Not Just Appetizer Pickles: How To Cook With Capers And Capers, A Food That Is An Explosion Of Flavor

We have some pasta recipes and crackers salty which, being very energetic, are nutritious and perfect for recharging energies as a snack -within a balanced consumption-, although the selection that we bring today is more intended to share at home at aperitif time.

We can use them as base of canapés, skewers or mini tapas, and also for dipping in homemade creams, sauces and dips, from any hummus to elaborations such as the htipiti of peppers and feta cheese by José Andrés. Most of us can customize them to taste, with nuts, seeds or spices, and there is also an option for dentures that appreciate a not so crunchy texture, with an addictive cheese flavor.

Oatcakes or oatmeal crackers

Oatcakes

Preheat the oven to 200ºC with heat up and down, and prepare one or two trays with parchment paper. Melt the butter in a small skillet or in the microwave to make 15 ml.

In a bowl, mix the oat flakes with the salt, the optional baking soda, the seeds, and the butter. Put the water to heat in a saucepan and bring to a boil, putting out the fire. Pour 100 ml of that water, combining well.

Most likely, we will need to add the rest of the water, but it is better to do it little by little. There should be one moist, pliable, non-sticky dough, cohesive and detaches from the walls of the container. If it is very dry, heat a little more water and add small amounts. Knead in the bowl or on the table.

Put on a sheet of baking paper or silicone and spread with the roller, leaving it as fine as possible. If it sticks, use another sheet of paper on top. Cut round cookies. Distribute them on the trays, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until they look lightly golden and firm. Let cool on a rack.
