Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 cups (340 g) raw, shelled sunflower seeds
  2. 1 cups (180 g) grated cheddar cheese
  3. teaspoon salt, plus additional for sprinkling
  4. cup (60 ml) water

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325F (170C, or gas mark 3).

In a food processor with the S-blade attached, grind the sunflower seeds to a fine meal.

Add the cheddar and salt and pulse the processor six to eight times to blend.

Add the water and pulse until a dough ball forms.

Cover a cookie sheet with a piece of baking parchment.

Turn the dough out onto the parchment, tear off another sheet of parchment, and put it on top of the dough.

Through the top sheet of parchment, use your hands to press the dough into as thin and even a sheet as you can.

Take the time to get the dough quite thin?the thinner, the better, so long as there are no holes in the dough.

Peel off the top layer of parchment.

Sprinkle a little salt over the surface and gently press it in into place.

Use a thin, sharp, straight-bladed knife or a pizza cutter to score the dough into squares or diamonds.

Bake for about 30 minutes.

Peel the crackers off the parchment, break along the scored lines, and let them cool.

Store them in a container with a tight lid.
