Is flatbread healthy to eat?
Sourdough flatbread can absolutely be part of a healthy diet. Just make sure you read your labels when buying from a store or even better – make your own flatbread at home so you have full control of what goes in your body!
What Is The Difference Between Pita Bread and Flatbread?
The two are very similar, but a leavening agent is used when making pita bread, making it rise and creating a “puffier” texture. A flatbread would be thin and of course, flat.
Healthier Sourdough Flatbread
- 2.5 cups stoneground flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ cup sourdough starter (can be sourdough discard)
- 1 tbsp honey
- ¼ cup greek yoghurt
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 5 tbsp warm water (add this little by little at the end)
- 4 tbsp melted butter (optional)
- Measure all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
- Use a wooden spoon to mix until everything start coming together.
- Now, use your hands to mix until it forms a soft, but not at all sticky ball of dough.
- Cover the bowl with a clean, damp kitchen towel, and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and dump the dough out of the ball.
- Roll, by hand, into a rough sausage shape, and cut into 8 even pieces.
- Heat up a pan to a medium high heat.
- Roll out each piece as thick or thin as you prefer, I like to roll each wrap while the previous cooks, and keep the damp towel draped over the remaining pieces.
- Carefully place the flatbread into the pan, at this point, if you prefer, you can brush the top side with melted butter.
- Once you see bubble forming, carefully flip the flatbread to the other side. It should be slightly golden. Brush the other side with melted butter (if preferred).
- Once both sides are cooked, transfer the flatbread to a plate and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel to keep warm.
Tips and Tricks:1. Don’t worry about getting a perfectly smooth dough, it can look rustic. 2. It goes quickest when you roll out the next flatbread while the previous cooks. 3. You can make these super thin to use as wraps, or smaller and thicker to use more like a pita. 4. I use an 8” pan, and normally roll the flatbreads out to that size. 5. Brushing the flatbread with melted butter is great when used as an accompaniment for curries, etc. You can also flavor the butter with garlic and herbs. When using this recipe for regular wraps, I don’t recommend brushing them with butter.
