Navajo Flatbreads With Sumac Za’atar

READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 2 persons




  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 of RawSpiceBar’s Sumac Za’atar.
  • Slowly pour in the olive oil, mixing while pouring. Add the warm water and mix again until the dough comes together into a ball.
  • Knead dough continuously for 5-10 minutes. Add flour to coat as you go along and continuously fold the dough in half from either side; the dough will be firm and this is normal.
  • Once kneaded, allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Transfer the risen dough onto a floured surface. Punch to allow accumulated air to escape.
  • Divide the dough into 10 pieces, forming each into a ball.
  • Using the heels of your hands, flatten the balls from either side. Use your thumb and index finger to fully flatten and stretch the dough into a 6″ diameter.
  • Turn the grill or cast iron pan, if you have one, to medium high heat. Brush with oil.
  • Add the flatbreads a few at a time, allowing space between each. Leave for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffy on either side.
  • Sprinkle finished flatbreads with remaining 1/2 of RawSpiceBar’s Sumac Za’atar packet or add spices to olive oil and dip flatbreads in as you eat. Serve as soon as they are ready- these flatbreads are best right out of the pan. Dip them in the broth of your posole, roll them up with chunks of veggies or meat or dip and, most importantly, be creative- enjoy!
