EASY FLATBREAD RECIPE
I’m so excited about this recipe. As a bread lover (and someone from The Netherlands, a.k.a. bread country), I always find it hard to find good tasting and fresh bread while travelling.
Having lived abroad for almost 10 years, we’ve done our fair share of making our own bread when we couldn’t find nice bread in the shops. And by ‘we’, of course I mean Nick, let’s be honest here.
As everyone knows, making bread yourself isn’t that easy and usually involves a bread making machine and lots time sitting and waiting. Two things you probably don’t take with you when exploring new places.
But Jamie Oliver came up with a brilliant idea for making your own flat breads using just flour and yoghurt and we’ve adjusted the recipe to our liking.
They’re quick to make, you bake them in a pan and can eat it straight away.
What items do you need for this recipe?
Of course all items are optional, but we suggest using:
What do you need to make flat breads?
- 350 g self-raising flour (+ a bit of flour for dusting)
- 350 g yoghurt
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
What do you need for the garlic/herb butter?
- 2 cloves of garlic
- leaves of a bunch of fresh soft herbs (flat-leaf parsley, tarragon, basil and/or dill, whatever you can find)
- 40 g unsalted butter
How to make the camping flat breads?
- Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix (hands/mixer, just how brave do you feel today?) until you have a dough ( add a bit more when too wet)
- Dust your work surface and knead the dough to bring it together
- Divide the dough into 12 equal-sized balls
- Dust a rolling pin with flour (a glass will do fine as well, or just flatten with your hands, depending on how equipped you are on your trip) and roll the pieces of dough out into the size of a small plate (not too thin or thick)
- Use a knife to make a couple of vertical lines in the middle of the breads (leave space at the ends)
- Put a griddle pan on a high heat until hot, or heat up a BBQ
- Cook each flatbread for a couple of minutes per side, until slightly puffy and lightly charred
- The flat breads can be frozen/chilled and easily re-toasted in a pan or toaster
- Brush on olive oil & garlic mixture from above, or anything else you like.
