If you have wandered down the cracker aisle lately at Fresh Choice Nelson supermarket, you may have noticed the wonderful array of flavours and styles available. I have a few favourites that help to make snack time more enjoyable.
Breadman gluten free crunchy corn crackers, these delightfully dense crackers often replace bread in my lunchbox, they taste great and are super filling. Top with Pic’s almond or cashew butter, slices of banana and toasted coconut.
Dovedale horipito multiseed crackers, gluten free, crunchy and full of goodness with a lovely peppery bite from the native horipito plant. Thinly spread Urban Hippies misomite, followed with a layer of Chantal unhulled tahini, slices of avocado and cherry tomatoes.
Ceres make two of my favourite rice crackers which are perfect to take to a party, try their green tea and seaweed brown rice crackers and their black rice crackers. Both are delicious dipped into the Just Hummus beetroot flavour.
Not a cracker… But one of my old favourites is nori. Tear or cut into four pieces, top with hummus, lettuce, gherkins and red pepper.
Real foods organic sesame corn thins, topped with bean sprouts and the following recipe for parsley pesto. All the ingredients can be found at Fresh Choice Nelson supermarket.
- 2 cups fresh parsley or any combo of herbs such as basil, parsley coriander
- 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 4 tbsp flaxseed or olive oil

Roughly chop the parsley. Grind the sunflower seeds in the food processor then add parsley, oil, nutritional yeast and garlic and blend well. Mix in the juice of 1 lemon, taste and season. If the mixture is too dry you can add extra oil or a dash of water until it comes together.
