Beets, what comes to your mind when you think about this particular vegetable? I remember fresh carrot and beet juice in the winter months. But many people don’t have pleasant memories about this nutritionally dense vegetable. Some of you might not have experienced the taste of fresh beets which is always better than cooked beets. I love using fresh beets in my smoothie recipes but cooked beets are suitable to use in many recipes. I made these almond rosemary crackers with cooked beets.
I prefer to use roasted beets in my salad recipes and steamed beet for making smoothies, muffins, cupcakes or cookies. Steaming is quicker than roasting too. I have used homemade blanched almond flour which I made from the leftover almond pulp as I made some homemade almond milk the other day. Otherwise, you can use any regular Blanched Almond Flour.
Recently I got a 10lb bag of beets for less than 3 bucks, as beet goes on sale in Sept- Oct over here in Canada. I have used beets so many times in my salads, smoothies, and even as a pizza topping. So I thought of making something different with beets; many people think that crackers can not be baked at home. But I love making no additive homemade crackers in my favorite flavors and they are so easy to make too.
If you are not used to baking even then you should try this recipe; these crackers are so easy to make because of almond flour. As almond flour is not sticky and dough is very easy to handle than regular dough. Even if you don’t like beets you can give a try to this recipe as the taste of beet is unnoticeable. I have used fresh rosemary for this recipe but you can use any of your favorite herbs like sage, oregano etc. The roasted beet almond rosemary crackers take less than 30 minutes to make if you have roasted/cooked beets on hand. Otherwise, this recipe will take extra 10-15 minutes if you have to steam the beets first.
