No bread, no worries!

Sometimes despite baking most days, things can run out. When it is the bread that runs out one must think what else can be made rather speedily and that whatever it is we come up with will be a hit at the dinner table filling those empty hungry tummies. Don't worry if there is not even a crust in sight, it is not the end of the world.  These little flatbread beauties are quick and easy to knock up and so versatile.

Ready to Serve

Mix two cups of wholemeal flour with a scant 1/2 tsp baking powder and a slug of olive oil. Mix this with milk or kefir or water to create a dough. Break off large walnut size pieces and roll out thin on a floured side. Pat off any excess flour. Cook in a pan on medium heat, no oil is needed, they dry cook wonderfully. As soon as they brown on one side turn them over and cook the other side. They really do take minutes but these little breads can be served with so many different things. Homemade hummus goes a treat, and so does just plain old butter! Now, who needs bread?  :)
