I love this recipe for a quick and easy bread side dish. Again I took a basic and totally rewrote the recipe until it really had nothing to do with the original.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the ingredients in the order given. Stirring well between each item. You will need to knead it a bit by had at the final mix but do not over do it. Just a minute tops. Work fast & keep the dough tender.
  2. The dough should be soft but easily rolled out. You may need to add a bit of flour or water depending on the weather and flour you are using.
  3. Cut into 10-12 pieces. Roll out thin on an oiled surface, I use either olive or coconut oil depending on the weather. Coconut solidifies at 76 degrees.
  4. Create disks aproximately 8 -10" round.
  5. Prick the top of the bread with a fork and fry in a lightly oiled skillet or on a grill. These work well on the outdoor grill if they are oiled well.
  6. They cook fast and should be tender.
  7. Serve with any dish. I love them with soups in the winter and salads or grilled veggies in the summer.

I liked these a lot. I wouldn't say they were fast, but they were pretty easy. I wasn't sure how long to cook them so I sort of just guessed. They are tasty and I used 1/2 tsp thyme and 1/2 tsp basil as I thought the rosemary in the italian seasoning would be overwhelming. I also added about a half teaspoon of garlic granules. Used olive oil, also. I like that my vegan daughter can eat these - and my one and three year olds loved them too.

This was fast, easy and great tasting. I made it with Lentil Soup #381745. My 1 yr old, 2 1/2 yr old and husband gobbled it up. I used olive oil in the dough and a generous amount for frying and they came out great.

This is a lovely flat bread and very different from the piadina I once had! I didn't add in any mixed herbs and left it plain. And I added in about 2 tsp salt which I felt was perfect for us instead of the 4 tsp which the recipe calls for and I used olive oil. The dough was easy to work with. I rolled them out on an oiled surface and didn't bother with oiling the skillet. They did turn out soft. Thank you, Maeven6, for sharing your wonderful recipe, I definitely will be making it again! Made for PAC Spring '08.
