I love these crackers. They're nutty, flavorful, and are a perfect accompaniment to dips and spreads. Also, by simply changing the spices, you can make these to suit your tastes. I really enjoy Mrs. Dashes no salt seasoning blends.
- 1 1⁄2 cups boiling water
- 3⁄4 cup polenta or 3⁄4 cup cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon mixed herbs (for these, I used an onion and garlic seasoning blend)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons soy margarine
- Bring water to a boil. Add polenta and herbs, and cook until creamy. Remove from heat, and add salt and margarine. On a well-oiled cookie sheet, spread out batter until thin. Score into pieces with a sharp knife. Bake in a 350 degree oven 30-55 minutes, until crispy and brown. Cool and serve.
These are tasty crackers with a nice flavour and a good texture (mine were still a bit gooey after 40 minutes of baking, but they do have a crunch as well). I subbed regular butter for the soy margarine and used an organic blend of italian herbs and spices, which went really well with the polenta. Thanks a lot for sharing this tasty recipe with us, thedeath458! Made and reviewed for one of my "babies" in Spring PAC 2009.
