In this video we’ll show you how to make perfectly soft, vegan and gluten-free flatbread. This flatbread comes together with only 5 ingredients in about 30 minutes.
1 1/3 cups unsweetened plain vegan yogurt
8 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups + 1 1/2 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-free Baking Flour + more as needed
Garlic olive oil
Fresh parsley, finely chopped (or herbs of choice)
In a large bowl, mix together the vegan yogurt, olive oil, baking powder and salt until uniform.
Sprinkle the gluten-free flour over the wet mixture and mix it through until a dough forms. The goal here is to have a smooth and soft dough that does not crumble and that is not too sticky. If the dough is too sticky, add additional flour, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, as needed. If the dough is too dry, add water, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, as needed.
Flour a clean work surface and preheat a greased pan over medium heat. We prefer to use a cast iron griddle or skillet for this as we have found it yields the best results vs. a non-stick pan. We also prefer to use our granite counters, a marble board or plastic cutting boards instead of a wooden one as we have found that it sticks less.
Divide the dough into 8 and roll each into a ball. Place 1 ball on the floured work surface and using a rolling pin or an empty bottle, roll out the dough until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Transfer the dough onto the heated pan and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes on each, or until browned and cooked through. Check the dough after 1 1/2 minutes to ensure that it is not burning. If it cooks too fast, lower your heat as needed. We often find that our first flatbread becomes the test for proper heat level/cooking time and the remaining flatbreads cook more efficiently and successfully.
Transfer the cooked flatbread to a plate. If desired, brush it with the optional garlic olive oil and give it a generous sprinkle of parsley.
Continue until you have cooked all of the dough. Serve warm. Store in an airtight container on the counter for 4-6 days.
