From an Ayurvedic perspective, store bought bread can be tough on your body.
Why? Yeast is warming and can cause digestive imbalance. And store bought bread is not fresh so there isn’t any prana or life energy left in it. So what’s a health conscious bread lover to do?
Well you’re in luck. With this Simple + Delicious Flatbread Recipe, tasty wraps are quick and easy. Parents, these are perfect for school lunches.
Enjoy it with nut butter and honey or hummus, avocado and veggies. Or try it with your favorite sandwich fixings. For a healthy flour try One Degree Organics Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour.
1/4cupwater, or more (depending on humidity)
1 1/8cupsflour (high quality, organic, non-GMO)
Heat pan or griddle on medium high.
Meanwhile, add flour and salt to small mixing bowl. Slowly add water, working it in with your hand. Mix until dough is slightly sticky (sticks to your hand, but doesn’t leave dough behind). Don’t worry if you add too much water, just mix in a little more flour if you do. Knead until there is some stretchiness to the dough (2-3 min).
Spread extra flour on a cutting board. Break dough up into 4-6 equal size balls. Rollout the balls with a rolling pin, not too thin though – think thin pita bread, thinner than a tortilla.
When the pan is smoking hot, add the rounds. Flip when you start to see big bubbles and seared marks (1 minute or so depending on heat). Wrap finished bread in a cloth napkin and store in an air tight container.
