Lisa’s Leek Crackers

Published November 18, 2011 by Polana Fowdrey

I bought some lovely crackers in Infinity foods in Brighton last week. They were made by a company called “Raw Lisa” and were delicious.

They were called “Seed Snaps” and contained buckwheat, seeds and onion.

I wanted to make something similar, but I had to change a couple of ingredients.

I had run out of sunflower seeds, so I used pine nuts. I didn’t have psyllum husk so I used a bit of sprouted flax seed.

Also, I never buy onions these days, but I did have a leek…

Where Lisa’s crackers have lots of nice crunchy seeds in them for a lovely texture, mine have a smoother consistency.

Having said that, the taste is along the same lines and it’s lovely to have some delicious homemade crackers, which are an approximation of a fantastic product on the market.

Here are my Raw Lisa-style crackers:

1 cup buckwheat groats

1 cup sunflower seeds

½ cup pine nut kernels

½ cup sesame seeds

1 leek

3 pitted dates

splash soy sauce

splash vinegar

1 tbs sprouted flax seed

Soak the seeds, dates and buckwheat for several hours

Process the leek and add the drained seeds

Process everything together until mixture is thick and homogenous. Add soy sauce and vinegar. Mix again.

Spread onto dehydrator sheet and dehydrate on 115F overnight until crispy.

Store in an airtight container in fridge or freezer. They will keep a few days, possibly weeks, but are more likely to be scoffed quickly.

  • I also love Raw Lisa crackers! Have you tried the onion flatbreads? They are my favourites, and go really well as a little raw pizza with fresh basil, sundried tomato, olive oil and raw tahini. Love your recipe too Poli!!
