Hello, my name is Crystal and I’m a snack-aholic.

Looking back on my posts I’ve realized that I am a snack-aholic.  It seems like all I post are yummy vegan snacks or treats.  I swear I do eat actual meals {shocking I know}.  Since I have most of my fun in the kitchen when the little one is napping it’s usually snack time – not lunch time or dinner time.  Here’s another one of my yummy snacky creations:

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Hummus

1 can of garbanzo beans

1 Tbsp tahini

1 tsp sesame oil

1 Tbsp olive oil

3/4 cup roasted red peppers

2 drops doTERRA basil oil

pinch of salt

Sriracha hot sauce to taste {I like it HOT}

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and whizz.  Wah la!

I ate half of this myself with raw broccoli in one sitting – ok, it was my lunch that day.  I also had some with my homemade kale crackers.  Yum!

What do you like the pair your hummus with?

Easy Homemade Vegan and Gluten Free Crackers

After I ran out of cauliflower, I needed something to eat my hummus with so I made these.  I’m been wanting to make a cracker for days now and finally did.  I don’t know what I was waiting for…these are so easy!

Easy Homemade Vegan and Gluten Free Crackers

2 cups almond flour (you can make your own by grinding almonds in a food processor)

3 tsp golden flax meal

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp white pepper (more if you like)

2 Tbsp chopped parsley (or any herb, parsley is what I had and goes well with hummus)

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sesame oil

2 Tbsp water

Directions:

Combine dry ingredients and herbs.  Add oils and water and mix well.  Roll the dough into a ball.  Using parchment paper, one sheet on top and one on bottom, roll till dough is approx 1/8 inch.  Place on cookie sheet and remove top layer of parchment.  Score dough with pizza cutter into desired cracker size.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until crispy and golden.

These paired perfectly with the herbed green hummus I made earlier today.

Let me know what you think and what you did differently!
