Rustic Saltine Crackers



    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 1/4 cup ice cold water
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • Coarse black salt
    • Coarse pink salt
    • Coarse sea salt


    1. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and baking powder in a food processor and pulse a few times to mix.
    2. Pour in coconut oil and pulse a few times again until the crumbs are smaller. Slowly add the ice water one tablespoon at a time and pulse until the crumbs form a dough (You might not use all the water, and the dough should still be a bit crumbly).
    3. Remove dough from the food processor, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
    4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin and roll the dough out till it’s as think as you can get it. You can divide the chilled dough in half and work with 1 piece at a time to make it easier. The edges may tear or crumble a bit, but that’s part of the rustic character of this cracker.
    5. Tear small cracker-sized pieces of dough off and lay them out flat on a parchment paper lined baking sheet lined with parchment paper (You can also cut the dough with a knife or make shapes with a cookie cutter.).
    6. Brush each cracker lightly with egg and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Nirmala Narine is the host of Nirmala's Spice World, a culinary adventure that takes the viewer into a world of exotic spices from around the globe. Nirmala was born in Guyana, South America to parents of Indian descent. Nirmala’s grandfather, an Arya Samaj Hindu Pandit, began teaching her yoga when she was just two years old and entrusted to her ancient Ayurvedic spice recipes, techniques, and treatments to heal the body from within. These simple lifestyle practices were further enriched by her endless discoveries on her many extensive travels around the globe. Nirmala has visited more than 137 countries and counting. At the age of 6, she began to cook in a tiny kitchen with no running water or electricity. When she was 11, her family immigrated to New York City. Today, Nirmala is a sought-after speaker, author, consultant and expert on global food, culture, flavor, fragrance and lifestyle trends. Nirmala has been featured in the NY Times, on CNN, and as the Country Living “Woman Entrepreneur of the Year,” and she is also a frequent guest on The Martha Stewart Show, the CBS Early Show, and the Today Show. When she is not working, she shares her love of Vastu Shastra, farming, and ancient civilization at the American Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian, and several public schools and orphanages in both hemispheres.
