Homemade Flatbread

Up until now I had always thought making your own bread was too time consuming when you had all the other components of a meal to worry about. I’ve been forever planning to spend a Sunday afternoon with the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the kitchen but I’ve never quite got round to it.

However, this week I managed to make flatbreads (I used Jamie Oliver’s recipe) to accompany my falafel disaster come falafel frittata! They were sooooo easy and they made the meal feel more than an ordinary weekday dinner; plus they only contain three ingredients.

Serves: 5/6


250g natural yoghurt

250g self-raising flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

Pinch of salt


1.Mix the flour, natural yoghurt, baking powder in a large mixing bowl until it forms a tacky dough.

2. Dust your work surface with flour and then knead until your dough is firm and well combined.

3. Divide the dough into 6 balls. Using a rolling pin roll them out to around 3/4 cm thick, making them as circular as possible.

4. Heat a medium size frying pan. Once the pan is hot, dry fry each of the flatbreads until they golden with some spots slightly darker than other areas. They need around 2-3 mins on each .

5. Once you’ve fried all of the flatbreads place them on a baking tray, brush with olive oil and cover with a sprinkle of chopped rosemary.
