Spicy Lentil Crackers for #SundaySupper

spicy lentil crackers

This week the #SundaySupper team is celebrating all things crunchy! Thanks Susan from Girl In The Little Red Kitchen for hosting!
When I first heard the theme was “crunchy goodness”, I thought, hmmm something with nuts. No wait, celery. Celery is the crunchiest thing I know. But I’m not a big fan of raw celery and that doesn’t really sound like a recipe.
I have been making homemade crackers lately and experimenting with different flours. I came across a few recipes using bean and lentil flours.
Bean flours aren’t crunchy by themselves but with a little olive oil and water they do make tasty gluten-free lentil crackers.

Spicy Lentil Crackers

lentil cracker ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup lentil flour (I used red)
  • 1/4 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 375. Mix flours, oil and spices together.
Add water 1 teaspoon at a time until dough is moist, doesn’t crumble but not sticky.
lentil cracker dough
Roll dough out between a sheet of parchment paper to about 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 1-inch squares.
lentil cracker dough rolled
Bake at 375 for 5 minutes and flip crackers and continue to bake until golden brown.
Cool on bake sheet before putting in an airtight container.
