Flaxseed Crackers

What About The Low-Carb Crackers?

Apart from the fact that it looks impressive, it is unbelievably easy to pull together. Unless you want to make your own flaxseed crackers (which is embarrassingly easy too), you won’t be cooking a thing.

Head off to your local grocery store and pick up everything you need. Stack your antipasto platter full of low-carb goodies so you can stay on track and enjoy the party.

 

Look out for flaxseed crackers (try Flackers) or make your own with this fantastic recipe from corinanielsen.com. I’ve made a few flaxseed cracker recipes and this one is the best so far. They taste great and the texture is crispy and crunchy like a REAL cracker should be.

 

Or keep an eye out for other low-carb crackers like these Organic Primal Thin Crackers (Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free) which are made from dairy (parmesan).

Top Tips For Creating An Instagramable Antipasto Platter

  • The trick to making an antipasto platter look stunning is abundance.
  • It should look like it is overflowing with a variety of delicious and colorful foods. The first step is to have plenty of food – you don’t want too much of the board or platter showing through.
  • Arrange everything for contrast, so that the cheeses, for example, are scattered around the platter not all in one area.
  • Use little bowls for berries and nuts if you like, to create unique areas.
  • Introduce a little bit of chaos by scattering a few nuts or berries on the board too. Your platter should be a feast for the eyes as well as your taste-buds.
  • An antipasto platter makes a spectacular centerpiece for a summer party but it can also work well for winter parties too. The rich colors of the vegetables and the meat give it a sumptuous, festive appearance, so it can be a welcome addition on cold nights and for holiday entertaining.
  • And you don’t need a fancy serving board – I got mine from IKEA.

7 Easy Steps To The Perfect Low-Carb Antipasto Platter For Your Next Party

 Arrange 2 or 3 from each category on your platter or board

  1. Cold cured meats: e.g. prosciutto, ham, salami, pepperoni
  2. Hard and soft cheeses: e.g. feta, Brie, Camembert, goats cheese, blue cheese, mini mozzarella balls (bocconcini), cheddar, provolone
  3. Nuts: e.g. almonds, macadamias, pistachios, walnuts
  4. Olives and bite size marinated low-carb vegetables: e.g. stuffed peppers, artichokes and mushrooms. I have used baby piquant peppers stuffed with feta here.
  5. Fruit: e.g. berries such as strawberries or blueberries
  6. Vegetable sticks: e.g. cucumber, peppers and celery (optional but good for the kids)
  7. Low-carb crackers: e.g. flaxseed crackers (Flackers), Organic Primal Thin Crackers or make your own with my favorite recipe.

    • I don’t have a background in catering but this is a helpful post to decide how much cheese to use: https://www.foodwine.com/food/egg/egg1296/buychees.html
      I’d work out the cheese per person first and then think about what other ingredients you are going to use. A typical board could be half cheese, cold meats & crackers. The other half in terms of quantities, is the antipasto (olives etc), nuts and berries. Mix it up as it shouldn’t be too precise!
