You can make these discard crackers with cold refrigerated gluten-free sourdough starter or fed/active starter, both will work. Enjoy this snack, it’s really good with dip or salsa!
NOTE: If using sourdough discard, make sure it’s from the later stages of creating your first gluten-free starter as the flavour will be milder and not as strong as at the beginning. You might like the taste better if your starter has a pleasant aroma as opposed to a strong one. Or if you tend to remove some from your established GF starter that discard will work too.
- 1/2 cup (125g) GF sourdough starter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil*
- 1/2 teaspoon za’atar (spice mix)**
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Mix ingredients in a bowl. With a soft spatula, spread the dough mixture onto the parchment paper. The thinner, the better as it will help the crackers get super crispy.
TIP: If you love seedy crackers, feel free to sprinkle seeds (hemp, poppy, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, etc.) on the mixture.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. Break apart and enjoy!
These make great tortilla type chips for anyone that can’t consume corn!
Store the crackers/chips in a sealed container or the freezer for maximum freshness!
*If you prefer oil-free crackers, try plant milk (hemp, oat, seed/nut milk) as an alternative. They might not get as crispy, but I’m pretty sure they will be as tasty!
**Za’atar CONTAINS SESAME SEEDS! For sesame-free alternatives sub with fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, fresh herbs, dry herbs, paprika, seeds (poppy, sunflower, hemp, pumpkin), nutritional yeast, etc.
Important: Make sure the ingredients you purchase are prepared in a facility free from the top allergens you avoid. Gluten-free products should be certified GF and clearly labelled. Consult your medical professional with your dietary questions.
