Quick gluten free Flat breads

flatbreads

I’ve been experimenting with these for a while, using different combinations of gluten free flour. I have also been experimenting with some shop bought gluten free self raising flour. I’m not that keen on the texture that comes from the potato flour in gluten free flour blends and have tended to avoid them. In these flatbreads however, it adds softness without being cloying. I also added some some chickpea (gram) flour (which is why they look slightly yellow) and some buckwheat flour.

They are not dairy free because I used yoghurt for the fat element, but I’m going to try them with oil and see what the difference is.

They are quick to make too, which is why I am experimenting for the perfect recipe. It would be one I use often, to go with soup, hummus, fish pate or spicy minced meat and salad.

Anyway, I will continue my pursuit of the perfect gluten free flat bread.

I flavored these with garlic and basil and a herby butter. They are soft and made a tasty accompaniment to the pesto chicken and roasted vegetables we had for dinner.
