Recipe: Easy Peasy Flatbreads

This recipe is so easy it's ridiculous :o)

2 cups plain flour

1 cup natural yogurt

good pinch of salt
extra flour for kneading/rolling
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl, really get your hands in. Once it's all in a lump take it out and knead it. You may find you will need to add more flour otherwise it will be too sticky. Once your satisfied that it feels all soft, make a longish sausage so you can cut it into 8 pieces. Roll out as thin as you dare then place on a hot (medium), dry frying pan or griddle. Cook for a few minutes on one side then turn it over and cook the other. While cooking the others I place the cooked ones in a clean cloth that I have folded over to keep them warm. You can add herbs or spices of your choosing depending on what you are serving them with. Yum, yum.

I've had these with curry (with nigella seeds added), with fajitas, with fish fingers stuck in them!, with houmous, with tuna/mayo.......anything you like.

Hi shell
The flatbreads ( and everything else) look delicious!! Please may I ask- when you put nettle in -do you do anything with it first? Chopping/ soaking etc? And how do you not get stung when kneading?
Sorry daft questions ( can't you tell I'm a nettle virgin!)-but have been promising myself to give them a try.....

Oh! I wish I had read this this morning. I made a nettle dal for lunch but had no flat bread to go with it. Good thing there were leftovers, I'll still be able to try it with your flatbread. Sounds SO easy!
