Cuisine: Vegan

  • ¼ cup of dry tricolore quinoa this is usually white, black and red - but you can use plain quinoa if you like
  • ½ cup gram / chickpea flour
  • 1 ½ tsp ground sea salt
  • 2 tsp spice of choice cumin, smoked paprika or a mix
  • 50 ml water may need extra
  • Olive oil for greasing
  1. Pre-heat over to 180C and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Brush parchment with olive oil.
  2. Rinse the quinoa. Put in a pot and cover with boiling water. Simmer quinoa for 12-15 minutes or until it is tender. Then drain, leaving to cool.
  3. Place in one bowl the flour, spice(s), salt and cooked quinoa. Then add the water - you may need a bit of extra water to make sure the flour has absorbed all of it.
  4. Spread the mix on to the baking parchment in little shapes. The crackers need to be very thin which will make them the perfect crispy texture. You can choose the shape you want - rectangle, triangle, or little rounds.

  5. Bake for around 15 minutes. Then take the crackers out of oven, turn them over carefully so they don’t break, and bake for another 15 minutes. They will be crispy and golden but not too brown.

  6. Serve topped with dips, tapenade, or other yummy toppings as a canape, or serve as part of a vegan cheese platter.
