From the book
|1 tbsp||tamari or tomato purée|
|1 tsp||dried herbs, I like a mix, or 1 tbsp fresh, or za’atar mix|
|1 tsp||fennel seeds, ground cumin, smoked paprika or freshly chopped garlic|
|sea salt and black pepper|
Preheat the oven to fan 180°C/gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with reusable baking paper.
Mix all the seeds, the tamari or tomato purée and 180ml water in a bowl and leave for 15 minutes for the seeds to absorb some of the liquid.
Add the dried herbs, spices, salt and pepper to the mix, transfer to the tray and press down with the back of a spoon into an even layer, as thin as possible without breaking the ‘dough’.
Take off the top layer of paper, then pop into the oven and bake for about 25–30 minutes until just golden. Only if it needs it, turn over and bake the other side for another 10 minutes. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack, where it will crisp further as it cools, then roughly break up into rustic pieces.
