I'm always searching for good breakfast solutions. You can never have too many as far as I'm concerned. My current obsession is making these flatbreads and eating them with kale that grows wild all over our garden, which I sauté in olive oil. Add some nuts and (vegan) cheese for protein, a squeeze of lemon juice for good measure and you're away laughing. I swear it takes equal amount of time to make a smoothie! There's something incredibly satisfying about eating greens for breakfast.
1/2 tsp active yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1 cup gluten free flour mix
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup buckwheat or teff flour
1 tbsp psyllium husks
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil (plus more for cooking)
Dissolve the sugar in the warm water, and sprinkle yeast over. Leave for about 5 minutes until the yeast starts to froth up. Once this happens, add the almond milk, lemon juice and olive oil.
Stir together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. I find it's better to use a glass or ceramic bowl because it keeps the dough warmer during the rising.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until all of the lumps are gone. You don't need to knead gluten free dough because gluten is a protein that needs to be activated and softened, but we're not working with gluten here! Once the mixture is completely combined, set the dough to rest and rise somewhere warm for about 2 hours.
Once it's risen, you're ready to cook! Heat up a heavy-based frying pan to a medium-high heat, with a little olive oil. Spoon about 2 large tablespoons of the dough onto the hot frying pan, and gently spread out. This is a slightly ungainly process, but it is possible. I use a combination of my fingers and the back of the spoon, but you might like to try a knife. Cook the bread for about 2 minutes or until the bread is well browned, and then flip and do the same on the other side.
Repeat the process for the rest of the mixture and serve warm. I keep these breads in the freezer for up to a month, reheating them in the toaster.
