Gluten-Free Chickpea Dukkah Crackers

Do you need a healthy change with your TV snacks? Here’s an easy, nutritional, full of fibre snack that you can enjoy while watching your favourite TV show.

Hummus Dip

Most people are familiar with hummus, made with cooked chickpeas and seasoned with earthy spices – this recipe follows a traditional method, but with a few extra tips to cook the chickpeas further in bicarbonate of soda (this makes them extra tender) and to add iced water (for a creamier texture).

Gluten-Free Chickpea Dukkah Crackers

The crackers are perfect with the hummus dip, especially as the dukkah spice blend really adds some Mediterranean flavours to them and goes with the hummus dip well.

Homemade Dukkah Spice Blend

Dukkah is a dry roasted spice blend mainly made with almonds, sesame seeds and dried whole spices. This combination is crushed into a grainy mixture that is delicious and aromatic in many dishes, including as a flavouring in the chickpea crackers.

Traditionally, dukkah is eaten with pieces of bread that are dipped in olive oil with a final dip in the dukkah mixture. If you have some spare gluten-free bread, especially baguette pieces or bread rolls, try this combination out.

You can increase the portions in the recipe card to make a jar full of the dukkah blend for other recipes. The dukkah keeps for 2 weeks chilled in a glass jar.
