Tapioca flour, white rice flour, and potato starch are lighter, starchier flours that produce a lighter, airier baked good, which is ideal for biscuits. They're also neutral tasting, which allows the flavor of the other ingredients to shine through.
These warm and garlicky biscuits are just right served with a steaming bowl of gluten-free New England clam chowder.

Sesame seeds have a long and established history; they were once highly valued for their oil in ancient times. The famous phrase "open sesame" from The Arabian Nights refers to the unique feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity. Serve these crackers with hummus, peanut butter, or slices of cheese.
Gluten-free crackers are not hard to find on the market, but they're often highly processed, rice- or cornstarch-based, not very nutritious, and expensive. These homemade crackers are teeming with nutrients. Made with high-protein quinoa flour, they are also full of zinc, omega-3s, vitamins, and minerals from pumpkin, flax, sunflower, and caraway seeds.
