You won’t be able to resist going back for seconds and thirds with this European flatbread recipe. You don’t need to worry about your waistline though. It is a super healthy alternative to your standard slice of bread. Better yet, it’s a healthy recipe that actually tastes scrumptious. It’s highly addictive.
This amazing flatbread recipe has made it onto my weekly dinner list. My lunch list too actually, as it goes with everything…feta cheese crumbled on top, lashings of guacamole (my fave), tuna…you get the idea. Inspired by my upcoming trip to southern Italy and I think a lusting to explore the Greek islands, I have taken to mixing olives, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil and rosemary into my little slithers of goodness. However, don’t be swayed by my travels – have a play around with the recipe and see what combos your hungry belly and wonderlust can create.
Recipe: Flatbread (makes 12)
♥ 500g of self-raising flour
♥ 500g of fat free yoghurt
♥ 1 tablespoon of coarse sea-salt
♥ 1 tablespoon of baking powder
♥ 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary
♥ Pitted olives (as many as you want)
♥ Sun-dried tomatoes (as many as you want)
♥ Mix all of the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
♥ Add the yoghurt to the bowl and mix until it forms a dough. If the dough is too wet, just add more a little bit more flour.
♥ Chop the olives and sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces or slithers. Then add them to the mixture. and knead into the dough for no longer than five minutes.
♥ Sprinkle a fine dust of flour onto your worktop, then one by one, roll each chunk to a flat, thin circle, square – whatever shape you like. They should be no more than 0.5cm tall.
♥ Layer each shape in between grease proof paper, on a small side plate.
Like I said, they go with pretty much everything. Pile them high with your favourite toppings, or cut them up into fingers and dip into pots of hummus and tzatziki.
See, it’s so cheap and easy to make! It will keep for a day or two if you keep it wrapped in foil, so make a batch up for dinner and then if you can resist, keep some for lunch the next day. I wonder if you’ll be able to wait until 1pm though – by 11am I had to give in and have a flatbread fix! X
