Wheat Free Meat Free’s Gluten Free Vegan Garlic Rosemary Crackers39
Piggies! It is DAY 28 of Gluten Free Baking With KitchenAid and we celebrate the last 3 days of our KitchenAid Stand Mixer Giveaway with these delicious gluten free vegan garlic rosemary crackers created by Kalinda Piper from Wheat Free Meat Free. These crackers have a delicious flavour and texture using a mixture of almond meal, sorghum flour, and potato starch, and binding it all together with flaxmeal. Aren't flaxseeds a gift from the Gods in the gluten free vegan world?! Just AMAZING! If you have never made crackers before, give it a go! You will be surprised at how easy it is! Kalinda's crackers are wonderful with vegan dips and spreads, or with a delicious salad or soup.
Kalinda says about rolling the crackers, "A lot of cracker recipes suggest that you roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment. I found that to be a big pain. But it might help if you’re having problems with dough sticking to your rolling pin. Also, don’t be afraid to use your hands to help shape the dough and patch up cracks. If you have coarse salt, a little sprinkle on top before baking would be nice." I did roll mine out between two sheets of paper because I just found it quicker and easier. But either way works!
Be sure to check more of Kalinda's sensational gluten free vegetarian recipes. Some of my favourites are: the vegan citrusy edamame soup, vegan cucumber radish salad, sprouted mung bean and coconut fritters, aloo gobi, and the vegan avocado pie with an almond pistachio crust! OH MY! Wheat Free Meat Free is absolutely LOADED with exotic, interesting, easy gluten free vegetarian recipes. It is one of my favourite vegetarian recipe blogs.
I kept coming across Kalinda's amazing blog during google searches, where she would be right there at the top with her fabulous gluten free vegetarian creations. I was SO excited when I finally got to meet her in person at the Nourished Food Bloggers Conference in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. She, and her hubby Mike, who also runs the blog, Oblivious Investor were nicer than I could have possibly imagined. I really enjoyed spending time with them. I call them "the quiet achievers" because they are both super smart and talented, but incredibly humble.
Do you know what is incredible about Kalinda's blog? She is NOT gluten free OR vegetarian! She creates these incredible recipes FOR MIKE! How cool is that?! Kalinda's sister, Larissa, also shares recipes on Wheat Free Meat Free. So this is a real family effort. I just LOVE these people. Trust me, if you just want fantastic recipes check them out. You will be in Piggy HEAVEN!
Kalinda, Thanks for sharing these delicious crackers with us. You ROCK!

Piggy Cooking Tips
a quick easy way to clean this “cling-on” pieces out of your garlic press
If you are using a garlic press to mince your garlic you will know how hard they can to clean sometimes. There are always a few little stubborn bits that refuse to let go of the garlic party. Next time you are replacing your toothbrush (I replace mine about once a month) recycle it and then wash it. Keep it under the sink to scrub out your garlic press under running water to help remove those little cling on pieces.
