- Today I'm gonna show you how to use nut seasoned spices to make your own homemade crackers and then I'm gonna show you a cool way to go Greek with your guacamole. Let's get started. To get started on our crackers, we are going to add our nuts and seeds to our food processor. So, we have some walnuts. Fantastic for your skin. Pumpkin seeds and some sunflower seeds. And let's blend it up until they're finely ground. Looking good. Now, let's go in with the rest of the ingredients. We have ground flax seeds and hemp seeds, which are a great source of plant protein. A fourth of a teaspoon of garlic powder. A fourth of a teaspoon of red pepper flakes. More if you like it to be spicier. We have some dried rosemary and thyme. Alright, and then a little bit of Himalayan sea salt as well and pepper. Blend that up. And then ... Juice from one whole lemon. And then we're gonna take half of one of your lemons and get a little zest in here as well. The lemon zest is gonna add a little bit of tang and the freshness you're looking for in these crackers. And one more little spin. And we'll be good to go. Looking good. The mixture is gonna be pretty wet and that is what you're looking for. And you're just gonna flatten it out to about a fourth an inch thick. I love to make a batch of these crackers at the beginning of the week and just snack on them or throughout the week. Alright, our cracker dough is looking great. I'm gonna pop this in the oven for 20 minutes. Rotate the pan. And then cook it off for another 15 minutes. Our giant cracker is golden brown and looking beautiful. We are gonna let that cool. So since we kind of went Greek on the cracker, we're gonna do a Greek guacamole today. We have three avocados. This dip is super easy to make ahead before anyone's coming over or at the beginning of the week and have it all week long. Alright, hit it with a little bit of salt and pepper. Whenever I make homemade guac I usually season with salt and pepper as I go 'cause it's going to take more than you think. Let's mash that up. I personally love a chunky guac, so I'm gonna leave some chunks in there. If you prefer more of a smooth guac, keep mashing. Alright, the avocados are mashed. Let's add in the mixings. So, we have some cherry tomatoes. Kalamata olives, diced red onions, some chopped up cucumber and some garlic as well. And then we're gonna chop up some fresh parsley as well. Just a rough chop with this. Anytime you have the chance to add fresh herbs to your dishes, go for it. It makes a world of a difference. Hit it with a little bit of lemon juice for that acidity. A little more salt and pepper. And let's mix it up. The tang from the Kalamata olives and the lemon is really going to compliment the creaminess of the avocado in this dish. Alright, I think we're ready to go. The cracker has cooled. Let's just break it up with our hands. It'll make it look super rustic and fun. Pick your size, big, small, everything in between. They look rustic, nice and rustic if they're all different shapes and sizes. There we go. And then I almost forgot the spices. So, we have some thyme and oregano. There we go. Let's mix that in before we plated that. So many colors. So many smells. Top it up with a little bit of hemp seeds. A little sprinkle. Your parsley spurs. Going in. So much flavor going on. Oregano, thyme. This recipe is a tasty twist on guacamole and a super fun way to go Greek.
