Hi all you Einkorn lovers!
I have a new recipe for you. When I worked at Quiznos my favorite thing to eat was the flatbread topped with chipotle mayo, turkey, red onion, tomatoes and lettuce.This is a perfect recipe for those of us that need to make lunches for our husbands or ourselves and don’t want to use bread or have run out of bread! Flatbreads are a very versatile little bread. You can make sandwiches, little pizzas for the kids, or even top them with a herbed oil to serve with spaghetti! Today I will share with you my recipe for making flatbread using Einkorn flour.
Easy Einkorn Flatbread
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Inactive time : 10 minutes
Cooking time: 1-3 minutes per flatbread
1 1/3 cups Einkorn flour (if using normal flour use 1 1/4 cups)
1 teaspoon yeast dry active
1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
1/2 cup warm water 110° F
2 teaspoons olive oil
In the bowl of your kitchenaid mixer that has been fitted with the paddle attachment, put 1 1/3 cups of einkorn flour, 1 tsp active dry yeast, and 1/2 tsp salt. Turn your mixer to low to just blend the dry ingredients quickly. Add 1/2 cup of the 110° F water and the 2 tsp of olive oil. Mix on medium for about a minute until the dough comes together. On a well floured surface. The dough will be pretty sticky but do not add any more flour to it. Turn your dough out only about 4 times, enough that you can make a ball. Too much kneading and the dough will be too firm. Cover the dough with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes of resting cut the dough into 4 pieces. Gently form the pieces into little balls,sprinkle flour under and on top allowing the dough balls to absorb a little more flour the make them more like a pizza dough and less sticky. Knead the balls in your hand to toughen them up just a little. Roll them out about as wide as your hand. Like 6 inches. You want them to be a little thick since they are not tortillas they are flatbreads!
Heat an ungreased Cast Iron pan to about medium high. Place a flatbread on the pan and wait until some bubbles form on the top side. This will take about a minute. Turn the flatbread and cook for about another minute. There should be some brown circles here and there on the bread.
And that’s it! Flatbread made with healthy Einkorn in just a few minutes!!!
