Crispy, nutritious, savoury flax seeds thins that will make you come back for more!
You will be surprised to see how easy it is to make these delicious Flax & Pumpkin Turmeric thins….
And you can truly create your own flax crackers by adding any seeds, herbs or spices you like.
I have used pumpkin seeds and turmeric here, but you can also use hemp or sesame seeds, cumin, oregano, rosemary, garlic powder… the options are unlimited 🙂
Enjoy them on their own or with your favourite dip, or try them with this Pickled Red Cabbage and Onion Relish for a mouth-watering appetizer. Yum!
Preheat the oven to 180C, 160 fan, gas mark 4.
Grind the flax and pumpkin seeds and add them to a medium-size bowl with the turmeric, chili and salt, if using. Mix well.
Add the water and mix well.
With clean hands, form a dough and shape it into a ball.
If the dough is too sticky, add some more flax meal.
Place the ball between two pieces of parchment paper and, using a rolling pin, roll it to your desired thickness.
Cut the dough into circles with the help of a glass. Roll any extra into more thins.
Remove the piece of parchment paper on top, and slide the paper with the thins on a baking sheet. Prick each cracker with a fork.
Bake until golden. Baking time depends on the thickness of your thins, the thicker they are, the longer it will take to bake them.
I like my thins quite thin, so they are ready in 7 minutes or so. Check them frequently to prevent burning.

Note: the ingredients listed here are for a small jar of about 180g. If your jar is bigger than this, just increase the amounts.
In a small pot, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt and spices and bring it to the boil.
Let it simmer for a minute until the sugar is completely dissolved, remove from heat and set aside.
Pack the cabbage and the onion tight in your glass jar.
Once it has cooled down a bit, pour the vinegar mixture in the jar, until the vegetables are completely submerged. Add more vinegar if needed.
Close the jar with the lid and shake a couple of times to mix well.
Store in the fridge for four hours before consuming.
Once opened, it will keep in the fridge for more than a week.

A new year has just started, but it feels like last year is still dragging on.
We are living through unprecedented and unsettling times to say the least, anxiety and fear are still very common among us, with many feeling quite overwhelmed.
This constant state of fight or flight we have been plunged in since almost a year can create havoc in our health.
This is why it is incredibly important to cultivate few practices to calm and center our minds.
One of the oldest and most effective of these practices is to breathe, following different techniques.
Learning how to breathe is a powerful tool that we can use every time we feel worrying and upsetting thoughts creeping in.
It is always available to us, it’s free!, and it will give results within minutes.
The following are the best five breathing techniques you should try today 🙂
Diaphragmatic breathing involves fully engaging our core (stomach, abdominal muscles and diaphragm) when breathing.
