In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would share a few green food recipes with you this week!
First up are my savory seeds n’ green crackers – I bought a bag of salad booster from Nuts.com back in the fall that I’d forgotten about and wanted to experiment with. I’ve seen other similar salad booster blends at health food stores as well and they all tend to have very similar ingredients:
Organic Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Sprouted Sunflower Seeds, Organic Sprouted Sesame Seeds, Wild White Chia Seeds, Spirulina, Himalayan Crystal Salt, Chlorella, Organic Dulse, Organic Kelp, Organic Dill Weed, Organic Spices, Organic Lemon Peel and Organic Cayenne.
I combined the salad booster with flaxseed meal, sunflower seeds and coconut flour for a nut-free, vegan cracker that is flavorful enough on it’s own for snacking. The addition of nutritional yeast adds a light cheesy flavor without the dairy 🙂
Savory Seeds N’ Green Crackers
5 1/2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
3-4 Tbsp nutritional yeast
3 Tbsp oat bran (for grain-free, you could use chickpea flour)
6 Tbsp sunflower seeds, pulsed into a coarse meal (I didn’t do this and my crackers were crumbly)
1 Tbsp coconut flour
4 Tbsp grapeseed oil, coconut oil (in liquid form) or olive oil
2 Tbsp water (or more until forms a ball if needed)
1 1/2 Tbsp salad booster (mixture of spices, dulse, kelp and seeds)
ground black pepper to taste
1. Preheat over to 300F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well combined. If the mixture doesn’t come together into a ball, add a drizzle of water until it just holds together (you don’t want mixture to be too wet)
3. Add ball of mixture onto parchment paper and place another piece of parchment on top. Roll out evenly with a rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thickness.
4. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until crackers are crisp. Remove from oven and cut into squares while still warm. Let cool and enjoy!
Makes about 18-20 crackers
*If you do not have salad booster on hand, you can make these crackers with your favorite herbs, spices and some sea salt to taste!
