Turmeric + Fennel Seed Crackers (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
Beautifully crunchy and delicious gluten-free and vegan crackers with subtle hints of fennel seed and turmeric!
These beautiful crackers have such an amazingly lovely flavor! The striking balance of fennel, sea salt, pepper and turmeric flavors really complement one another, and make for a wonderfully delightful snack.
The perfect crisp crunchiness of these crackers also make them the perfect choice for dipping or holding a variety of toppings; and you would never know that they were gluten free!
We personally love them as an accompaniment to our 'apples & cheese' night (Fridays!), as they really add a depth of boldness and flavor when served alongside other hors d'oeuvres.
And, did you know that both fennel seeds and turmeric have amazing medicinal properties?! You can read more about turmeric here in a previous recipe post of mine. As for the fennel seeds, not only are they high in fiber, iron, copper, potassium and folate, they also soothe the digestive process, act as a galactagogue (increasing breast milk production) in nursing mothers, and make for one powerful diuretic! I do love it when my food can be both incredibly tasty and healing -- don't you?
Whether you are looking for a tasty chip alternative, an appetizer for your next party, or a healthy kid-friendly snack -- these delicious crackers will please you with their outstanding flavor, texture, and magical healing properties!
