|Homemade cream cheese sandwich on yeast free flat bread|
I either cut these up into squares (or triangles) to use for sandwiches or into rectangles which I use to make wraps, like in place of hot dog buns... The recipe is pretty flexible- I tend to not even measure the last 4 ingredients exactly at all- just throw it all together, and it works perfectly.
This makes 2 smaller trays of flat bread or 1 big and thicker one.
You can also make these into smaller circular shaped flat breads, as alternative to pitas. When I do that, I spread them with a light brushing of olive oil, and then spread them with zaatar spice mix before baking. This also works as a crust for pizza- just bake it first, then add the sauce and toppings.
1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup millet flour
2 cups potato starch
5 teaspoons baking powder or 4 tablespoons yeast
1 1/2-2 tablespoons xanthan gum
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups of warm water
1-2 tablespoons sweetener- either honey, agave nectar, date syrup, maple syrup, coconut sugar, white sugar, whatever
1 1/2-2 tablespoons oil- I generally use olive oil, but not always. It really doesn't matter which you use.
1 1/2-2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice- any type of vinegar is fine, but I haven't tried with wine vinegar
Toppings, if desired, like sesame seeds, poppy seeds, nigella seeds, garlic powder, etc...
1. Mix all the dry ingredients together until uniform.
2. Add the liquid ingredients. Mix well. You'll have a sticky and wet, but not runny, dough.
3. Spread on lined oven trays. Either make 2 big ones that are thinner, or spread more thickly on one tray, or a few smaller pita sized ones.
4. Add toppings if desired, then bake at 400 until browned and it peels off the baking paper easily. This should take 15-20 minutes or so, but my oven is being weird so it could be that yours will take a little longer or shorter to cook.
5. Cut into portions and serve.
P.S. I am sure this recipe would work with wheat or spelt flour- just use 4 cups of other flour (and no xanthan gum) for this recipe. Who wants to try it out and get back to me and tell me if it works? Pretty please?
