What do you like on your flatbreads?

Making your own pesto’s is damn delicious and no need for those store bought ones that cost an arm and a leg and quite often come in plastic. If you are used to only store-bought ones then this Sun-dried tomato one will blow your mind. The sunflower seeds and cashew nuts add delicious nutty flavour while the Nutritional yeast adds some cheese savoury goodness. I have personally become a huge fan of nutritional yeast.

According to Health Line,Nutritional yeast is a popular food product often used in vegan cooking, It gets its name from the protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it contains.

Ingredients

Flat Bread

Pesto

Toppings

  • Fried Mushrooms
  • Roasted peppers
  • Rocket
  • Fresh Tomatoes
  • Dukkah

Instructions

  • To a large mixing bowl, add yeast, salt, sugar, flour and whisk.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and add olive oil and two-thirds of the warm water to start. Stir with a wooden spoon to mix. Add more water as needed until a dough forms.
  • Transfer to a clean, well-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic – about 2 minutes – adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  • Wipe out mixing bowl and add a bit of oil. Roll dough around to coat and position seam-side down in the bowl. 
  • Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap. Set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  • Once doubled in size, cut dough into 6 even pieces, arrange on a clean surface, and lay a damp towel on top. Let rest.
  • In the meantime you can prepare all your toppings

Pesto

  • Place all the ingredients for the pesto into a blender and blend until almost smooth. You can add some of the oil from the sundried tomatoes if you want to make it a bit smoother or easier to blend.
  • In a heavy based pan (I like to use my cast iron pan), add a tiny little drizzle of olive oil, roll out the flatbreads and add in one at a time into the medium to high heated pan. 
  • It should cook slowish and bubble a bit.
  • Add on your toppings and enjoy!
