Vegan garlic flatbreads

There are only a few things in the world we love more than curry. Do you know what is great with curry (apart from more curry?) our vegan garlic flatbreads of course! Unlike many bread recipes these flatbreads are super simple! Perfect for dipping, mopping and scooping at your hearts content!

This recipe uses easily sourced ingredients plus a new one for me – aquafaba. When I first saw this on ingredients lists I was baffled as to what on earth it was! It is in fact the starchy liquid from a can of chickpeas and is great at making things fluffy. So I incorporated it into this recipe to fluff up the flatbreads and it worked perfectly. (I don’t know who called it aquafaba but it’s not very informative if you ask me).

When it comes to seasoning these flatbreads I’m pretty relaxed with measurements and if you’re like me adopting the ‘throw it all together and hope for the best approach’, then this recipe is for you. When seasoning I used garlic, parsley, coriander and garnished with sesame seeds, however you can freestyle with whatever herbs or seeds you like, adding garlic to taste or omitting if you’re wanting to avoid garlic scented breath…

This recipe goes perfectly with our mushroom and spinach curry! Click here for the recipe.

Vegan Garlic Flatbread Recipe

Ingredients:
140g of plain flour
1 ½ tsp of baking powder
½ tsp of garlic granules
2 tsp of oil
2 ½ tbsp of almond milk (or any plant based milk)
3 tbsp of aquafaba (the starchy water from a tin of chickpeas)
½ – 1 tsp of lemon juice
A pinch of sugar
3 cloves of garlic chopped in to small pieces
3 tbsp of fresh or dried herbs (I used coriander and parsley but use whatever you fancy)

Optional butter topping:
A big knob of vegan butter (enough to brush on top of your flatbreads)
1 – 2 cloves of garlic
1 – 2 tbsp of fresh or dried herbs

Method:
1. Whisk all the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder and garlic granules until combined.
2. In a separate bowl mix the milk with the lemon juice, then add to the dry mixture.
3. Add the aquafaba (chickpea water), oil and sugar to the bowl, mix well.
4. Knead for 1 minute and the result should be a sticky dough-like mixture. Add flour or milk to achieve desired consistency.
5.Cover the bowl and set aside for 5 minutes.
6. Preheat pan to a low heat and add oil.
7. On a floured surface, roll out the mixture in to 3 parts.
8. Once rolled press in the chopped pieces of garlic and sprinkle with seeds and herbs.
9. Add the flatbreads to the pan and place a lid on top of the flatbreads (in order to do this the lid with need to be smaller than the pan).
10. Once slightly browned flip and cook on the other side.

Optional butter topping (but obligatory if you want full on tastiness):
11. In a pan on a low heat melt the butter then stir in then crushed garlic and herbs.
12. Once melted brush the mixture on the flatbreads before serving.
13. If serving later omit topping with the butter mixture. Instead top with the butter mixture then heat the flatbreads in the oven on a low heat for 7 minutes.

  • Great post! That looks so yummy. I love making breads so I will be trying this one out! I also read online you can use the water from a tin of chickpeas to make meringues! Who’d of thought?! x

    • Hey Emma 🙂 thanks for your feedback! They are really yummy and for me the added bonus is they’re very simple as far as bread recipes go. Sometimes I struggle to find the time for home made bread. Yes you can also use the water from chickpeas for meringues as well as things like moose or anything else that requires a bit of ‘fluffing up’! x x x

    • Yes indeed, I had no clue what it was for ages. I always saw it on ingredients lists and thought it was some peculiar vegan product. I have now discovered it has many uses! Have you tried the recipe? What do you think of it?
