Easy Flat Bread Recipe

Easy Flat Bread Recipe - only 2 ingredients

If you look at most of the recipes on my blog, they are all really (and I mean really) easy.  I’m not saying this is the best or most perfect way to make flat bread, but it’s the way I whip it up, it’s delicious and I use it to accompany curries and soups. Plus the leftovers go beautifully in the lunch box. This recipe works as a pizza base too.

Ingredients

2 Cups SR Flour (300 grams)

1 Cup Greek Yoghurt (280 grams)

Olive Oil (approx 1/4 cup)

Salt

Dough Method – Thermomix

1.  Weigh out yoghurt and flour into bowl.

2. Slowly turn to speed 6 for 10 seconds until dough is formed. 

3. Lock lid and set timer to 1.5 minutes, kneed option.

4. Remove dough from the Thermomix bowl and place on to a well floured board or Thermomix mat.

5. Kneed into a ball. If the dough is sticky, add extra flour when kneading until you have a nice firm ball.

Dough Method – Regular

1. Place yoghurt & 1 cup of SR flour into a large mixing bowl. 

2. Mix until combined (use your hands when the mixture is too thick to stir).

3. Add the rest of the flour, a little bit at a time, until you have formed a dough ball. Add a little extra flour the dough is too sticky.

4. Knead for about 5 minutes on a floured board or bench.

Cooking

1. Preheat oven to 200-210°C.

2. Cut dough in half, and then section into even pieces (depending on how big you want the bread to be).  I cut each half section into 4, so 8 portions all up.

3. On a floured board or clean bench, roll out each portion in an oval shape. Roll each piece thinly (as thin as possible; less than half a cm works best).  I don’t stress about the shape here.  As you can see at the picture below, they are all pretty rough. I’m going with rustic here!

4. Lay bread on a tray lined with baking paper and drizzle with a generous amount of oil.  I just wing it, but to be more precise, I would use approximately 1 tablespoon of oil for each portion.

5. Season with salt (optional)

6. Cook in a hot 200-210°C oven for approximately 15-20 minutes until golden.

Note

The bread can also be cooked in the frypan (instead of the oven). Just shallow fry the bread until they are golden on each sides.

2 cups chopped onions 2 cups chopped carrots 4 cloves garlic, minced 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper 6 cups vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth 2 cups water 3 cups chopped cauliflower 1 3/4 cups lentils 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes 2 tablespoons tomato paste 4 cups chopped fresh spinach or one 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Thickness

I’ve tried rolling the bread slightly thicker (1/2 – 1 cm) and thinly (as thin as possible – under 1/2 cm). Both work but we like the thinner version best.

Serve

Delicious with soup! I cut up the bread into strips and served it with this Slow Cooker Lentil Soup.

I also use flat bread as lunch for myself with avocado, tomato and freshly cracked pepper. So delicious and a nice alternative to a sandwich.

    Hi

    Could you use coconut flour or gluten free flour? And if so, would it be the same amount of flour, any extra liquid etc?

    Thanks!
