Herb Crust

Herb Crust

replace breadcrumbs or plain panko with herb crust
Easy | 30 MIN | 1 ¼ Cups

Since I had an unsuccessful search for organic, gluten-free panko I decided to make my own. No, not from scratch (I have no idea how to do that nor do I want to know!) Crushed up organic crispy brown rice cereal works perfectly well. We use it as the base for our Herb Crust and Pecan Crust. There are a few companies that make crispy brown rice cereal. Our favorite is the one made by One Degree.

I am also able to control the sodium level when I make my own, which helps for those following a low-sodium diet.

We use this to replace breadcrumbs or plain panko in any recipe we might find online.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup either Gluten-Free One Degree Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps, pre-crushed in a food processor by pulsing or if you’re not gluten-free use organic panko.
  • ¼ cup Frontier brand Herbs de Provence or Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon garlic granules or powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder or granules
  • Sea salt to taste (approximately ½ teaspoon) *
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

* If you are following a low-sodium diet leave out the salt

Directions

Want to make more to have on hand?

We often just grind up a whole box of brown rice cereal to have enough to keep on hand. One box yields about 3 cups crushed.
