Today is the first day of May! I can’t believe it. Time flies, doesn’t it? I graduate in 10 days and I cannot tell you how excited/relieved/thankful I am. I have one exam to get through, so pray for me please!
Today’s recipe is one that is a huge hit with my family. It only takes 10 minutes to make (maybe 15 if it’s your first time), and that includes cooking time. The ingredients are simple, the cooking process is quick, and this can be manipulated to fit into any meal idea! I hope you love it.
Greek Yogurt Flat Bread
You will need:
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
- a grill, a grill pan, or a flat dry pan
To get started, add the flour, salt, and baking powder into a bowl. Whisk it around until it is all mixed together. Go ahead and dollop the Greek yogurt into the middle of the bowl. To mix this without getting completely messy, start by covering the yogurt with the surrounding flour mixture. Once it’s covered, press down gently. Keep folding the flour over onto the yogurt and pressing down until it is all mixed in. Form it into a ball. Your hands shouldn’t get too messy if you do it this way.
The ball of dough should be firm and not sticky at this point. Go ahead and flour a surface. Place the dough onto the floured surface and sprinkle some flour on top. Roll the dough out into whatever shape you like. Mine always ends up in this oval/rectangle kind of shape. I just go with it. It should be about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. If you find that the dough is sticky, sprinkle a little flour on top to keep your rolling pin from sticking.
At this point I transfer the dough onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. This is where you can get as creative as you want with seasoning. For today though, I am keeping it simple. We are eating this with soup, so I am not going to overly season it.
I drizzle 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil over the dough and spread it out to the very edges with my hands. I sprinkle salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning over the top. Flip it over and do the same to the other side.
If you’re grilling this, cook it for 2-3 minutes on each side over med-high flame. If you’re grilling this in a grill pan, do the same. The grill marks will vary from golden brown to a slight char on the edges. The inside of the bread will be nice and fluffy, yet dense and chewy. The outside will have a light crunch and excellent texture.
If I am eating this with soup, I cut it into squares that are easy for dipping and scooping. You can also pile on a salad with a balsamic vinegar dressing and fresh tomatoes for a flatbread lunch. The possibilities are really endless!
I hope you love this recipe. It’s a family favorite of mine, and this specific amount is enough for each person to have 2-3 pieces alongside their meal. Again, it is very easy and super quick to make! I love that it only has a couple ingredients and doesn’t require any sort of rise time or yeast activation.
As always, thank you for your support. If you try this recipe, I’d love some feedback! If you don’t already, give me a follow over on Instagram @thecatholickitchen.
Lots of love and many blessings,
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me tell you,
‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’
If you loved me,
you would rejoice that I am going to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you this before it happens,
so that when it happens you may believe.
I will no longer speak much with you,
for the ruler of the world is coming.
He has no power over me,
but the world must know that I love the Father
and that I do just as the Father has commanded me.”
John 14: 27-31
