Flatbread is so versatile. It is wonderful for wrapping up your favorite veggie medley or for scooping mouthfuls of curry or stew. It can be made into a homemade pizza base and torn into bits for shoveling hummus and other dips.
They can be made with all kinds of different flour and flavored with herbs and spices. Flatbread is common all over the world, and many different countries and cultures, from India to Ethiopia, have their version.
Sure, you can buy a bag of flatbread at the supermarket, but there is nothing quite like serving up a batch that you have made yourself. They are quite simple to make and often require minimal ingredients.
Take a look at these OGP recipes, and get yourself ready for your next homemade feast.
