Quick & Easy Flatbread
- 500g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for dusting
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 500g natural yoghurt
- You can make the dough in a food processor but you could do it by hand also
- Put all of the flatbread ingredients into your food processor and pulse until you have a dough
- If the dough’s a little wet still, you may need to add another sprinkling of flour
- Dust a rolling pin with flour then roll the pieces of dough out into side-plate-sized rounds
- Stack them between small sheets of greaseproof paper next to the hob ready to cook
- Put a griddle pan on a high heat to get nice and hot
- Once it’s really hot, cook each flatbread for a couple of minutes per side, until slightly puffy and lightly charred – you’ll need to do this in batches
- Serve as they are as a side or with something lovely for dunking like home-made pesto, Garlic Infused Rapeseed Oil or guacamole. You can freeze any leftover flatbreads, simply defrost thoroughly and warm through in the oven wrapped in foil or lightly re-toast them in a pan before tucking in
