Ingredients

Herb Dip

  • 1 cup soy yogurt
  • ½ cup fresh chopped herbs of choice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons cream cheese or vegan equivalent (optional)

Gluten-Free Crackers

  • 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseeds + ½ cup
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup almond flour or meal
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons mixed dried herbs of choice
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + more if needed
  • Water, as needed
  • Tamari, for brushing

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and prepare a piece or parchment the same size as baking sheet. 
  2. To prepare Herb Dip: Combine all ingredients in a food processor. 
  3. Blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. 
  4. To prepare Crackers: In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds with water. Let stand for 2-3 minutes to thicken into a flax seed slurry. 
  5. In a large bowl, mix together flours, salt, pepper, dried herbs and ½ cup ground flax seeds. Add in olive oil and flax seed slurry. 
  6. Stir together until mixture begins to clump together. Roll dough into a ball – if it’s too dry, add a little more olive oil or water until dough is pliable and smooth. 
  7. Place parchment onto clean countertop. Transfer dough to parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to about ⅛” - ¼” thickness. 
  8. Transfer to a baking sheet and cut into squares. 
  9. Bake for 10 minutes then brush with tamari. Bake another 10-15 minutes or until the crackers begin to brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Serve with Herb Dip and enjoy!
