  • 1 cup almond flour (ground, / cracklings / chicharrones, 100 g / 3.5 oz - you can make your own)
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (ground, / cracklings / chicharrones, 100 g / 3.5 oz - you can make your own)
  • 2 large eggs (ground, / cracklings / chicharrones, 100 g / 3.5 oz - you can make your own)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (ground, / cracklings / chicharrones, 100 g / 3.5 oz - you can make your own)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (ground, / cracklings / chicharrones, 100 g / 3.5 oz - you can make your own)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F.
  • Place the pork rinds into a blender.
  • I'm using my Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment.
  • I used home-made pork rinds from pork skin I get from my local farmer.
  • When I don't have any left, I sometimes get pork rinds from here (no affiliation).
  • These must be the only pork rinds made with pure pork skins (no additives) here in the UK.
  • Pulse the pork rinds until powdered.
  • If there are any hard skin bits left, remove them before mixing with the other ingredients.
  • Place the powdered pork rinds into a mixing bowl together with the almond flour and flaxmeal.
  • Add salt (if needed) and mix until well combined.
  • Crack in the eggs and process until well combined using your hands or a dough mixer.
  • Separate the dough into 8 pieces and press into 8 mini tart pans like these or a regular tart pan.
  • Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down.
  • You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • When done, remove from the oven and fill with your favourite filling (meat, eggs, cheese, mushrooms, broccoli, asparagus, etc.) and place back in the oven.
  • If not using straight away, let the pie crust cool down.
  • Once chilled, store in an airtight container.
