Almond Kale Crackers

If the idea of making your own crackers sounds intimidating, you’re not alone. However, it needn’t be! Particularly if you are currently harvesting a lot of kale from your garden, or if you grabbed a bunch at the Farmer’s Market that you don’t have a clue what to do with, these crackers are easy, they work seasonally, and are completely NON-intimidating!! I promise.

Warning: they will look brilliantly green before you pop them in the oven…

The flavours are strong in this cracker, which I love, but you can easily dial down the flavour by omitting the garlic and onion powder or cutting the quantities in half. I served these up with some herbed cashew cream cheese and sliced cucumber, which was unreal! But they would do really well with some traditional hummus, olives, and a few chunks of candied salmon. However you like to serve them, enjoy and let me know how you like them!
