Garlic Rosemary Vegan Crackers with a Twist Recipe by Spicie Foodie

Happy Tuesday everyone! Thank you for all the well wishes regarding the technical difficulties. Fortunately I had an older copy of my database in addition to copies of some of the posts that were lost. As you can see things are up and running and I’m excited to share a brand new recipe with you for my current favorite homemade crackers.

Garlic Rosemary Vegan Crackers with a Twist Recipe by Spicie Foodie

These crispy crackers always make my belly happy. They are quite a mixture of flavors that at first look may seem strange, but somehow they just work so well together. We really like them and I hope you do too. I’ve tried to make them as healthy as possible and so I’ve used olive oil as the fat and substituted half the flour with whole wheat. I’m keeping it short today and will get to the recipe straight away. Thanks for stopping by!

Recipe type: Vegan, Crackers, Baked, Snacks
Cuisine: Baked, International, Vegan, Fusion
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (140g) a.p. flour
  • 1 cup (140g) whole wheat flour, fine grade
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Vegeta spice, no MSG variety
  • ½ tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 3 tsp. dried rosemary
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ cup (118ml) + 2 tbsp. lukewarm water
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil, use a good quality
You’ll Also Need:
  • extra flour for rolling
  • coarse salt for topping, optional
  • a little water or oil to brush crackers, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400f or 200c, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or line with silicon slip mat, set aside. In a large bowl sift the two flours, and baking powder together. Stir in all of the spices and stir until well incorporated. Make a well in the center of the bowl, pour the ½ cup (118ml) of water and all of the olive oil into the bowl. Stir or work the dough with your hands until it comes together, gradually add the remaining 2 tbsp. of water if needed. The dough needs to be soft and elastic. Set aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Depending on how large the baking sheet is, you may want to divide the dough in half. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until very thin, you can adjust the thickness as you like but make sure you adjust the baking time. Transfer the dough onto baking sheet. Use a knife or pizza cutter to score the dough into squares or desired cracker shapes. You won’t need to cut all the way through because the dough shrinks and pulls apart as it bakes so they will break off easily. Use a fork to puncture the dough. Brush the crackers with water or olive oil then sprinkle the coarse salt over the crackers.
  3. Place baking sheet in center of oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. If you roll out the dough very thin start keeping an eye on the crackers after 8 minutes to prevent burning. Allow to cool completely before breaking individual crackers apart and storing or eating. Repeat the same process for the remaining dough.
  4. Store in a cool dry place as you would other crackers.

Delightful crackers! I bet they are quite addictive. Perfect with a slice of gorgonzola cheese.

Cheers,

Oh no, I’m so sorry about your technical difficulites, Nancy…that is so frustrating. I’m so happy you’re back up and running, and I hope everything is completely back to normal and nothing was lost permanently.

These crackers are beautiful! I haven’t made homemade crackers in forever and every now and then I get the urge to do so…I think these tasty little beauties will be the next version I try. :)

Hope your database issue is behind and everything is up and running. I get nervous when things like that happen. One day I really want to make homemade crackers. I really like the part where you cut into squares… I’m weird but it looks fun to cut into square shapes! These rosemary crackers sounds yum!

26 Spicie Foodie November 7, 2012 at 2:46 PM

Hi Nami,
Me too, lol:) It’s much easier in squares and requires less preparation time too.

They are perfect for that. We eat them as snacks, with cheese or on the side of soup. Enjoy:)

31 Holly November 7, 2012 at 1:08 PM

I’ve been wondering about using olive oil instead of butter for crackers, so I’ll have to give these a try when I make my next batch. What is Vegeta Spice though? I’ve never heard of it.

Reply

32 Spicie Foodie November 7, 2012 at 2:52 PM

Hi Holly,

I’ve found that olive oil works great -I use it for everything. Vegeta is a seasoning mix for all sorts of foods. If you can’t find it then it’s okay to omit.

Wow, these look terrific! I never make my own crackers, which is silly – if I did, I could get exactly the flavor I want. And rosemary is such a great flavor in anything, but it’s particularly nice in crackers. And with the other flavors you’re using, these must be amazing! Really nice – thanks.

That is exactly why I love making my own crackers. The combinations are endless. Thanks!

Having tasty crackers in the house is as dangerous as having a full cookie jar and these are some tasty crackers! Love the spices you used and the coarse salt on top was a classy finish. Saving this post for when the cookie jar is empty. :)

What a wonderful & simple recipe! I made these salt-free, and baked them in shape of little cups(using a mini muffin tray) so I could fill them up with all sorts of deliciousness. Turned out so well that this is going to be my go-to cracker recipe! Thank you so much.
