You can find Spelt flour at most stores that sell bulk grains or at health food stores. The amount of water you add will determine the thickness of your end product, from a pancake to a crepe. They work well as a wrap or cut into wedges and toasted in the oven, it makes great chips for a humus dip. You can change the spices to fit your taste. For a little variety, try adding a little brown sugar or honey instead of the onions, oregano and garlic. Just remember, you'll be eating what the Roman Legions ate as their dietary staple!
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 tablespoons powdered milk
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Mix dry ingredients.
- Add the liquids, garlic and oregano.
- For a thinner batter, add water as needed.
- Mix well.
- Preheat a cast iron griddle or pan and oil or spray.
- Ladle the batter onto the griddle and as it cooks, sprinkle the chopped onions on the top side.
- When bubbles appear on the surface and the center sets-up, flip over and cook till the edges start to dry and the center is firm.
We thought this was pretty good. Different then what I expected, very much pancake like (soft wet dough) instead of tortilla like. But nice dipped into lentils. I didn't find them good reheated, so try to make only what you'll eat at that meal.
Finally, a flatbread recipe that is easy and uses a wheat alternative! Thanks for posting. I'd love to see more spelt recipes!
Great to have another spelt reipe that was quick to make for dinner. I put marinara sauce and feta on top and it was just right for a quick meal. Thanks!
