A Little Unconventional

Not everyone is going to like this snack.  And even fewer are going to eat it for breakfast like I prefer to do.  But I figure I'd better share this because it's crazy simple and really good for you, too.

Kimchi and Tahini on Crackers

Take 1 very sturdy (that's code for break-your-teeth-hard) whole grain cracker, such as Dr. Kracker or Wasa.  Spread generously with tahini (that's sesame butter) and top with spicy kimchi (that's Korean-style fermented cabbage).  Enjoy.  Then make another because it's so damn good.

I love this snack/breakfast because:
1. It's crunchy, savory and creamy all in one.
2. Dr. Kracker flatbreads are from Texas, like me.
3. It's an excuse to eat kimchi for breakfast.
4. Slathering tahini on anything makes me think of the Seward Cafe.
5. The "Seedlander" variety of Dr. Kracker reminds me of Zoolander.
5. It's more exciting than toast.  And I LOVE toast.

Um... I do this too. I don't think it's strange at all (and I'm sticking to that story).

I'm not a fan of kimchi, but I bet I'd enjoy other stuff atop a Dr. Kracker! (I have a couple packed for snack this afternoon, in fact!)

Oh, this sounds great! Tahini is delicious with anything, but especially good with a crunch and toning down spiciness. Nice idea.

This is fantastic and you are a lifesaver! We've been doing a Pantry challenge this month ( and with 3 days to go we are out of everything I like to snack on. I still have kimchi and tahini so I made it with sourdough bread cut thin and toasted- so good!

I will have to try this... I've already found that kimchi by itself is delicious on a Dr. Kracker, and I'm sure the addition of tahini will only make it better!

I love kimchi but generally only use my tahini for making hummus. It's a little gross on it's own but my intense love for kimchi is overtaking any resistance to try this out. Thanks for sharing!

After thinking about this all afternoon & evening, I just had to give it a try, albeit on some Trader Joe's flatbread. I don't know if I was too skimpy with the tahini or if the combination cancelled out the bitter tahini flavor I was expecting. Whatever - it was good and I'll be going back for more!

Kimchi on crackers are the best!
