Every great chef always has a few versatile recipes in his back pocket. These are recipes that can be adapted to suit any season or holiday. Our lightly toasted vegetable flatbread is a great example of one of these recipes! Not only is it super easy to prepare, but it can also be modified to suit almost any craving or diet. It can be made meat-heavy for the carnivores in the family, or it can be made vegetarian by using vegetable toppings and creamy cheese. It’s also super easy to make with all vegan and plant-based ingredients!
Our 3-ingredient flatbread is inexpensive
When you are on a tight budget, taking the plunge and trying new recipes can be difficult. Fortunately ours Flatbread without yeast only requires three basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen: Self-rising flour, Greek yogurt and olive oil. They come together to create a super tasty crust for this simple flatbread. The additional toppings you use are entirely up to you, so it’s easy to stick to a set budget.
Delicious toppings for every season
You may have a budget to stick to, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with the ingredient toppings! There are many ways to add inexpensive flavors to your pizza. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
- Top your flatbread with white beans and kale for a calming and nutritious vegetarian meal.
- Use a combination of winter root vegetables to add sweet flavors like butternut squash, beets, carrots, or parsnips.
- In the summer, choose light vegetables such as zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant or roasted red peppers.
- Be even cheaper and use extra pantry staples like pickled banana peppers and olives.
- Herbs and spices like fresh oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary can add a tremendous amount of flavor to a recipe without consuming a ton of calories.
Make it a plant-based pizza
If you have a plant-based diet, you can easily make this flatbread vegan-friendly with just a few simple changes. First, you’ll want to choose a dairy-free brand of yogurt from your local grocery store to replace the Greek yogurt in flatbread. In addition, instead of ricotta and parmesan, make ours vegetable cheese spread. The flatbreads taste great even without cheese!
This delicious recipe is perfect to share. Cut the flatbread into six or eight pieces and bring it with you as a starter for your family’s vacation get-together. This is a great way to impress all of your guests the next time you’re throwing a party. Of course, you can always do it yourself! It’s a fantastic light dinner and this flatbread tastes just as good for lunch the next day.
