Yesterday, I started soaking black beans to make for dinner tonight. My original plan was to make a Mexican inspired dish. I ended up making taco style pasta last night however so I wanted to change it up. I tossed some black olives in garlic and butter, made quinoa seasoned with herbs and lemon and cooked my beans in smoked paprika, turmeric and other spices. Then I made flatbread! I originally was thinking of making some sort of wrap but honestly I suck at shaping these things. So I used them to dip into my food instead. So good! Much easier for my toddler to join in and eat as well this way.
You will need:
*4 cups unbleached flour
*1 1/2 cups milk
*1 stick of butter (I used salted)
*1 tsp salt
*oil for cooking
Warm milk. I used the same pan I melted the butter in. You can use room temperature but this was quicker and I didn’t have milk sitting out. I actually used heavy cream as we usually don’t have animal milk at home. We had this around for our Droste cocoa.
Mix the milk and butter together.
Flatten out into as much of a circle as you can with a rolling pin. I am THE WORST at this! I make delicious food. It’s just usually not very pretty. The thinner you flatten it the more flexible it becomes. Don’t be afraid to thin it out. It will thicken slightly when cooked.
Fry on medium low for around a minute on each side. It will bubble when ready. I tried using a spray oil at first and it got absorbed too quickly. So I switched to pouring a good deal in. So much better!
