Healthy Rice Cracker Toppings


Healthy Rice Cracker Toppings

We love rice crackers at GMB! They are gluten free, low in allergens and so versatile when it comes to TOPPINGS...pretty much anything goes. These Ceres Organics tamari rice crackers are delicious. Here are our four favourite toppings.

Option 1

  • hummus
  • radish
  • snow pea sprouts
  • pomegranate seeds

Spicy hummus recipe

Ingredients

  • 500g of Chickpeas
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1-2 lemons (taste bud dependant)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seed paste (Tahini)
  • 1 / 4 Teaspoon of Spice
  • Fresh garlic to your liking

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients into a food processor or blender
  2. Whiz up and serve

Option 2

  • almond butter
  • mango
  • coconut

Almond butter is especially high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps to fight damage caused by free radicals. Undesirable compounds in environmental toxins (think pollution and pesticides), free radicals are also produced in the body as a by-product of metabolism. By neutralising cell-damaging free radicals, vitamin E can help to resist the signs of aging and the development of disease.

Option 3

  • tahini,
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • coconut

Tahini is a paste made from lightly toasted sesame seeds. It tends to separate on sitting, especially if kept in fridge. You can bring the tahini back together by leaving the jar upside down for 15 minutes, then giving it a quick stir with a clean spoon.

Option 4

  • hummus
  • cucumber
  • snow pea sprouts
  • pomegranate seeds

Hummus is made from chickpeas which is one of my favourite carbohydrate sources. They are packed with fibre making them a low GI and also high in protein. Most hummus recipes contain tahini which is a source of healthy fats made from ground sesame seeds and a great non-dairy source of calcium.

Method

Layer on desired topping combinations for a quick and easy mini-meal.
