So this month's challenge for Daring Baker - Lavash Crackers & Toppings by Shelly Fish at http://shellyfish.wordpress.com/
I have to say that when I read the recipe I was a bit disappointed because I wanted an excuse to eat some sugar ladden dessert, and here is a recipe for Vegan Crackers and a choice of Vegan Dips. However, I was ever so WRONG! These crackers are tasty and hold a variety of dips well.
The first time I made them for an easy Friday dinner with homemade salsa, a Tuscan bean dip, and a non-vegan artichoke dip for hubby and the kids. I did top the crackers but forgot to roll the toppings in to the dough so most of the toppings fell off. Even so, this was a hit for dinner. They kids and hubby love the salsa and the artichoke dip; the Tuscan bean dip was a little too much for them but I liked it and actually used the left overs as a base with carrots, onions and celery in a chicken and veggie phyllo dough recipe which everyone loved (I just forgot to tell them they were eating the same bean dip they turned their nose up at only a day before heeheehee). The left over crackers the kids ate plain.
For the recipe for the crackers, click over the Shelly Fish above. This is a very doable recipe, just roll out the dough very thin and don't forget to roll over the dough once the toppings are sprinkled on. The Tuscan bean dip I found on the internet, just click above and it will take you over to it. The salsa and artichoke dip are recipes that I have found in different forms and I have just added and played with them until they fit my family's taste buds. I don't have exact measurements, but if you really want the recipe leave a comment and I'll send you my best estimate.
I can say that I will use this recipe again - most likely for Thanksgiving to set out with my MIL's cheese ball. Thanks to those DB for another great recipe!Lavash cracker with salsa.
