|Have you ever wondered what’s in those big round packages with unfamiliar brand names?
The next time you need munchies to go with cocktails or beer, try Scandinavian crispbread. It’s tasty, relatively low calorie and whole grain.
In large rounds (about 11 inches in diameter), it makes an impression on a platter.
Made only with whole grain rye flour, yeast, water, and salt, the product is all-natural, vegan and fat-free. Plus, large round crispbreads are fun. Snap off any size piece and nibble with cheese, olives or spreads.
Crispbreads are also a treat when served with soups or salads, and can be served for breakfast or snacks with jam. You can find Swedish crispbread from Siljans and Leksands in specialty food stores or on Amazon.

|Also look for Sardinian crispbread (called pane carasau or music paper bread). It’s flaky (and much softer than the hard Swedish style) so it generates more crumbs, but is equally as much fun. Drizzle Sardinian crispbread with extra-virgin olive oil. This may have been a shepherd’s lunch, but your guests will feel like they’re getting the royal treatment.
