Chickpea Flatbreads with a Yoghurt Dip

, , ,

This is the perfect nibble to serve at a drinks party or before a dinner party. The yoghurt dip is fresh and vibrant and the chickpea flat breads are great for dunking in.

This dish is a healthy take on the Greek classic of flat breads (gyro) with tzatziki and is a real treat for the taste buds! Unlike the traditional wheat based side dish, these chickpea flat breads are super clean, gluten free and are simply made from ground chickpeas and water.

This plant based dish is a fantastic source of iron, packing about 7mg in this recipe! Chickpeas are also a fantastic source of protein for vegetarians and are great for weight management as they are full of filling fibre.


Directions

  1. Mix the flour with the water and turmeric and leave to the side- this will form the batter for your flat breads.
  2. Squeeze the excess water out of the cucumber and mix it with the yoghurt and garlic. Finely chop the mint leaves and mix into the yoghurt with the olive oil, a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a small non stick pan with 1 tsp of coconut oil (on a medium heat) and pour a little of the mixture into the pan so it just covers the base of the pan. After a minute or two flip the chickpea flat bread and cook the other side until it is cooked through and charred on both sides.
  4. Repeat this with the rest of the mix.
  5. Rip up the chickpea flat breads and dunk them into the dip.
