I live near Varese and work in a very lively area of Milan. It is amazing how in both cities are increasing the areas, shops or pet friendly rooms; Many people go out with their dog even in the evening, especially for happy hour: Walk in the center and then relax in front of a prosecco, potato chips and mini treats of all kinds. What about the dog? He can’t taste olives or fries… I have the solution, with my carrot crackers!
Very similar to the thin crackers that we eat, rectangular and with a lot of characteristic holes on the surface. Without yeast and with a rather long cooking, they come out fragrant and crisp from the oven and their color is of a bright orange for the massive presence of the carrot. If you close them in an airtight bag and you carry them in your pocket during your six-legged exits, you will make your dog happy. You will make a fabulous aperitif together, sure that you have chosen a healthy and very simple delicacy.
The carrot crackers are so good that you can taste them too, as well as the tasty cheese Biscuits: trust me and let me know!
Carrot Crackers: Ingredients for about 250 gr of crackers
- Carrots Bio 100 g
- Greek Yogurt 0% or 2% 55 g
- Soy milk at Natural 50 g
- Flour 00 200 g + to taste For the work plan *
Wash well and dry the carrots, without peeling, grate finely in a bowl with a grater with small holes. Now add the yogurt and soy milk, then stir for a few minutes so that the ingredients absorb the flavor of the carrot well.
Little at a time and setacciandola, knead with flour until you get a nice compact dough. It is not necessary for this to rest and you can spread it immediately to a thickness of 3 mm and to form a rectangle.
With a knife or a wheel cut the dough divide it into portions of the size you prefer. With the prongs of a fork bucherella the surface in a uniform and regular way, then place each portion on a dripping pan lined with parchment paper. Cook the crackers to the carrot!
* I do not recommend it, but if you use packed minced carrots could be enough 120 g of flour because they are much less moist than fresh carrots.
Cook the crackers in a pre-heated static oven at 150-160 °, for 40-45 minutes or less depending on the degree of crispness you want and the humidity of your dough. In this case you can also use the oven in ventilated mode: 130-140 ° for 30-35 minutes.
You can store crackers to carrots for a week or more, in an airtight container or in a tin box, in a dry environment. The refrigerator is not suitable, because humid. Crackers have a tendency to lose crispness. Not a problem for the flavor but if you want to make them crisp again I suggest you put them back in the oven for about 15 minutes. You can freeze the dough, then spread it if necessary.
- The dogs are happy if they are found for the mouth fresh and crisp goodness: the carrots are perfect, rich in vitamins, carotene and irresistible flavor.
- Light and balanced, they are dry enough to be prepared in large quantities: a recipe that is comfortable for you!
