch of home made sundried tomatoes in a glass jar? If so, how long will they keep?
      A. You can store them in a jar in the fridge. For how long… good question. There are many different factors that come into play. Are they just dehydrated? Remember, the more moisture that is in an item, the more susceptible it is to bacteria, thus shortening the shelf life. I have dehydrated cherry tomatoes and kept them in my fridge for months and they were fine to use. Sorry that I can’t give a solid answer on this one.

      Have a wonderful day! amie sue

    What an awesome awesome recipe! Can’t wait to try this!
    :)

  9. Marti says:

    Just found time to try these. In the dehydrator now…they taste great even before they went in.

    My “batter” was extremely thick and it made it difficult to spread into a circle. Also, I only got about 10, so I’m assuming I made them way to think–which will be fine, but i needed them to be wraps since we can’t get GF wraps that are good here in New Zealand.

    I did use 1/4 cup of the mixture as the recipe said. How thick should they be when you spread them out?

    I think you’re right that we’ll get the hang of it–the first time out is always the trial batch.

    Thanks for an amazingly useful and beautiful website!

    Cheers from down under,
    Marti

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Marti,

      I am glad that you are making these and I hope that you enjoy them! I would say that I spread mine always to about 1/4″ thick, but it can vary. The beauty is preparing them to whatever thickness or thinness that you like or need. It does take a time or two to get a feel for it, but I have complete faith that you will concur it! :)

  10. Hi Amie-Sue, I have been on the hunt for a corn tortilla substitute and I think this might work. I just wanted to confirm, does the recipe make 18 or 6? In reply to Davy you said, “Besides, this is a wrap recipe and it only makes approx. 6 of them, that isn’t too many to spread out by hand.” Thanks!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Starlene,
      It makes 6… but then again it depends on how large or small you want to make them. Please let me know if you make them and what you think. Have a great evening, amie sue

  11. ben says:

    Hi, Amie-Sue. I have a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil. Can I use these (after draining the oil, of course), or would they be too oily for the recipe? Thanks in advance.

    • amie-sue says:

      Good afternoon Ben

      You can use them just fine, I would place them in a paper towel and squeeze out as much of the oil that you can and you should be golden. Enjoy!

  12. Michele-Ann says:

  16. Heather says:

    Hi Amie-Sue
    I just love your site and I can’t wait to order online at your new store! Congratulations on working your dream!

    I made two batches of these the other day, I’m not patient enough to hand spatula so I used your suggestion from the Black Sesame Cauliflower crackers, the flat bottom glass cup. I used a flat bottom glass bowl that’s slightly bigger than a cereal bowl dip in water, then only need a little spatula time! I was able to whip out 16 circles in no time! Thanks for sharing your passion!

    I found your site two years ago and have watched it ever since. For Christmas I finally got an Excalibur 9 tray and was able to go from watcher to doer!! Mike says that machine owns me now as it’s been going at least 3-4 days every week. Thanks for all your inspiration!!

    Heather

    • amie-sue says:

      Good afternoon Heather… well it is about time that I hear from you. hehe So happy that you left me a comment. :) I love your creativity in used the cereal bowl… perfect. I know what you mean about the dehydrator owning you. hehe I have mine going almost 7 days a week. I just love all of the wonderful aromas that omit from it. I have often been tempted to roll them right into the bedroom so I can smell them well into my dreams. hehe

      Have a glorious week Heather and I do hope to hear from you more in the future. Many blessings, amie sue
