Jeff’s seed crackers with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat
We're developing quite the collection of recipes around Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat. Click around this site for upgrades to some recipe classics, like chocolate chip cookies and buckwheat pancakes.
This time we put our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, in the hot seat. This is his favorite cracker recipe, with a lot of expert help from his friends at the Food Lab. This recipe is vegan, grain-free, and gluten-free. It’s fairly spicy, but easy to rework into a basic cracker that you can herb, spice, flavor, and top to your taste.
These crackers are half chewy and half crispy, with mouth-popping flavor. Our Food Lab recommends them as an appetizer, and we all recommend them as a satisfying snack. Enjoy!
