Review: Rosemary Herb Lentil Crackers

Fresh rosemary is one of my favorite herbs. When I found these crackers baked by Mediterranean Snacks, I picked them right up!

I wrote a post last year about these crackers hitting the market, but had not seen them in a store until recently. I thought they would be great as a snack or served along side of some soup or hummus. The crackers have decent nutritional stats being that they are made from lentils. Once I started eating these crackers, I didn’t want to stop. They had such a delicate flavor with a subtle hint of rosemary and a light crisp.

Last night I grabbed a small bowl of crackers to eat with my grilled chicken salad. Perfect compliment of flavor and texture.  See below for a list of ingredients:

LENTIL FLOUR, CORN FLOUR, POTATO STARCH, VEGETABLE OIL (OLIVE OIL
AND/OR SUNFLOWER OIL AND/OR PALM FRUIT OIL), MILK PROTEIN, SUGAR, MILK CREAM, SEA SALT, ROSEMARY, LEAVENING.

    Kimberly, I saw these in the store yesterday and they looked so yummy. I gave them a pass because of the corn. We just found out my son has celiac disease. I’ve been doing a lot of reading, and I’ve come across articles that suggest rice and corn are also a problem. What are your thoughtcs on this? I’m beginning to wonder if any grains are safe!

    • Hi!

      I haven’t had any issues with corn, though I know that some people do. If your son doesn’t seem to have an issue, I would not worry about it at this point, getting rid of gluten is hard enough. However, if he is having issues, perhaps an elimination diet is the way to go, slowly reintroducing the foods that you removed (excluding gluten, of course).
