Chickpea & Polenta Homemade Crackers {Part Two of Party Nibbles Ideas with Philadelphia Australia}

Chickpea & Polenta Cracker & Bagel Chips Recipes {Quick Party Nibbles Ideas with Philadelphia Cream Cheese} | www.fussfreecooking.comWhenever I have to cater for a large group of friends and family, it is important for me to make sure every special dietary requirement is well look after. Nothing worse than you’re invited to a party where you cannot enjoy the food like everyone else. Although I am not a practicing vegan or vegetarian or on a gluten free diet, I try to make an effort to learn some recipes for my friends who have these dietary requirements. Plus, it gave me an opportunity to explore unique ingredient combinations that otherwise would not have been thought of.

When Philly gifted me Mexican Salsa Philly Pourover to try, I wanted to pair it with simple homemade crackers with a little homage to corn chips. Okay, I could have just gone with packet corn chips, but I thought I would try something out of the box like these chickpea polenta crackers. Sometimes, I think cheeses should not take all the glory from the nibbles table, don’t you reckon? *wink*

I love how saucy this Philly Pourover is! You know how much I love a Mexican themed party nibbles (case in point here). This Mexican Salsa Philly Pourover really hits the spot! You can also try other flavours such as Sweet Chilli and Apricot and Fig.

Gluten Free Chickpea & Polenta Homemade Crackers

Gluten Free Chickpea & Polenta Homemade Crackers

The amount crackers are designed to go with the 220g Philadelphia Pourovers

Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 2 cups chickpea flour + extra for dusting
  • 1 cup instant polenta
  • A pinch of salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 cup cold water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 160C Fan Force/ 180C Convection Oven. Line baking tray with a baking paper and drizzle some olive oil over it. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add chickpea flour, polenta, salt, pepper and stir to combine with a fork.
  3. Slowly stir in cold water until a dough is form. Use your hand to knead until the dough is pliable. If the dough feels sticky, add more chickpea flour.
  4. Dust the rolling pin and the pastry board generously with chickpeas flour. Pinch a quarter portion of the dough and dust it with chickpea flour. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin as flat as you can without breaking the dough. Use a knife to cut into squares or rectangles. Repeat this step with the remaining dough.
  5. Place them on the prepared baking tray and gently prick the surface with a fork. Lightly drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the crackers become golden brown.
  6. Serve these crackers with your choice of dips or in my case, with the super saucy and delicious Mexican Salsa Philadelphia Pourover.

  1. These crackers look great! The chickpea flour and polenta combination is intriguing. I had to throw out a partial bag of chickpea flour recently b/c it went bad before I figured out what to do with it…next time I’ll know better, and try making these crackers!

  3. I tried these and they tasted good at first but they made me feel sick later. I would not make this again because it did not agree with me at all.

  4. @ Cecilia – me too!
    The non -instant corn meal that is!
    Would appreciate it if anyone has tested it with the chickpea flour and whether it works just as well?
