Gluten Free Canape Crispbreads


Sometimes lunches are just a bit boring. When you’re rushing around and want something quick, a sandwich seems like the best thing to turn to. Even before I was gluten free, I never really found a sandwich particularly satisfying. Instead they just turned flat and soggy in the bottom of my bag.

On more and more occasions, I now bring ingredients into the office to prepare something fresh. With fridge storage at work and mini supermarkets around the corner is easier and far cheaper than buying lunch out. But let’s face it. It has to be good to resist temptation, and a soggy sandwich never quite cuts it.

The lovely guys at Free-Go, an online Gluten Free supermarket let me pick some products to try, and one of the first things on my mind was to improve lunches. That was when I came across Free’d.

Now I tell you, these are no ordinary gluten free crackers. Forget dry. Forget boring. Forget getting stuck to the roof of your mouth when you chew them. These crackers are the bees knees. And some they needed an extra special bit of loving.

Popping to Lidl in prep, I picked up some basics I thought would go along nicely and spice up the standard cracker. As you can see, I haven’t bought a lot of ingredients, just re-used them in different ways.

Let me introduce you to three lovely little canape crispbreads:

 Canape 1: Cherry Tomatoes with garlic & chive

1/2 Free’d Chia & Sesame Seed Crispbread
Garlic and herb dip
2 cherry tomatoes, sliced
Fresh chives
Black pepper

  1. Start with a layer of garlic & herb dip. This was a bargain from Lidl and is great as a base layer.
  2. Cut your tomatoes in half and place on top.
  3. Finish with fresh chives and black pepper.

Canape 2: Avocado & fresh water prawns

1/2 Free’d Chia & Sesame Seed Crispbread
1/4 avocado, smashed
1 tsp lemon juice
Fresh water prawns
Black pepper

  1. Take a quarter of a ripe avocado and smash down. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and continue to smash.
  2. Spread across the crispbread and arrange your fresh water prawns.
  3. Finish with a sprinkling of black pepper.

Canape 3: Avocado & Basil

1/2 Free’d Chia & Sesame Seed Crispbread
Garlic and herb dip
1/2 avocado, sliced
Fresh basil
Black pepper

  1. Again start with your trusty garlic and herb dip.
  2. Take half an avocado and slice into long pieces.
  3. Position on top with fresh basil leaves and black pepper.
