Flatbreads

  • Add the yeast and sugar to the water and leave to sit for 20 minutes until foamy
  • Place the flour and salt in a bowl and add the foamy yeast water and oil. Mix until combined.
  • Knead the dough until it becomes stretchy and elastic and begins to form a skin.
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover and leave somewhere warm for about an hour until it has doubled in size.
  • Knock the dough back to remove the air on a floured surface.
  • Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a ball and then roll out until it's as thin as you can get it.
  • Heat a skillet or fry pan and brush with a little vegetable oil.
  • Wait until hot and place the flatbreads in one at a time. Leave for about 30 seconds to a minute and turn over, it should puff up.
  • Cook for another 1-2 minutes and turn back over again. It should leave golden brown spots on each side.
  • Dry toast the herbs with the flaky salt and chilli flakes until aromatic.
  • Melt the butter or warm the olive oil slightly and add the toasted herbs, salt and chilli.
  • Mix it together and brush over one side of the flatbreads. Best served warm but can be eaten cool.

Hummus

  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  • Place all the ingredients except the chilli flakes into a food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  • Place in a bowl to serve and sprinkle over the chilli flakes to decorate, you can add more and mix through if you like it spicy.
