Cooks Tips

To make your own flatbread…

1. Mix together 200g of plain flour, 1 tbsp olive oil, 100ml water and a pinch of salt and knead the dough until smooth. Divide into 4 balls and roll into ovals, 3mm thick.

2. Heat a cast iron frying pan or griddle pan, cook flatbreads, one at a time, for about 1-2 minutes on each side until a deep golden colour. Brush with a little more olive oil and sprinkle with flaked salt.
