These Rosemary Almond Crackers are super delicious!
It was that time of the month… you know, the time when you run out of “crispy nuts” and you need to make more, which requires soaking… And then you’re going to have all of these waterlogged (in a good way) nuts, just laying around. I had to find something to make with them!! What better then a cracker? This Polly sure does want a cracker!
It did suck waiting over night for them. I had visions of Rosemary Almond Crackers dancing in my head. It didn’t help that the house was filled with the aroma. Mmmmm. I woke up starving. Guess what b-fast was?
There are so many other things you could do with soaked nuts. Just to name a few:
- Cashew Cream at Chocolate Covered Katie This stuff can be made sweet or savory. Just think about the things you could pour it on! Unfortunately I can’t have cashews, but macadamia nuts should work!
- Cashew Cheese at Clean Food Dirty Girl As predicted, this stuff can be sweet or savory as well. The combinations are endless. And it is super-d-duper simple. Don’t forget that almonds are quite creamy when soaked for a while.
- Cashew Pudding at Detoxinista You’ll want to make this ASAP considering the fact that it’ll need to be refrigerated. I’m just glad you can now quench your pudding cravings.
- Rosemary Almond Crackers…right here…duh. I am preparing myself to play with the thickness and flavors of this crackers.
- Raw Cheesecake at The Earth Diet This one is made with a mixture of soaked nuts, dates and coconut (and a few miscellaneous). Nut based cheesecakes are amazingly close to the real thing if you have a dairy allergy.
- Cauliflower Ricotta at The Earth Diet This recipe blew my mind. I’ve been wanting ricotta so baaaaaad!!
- Cream of Broccoli and Cashew Soup at My New Roots Cream of Anything. I don’t care. You had me at “Cream of…”. And thanks to the soaked cashews (or almonds in my case) and nutritional yeast, you get this amazing cheesy taste. Boo-ya!
- Raw Cashew Hummus at Gluten Free Goddess If you’re like me and are legume free (yes!!! a rhyme) then you’ll absolutely love this nut based hummus. She shares the amazing idea of using it to top off stir-fryed veggies. I’m down.
Now you should be on your way to creating all sorts of wonderful concoctions with those soaked nuts.
But first, crackers.
You better share your combo ideas!!
- Combine the chia seeds and water together in a small bowl and let soak for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 175-200F. Prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper.
- When the timers up throw everything together in a food processor and blend for several seconds.
- Transfer the dough onto the prepared sheet pan. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and begin to "smoosh" down the dough until it forms an even layer.
- You can make these as thin or as thick as you would like. This time I made the thicker version and I baked them overnight. Around 12 hours. Next time I am planning to make thinner tortilla like chip. I would assume they would take about half the time to bake. I'll keep you posted!
