The Sprouted Kitchen’s Gluten-Free Crackers

I love a good cracker: one that’s subtly flavored with herbs and just the right amount of sea salt. A cracker that pairs well with cheese and doesn’t break apart even when you’re a little too aggressive with whatever dip floats your boat.

Gluten-free crackers that meets the above criteria gets bonus points.

I recently found cracker perfection in these nutty/seedy beauties, the recipe for which comes from the brand new cookbook: The Sprouted Kitchen: A Tastier Take on Whole Foods.

I discovered Sprouted Kitchen a couple of years ago, but I remember the first time I landed on the site like it was yesterday. I was immediately captivated by the combination of Sara’s winning whole foods recipes and Hugh’s stunning photos, and the wonder I felt returns every time I visit their blog.

I am so impressed with what Sara and Hugh have achieved with their first cookbook: it’s positivity lovely, and it’s warm and welcoming style will have you running to the kitchen. I’m working my way through the recipes: in addition to these crackers (and the Lemon and Herb Hummus pictured here with them), I’ve made the Coconut Loaf, the Greek Grilled Chicken with Tzatziki, and the Black Cherry Refresher so far. Everything has been terrific…kudos to the Sprouted Kitchen team: you two should be very, very proud :)
