hanukkah crackers and olive dip

I took a break from the Hunt + Gather diet tonight to make these crackers.. I'm thinking I'll be adding some more grains back in my diet.. slowly. These crackers should be made all the time.. not just for Hanukkah. Same with the dip. YUM.

1 cup GF all purpose flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp almond milk - you can use water if you don't have nut milk.
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Mix the flours, then add the milk and vinegar and mix until just combined. Let it sit for 20 minutes or so..

Oven! 350.
then, add:
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 heaping tsp salt

Fold the new ingredients into the dough until thoroughly incorporated.. Then roll it out. I used parchment paper because I don't have a nice counter top. And cut into the shapes you desire..
Place the raw biscuits on a cookie sheet and pop them in the oven for 20 minutes.

Now for the Olive Dip:
1 can of black olives, san the juice.
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil (or EVOO as the cool kids say)
some fresh oregano
3 cloves of garlic

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor or blender, then serve topped with smoked paprika. (surprise)

This appetizer is so easy, impressive, delicious.. oh.. and pretty darn good for you.

Enjoy :)
