Poppy seed crackers are just perfect with a creamy chive dip! Easy gluten free recipe.
I’m always making snacks, and one of my favorite things to make is a big batch of gluten free crackers. It is so very easy to make your own crackers, and it’s really inexpensive, too. I decided to just add some poppy seeds to them this time, and they were a big hit!
The spread is really simple as well…just blend the ingredients together in a blender or a food processor. If you can eat dairy, this dip will be delicious with dairy butter and cream cheese, too. It’s not just for vegans. :)
Poppy seed crackers are so festive looking with their little black polka dots, but if you can’t do poppy seeds, feel free to leave them out.
Poppy Seed Crackers with Garlic and Chive Spread
For the crackers:
For the spread:
- 1/2 cup Daiya brand vegan cream cheese softened
- 2 Tablespoons vegan buttery spread softened
- 1/4 cup chives chopped
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/3 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In the large bowl, combine the gluten free flour, salt, and poppy seeds. Add the water, oil, and melted vegan buttery spread. Stir to combine. If needed, add a little more water. The dough will come together into a ball. Divide into two balls.
Place one dough ball on a piece of parchment paper and cover with another sheet of parchment paper. Roll with a rolling pin until the dough is very thin. Remove the top sheet of parchment, and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.
Slice the dough into squares, but do not separate. Brush with a bit of water, and sprinkle with sea salt.
Repeat with the other ball of dough.
Place the cookie sheets in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Rotate the cookie sheets halfway through. Keep an eye on the crackers so they don't burn. They will be lightly golden and crisp when done.
To make the spread:
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until combined.
Put dip in a bowl and refrigerate for an hour or so to enhance the flavor.
