Yum. This was great. Quick and easy and I used it as a side to my pumpkin and red lentil curry. I omitted the herb mixture and just kept it simpl. It was a perfect alternative to naan. Thank you.


this was really good for me! i used a mix of cinnamon and sugar replacement instead of the herb mixture and it was really great! next time i'm gonna try the herb mixture and i can't wait to try it! thanks for a great recipe! :D


Hmmmm.... interesting. I made one batch exactly as written, except I didn't have rice flour, so used 1/2 cup whole wheat & 1/2 cup unbleached white all-purpose flour. For the 'herb blend,' I used a mixture of parsley, thyme leaves, basil, & nooch, and I used the full 3/4 cup of water... the result was ok, but a little too much salt & oil for my taste, & took a long time to get not-wet in the middle, then didn't have the pliability I was hoping for to make wraps & things.. BUT, I love the idea, and maybe just need to use rice flour, &/or make the texture a little thinner with more water... For an exploratory 2nd batch, I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup corn meal, with 1 Tbsp oil, 3/4 tsp salt, 2 tsp nooch, 2 tsp whole cumin seeds, & 1-1/4 cup almond milk.... the result was a pretty yummy flatbread/ corncake that I'll eat with salsa or nooch spread, for a savory breakfast (which I prefer to sweet pancakes & such)... so: thanks for the idea! I'll probably keep tinkering with it, and make it again in various incarnations... good basis for quick-n-easy flatbread experimentation!
