Mama Pea has come up with an all-natural way to enjoy those tangy ranch flavors with this recipe for Ranch Oyster Crackers. Thank you, Mama Pea.
In a happy side note, I developed a ranch dressing for a dairy-free/egg-free client yesterday using this same spice mix. I combined it with some Vegenaise, soy yogurt and red wine vinegar and voila - a ranch you can feel good about.
Ranch Oyster Crackers - by Mama Pea (my notes in parentheses)
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. dry dill
2 t. dried parsley
1 t. dried chives (my addition)
1 t. kosher salt
3 T. canola oil
One 8-ounce package of oyster crackers
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry seasonings and mix well.
Add oil and stir to combine.
Pour the oyster crackers into the bowl and toss with a spatula to coat.
(at this point I started to taste them, and they were good even before cooking - always a good sign)
Transfer the crackers to a baking sheet (lined with parchment if you hate washing dishes like I do).
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
