Beet Hummus & BBQ Flax Seed Crackers – GF with Raw options

1 year ago I was dehydrating  Cabbage Leaf Chips

This year I made 2 trays of dehydrated BBQ flavored Flax Seed Crackers.  So I needed some dip to go with right?

For mine, I added in a can of Chick Peas and a little more lemon to make it less thick.  I would add more seasonings if I had just been serving it with veggies but since the flax crackers are bursting with spice and a little heat, the subtle taste of the  hummus was just right.

BBQ Flax Seed Crackers
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups whole flax seeds
  • 1 cup almond meal (use raw almonds for raw options)
  • 10 oz. Hemp seeds (ditto)
  • 1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds (ditto ditto)
  • 15 oz. can pizza sauce (10 cherry tomatoes crushed for raw)
  • 1 tsp. powdered garlic or 2 cloves minced fine
  • 1 Tbs powdered BBQ seasoning (omit for raw)
  • ½ tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Combine the flax seeds (unground) with the pizza sauce and set aside for 10 minutes. Stir together all other ingredients and then fold them into the flax / pizza sauce mixture.
  2. Pour portions of the cracker dough out onto dehydrator sheets to about ⅓ inch thick. Putting a little oil on your fingers or a spoon will help to smooth out the batter.
  3. Dehydrate the crackers at 145 degrees for 45 minutes. Carefully flip sections of your crackers over and reduce heat down to 115. Score into squares at this point if desired and then dehydrate for an additional 15 to 20 hours. Break apart crackers when they've reached the desired crispness. Store in a sealed container for up to 2 months.

You really can’t get better tasting fiber into your diet than these crackers.  And I made a great discovery after the hummus was all gone that the crackers make fabulous croutons for soups and salads as well.  Super flavorful crunch for your salads and a nice texture for soups.  You’ll really be happy you gave these crackers a try.  Trust me.

    Someone commented on a post once that they didn’t understand why Vegans were always trying to replicate the recipes from meat dishes in non-meat version. I never understood why they cared for one thing, but…duh…cause they tasted good? BBQ isn’t so much about meat as it is spice. You gotta try these cause they’re such great croutons you’ll forget to eat them as crackers 😉

    Superbeautiful combination…that vivid magenta hummus cheers me right the heck up! You’re right…those crackers would be fabulous with soup too. I’d love to try them with a winter-worthy chunky mushroom soup. Many thanks for the recipe! 🙂

      You’re exactly right about the soup. I’m one who needs some texture in my soups and these were perfect floating on top bring a hot bowl of creamed veggies to life. Future post will show how I used them as croutons. Be sure to let us know if you come up with that Mushroom soup recipe. Thanks 😉
