Caveman Crackers

Paleo, gluten-free, vegan



1 Tbls ground chia seeds

4 Tbls warm water

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp chives, minced

1 tsp rosemary, minced

1 cup nut pulp (almonds or cashews work well)

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1 Tbls nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 t ground pepper

3-4 Tbls olive oil

Optional toppings: Nutritional yeast, Sesame Seeds, Sea Salt, Ground Flax 



Preheat oven to 350F. Dissolve chia seeds in water and let thicken. Mix remaining ingredients and combine with thickened chia mixture. Roll mixture between two sheets of parchment until desired thickness (the thinner you roll, the crispier the cracker.) Score and bake for 20 minutes. Break, flip and return to oven for another 12-15 minutes. Crackers will crisp as they cool. 

Budgetarian Tip #1

 Waste not, want not. 

To better stretch your food dollar, prioritize using all partys of the foods you buy. For example, buy carrots and beets with the greens still attached—then use the greens as ingredients in other recipes. One of our favorites? Carrot Top Pesto. No need to spend money on basil when you have carrot tops around. Use this quick sauce as a flavorful sandwich spread, stirred into pasta, or as a soup garnish.



1 cup carrot tops

1clove garlic

¼ cup toasted walnuts

Juice of 1 lemon

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt, to taste


In a food processor, place carrot tops, garlic, toasted walnuts, lemon juice, and blend. Add the olive oil and process until smooth. Salt to taste.
