I first encountered this flatbread recipe on the beautiful site of Golubka. I made them, per recipe for Callum’s birthday and they went down real good. However, the original recipe called for a mix of Buckwheat flour and Rice flour. I have a very good friend back home who avoids both wheat and rice, therefore i wanted to create a flatbread recipe that she would be a- okay enjoying. This ones for you Lucy…

The only thing i would change about this recipe is that i did not roll/ press the flatbreads out enough before they went in the fridge- they were still delicious its just that they were a bit on the thick side of flatbreadness.

Now, i’m not going to do a right up of the salad that accompanied our flatbreads. For a mixture of reasons- one, to say i got a little carried away would be a huge understatement. Two, there are far too many ingredients to make it viable for most households (in my defence, i was using up a lot of things that needed eating). Three, it was pretty much a case of throw everything onto a (very large) platter. Anyway, i will say that it was a true multi-taste, texture, colour spectacular, that i ate with my hands- in order to fully appreciate each mouthful, each beautiful taste. Theres a name for these kinds of salads (i didn’t make it up)- An Everything Salad. Maybe if you have a surplus of salad vegetables, fruits, legumes to hand you can do the same. Its a feast if ever there was one.
