Doesn't that sort of sound like an oxymoron?
I mean, crackers are usually so grain filled, for them to lack any grains at all just seems so... backwards. But, oh well. I suppose it doesn't really matter as long as the taste is good, right?
And the taste is good. Great even, if you're a savory cracker fan. Especially with a thick slather of cream cheese on top. Mmmmmm...
I actually had no idea these crackers would turn out so nicely. When I made them I was sort of rushing, so that I could get something lentil-y done in time for today's MMAZ post, and just started throwing a whole bunch of ingredients into my food processor and blending. Stopping every minute or so to taste.
It didn't really help that savory recipes aren't exactly my strongsuit. I much prefer sweet, but with the ingredient lentils, that didn't quite seem like an option.
Lentil cookies = ewwww!
Luckily, I somehow created these crunchy little crackers from all my random-ness in the kitchen. And now, because I somehow managed to keep track of everything I added to the dough, I have the recipe to share with you all. Happy Meatless Monday!
Grain Free Lentil Crackers
- 1/4 cup chickpea flour
- 1/3 cup cooked lentils
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp coconut oil (or a different type of oil)
- 1 tsp water
Preheat oven to 300F. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until combined, and no large clumps remain. Break mixture into small, thin pieces and place pieces on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Then, turn oven off and crack open door, but leave crackers in to crisp up a bit. After 10 minutes remove crackers from oven. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
Ok, so go cook up a big pot of lentils, make these crackers, then head on over to Better with Veggies to find out what other yummy stuff you could make with your lentils.
Have a great day!
