COOKING & KITCHEN

Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of removable bottom tartlet pans.
Place in dehydrator at 46 degrees for 4 hours. Carefully remove from tart pans and dry for a further 6-12 hours or until dry.

Blend all ingredients except the onions in a high-speed blender, until smooth.
In a bowl, hand mix the date mixture with the onions until they are thoroughly covered.
Dehydrate at 46 degrees on a non-stick sheet for 2 to 3 hours, so they soften and take on a cooked appearance or in the oven with door ajar on lowest temperature for about half an hour.
