Garlic Herb Pitta Bread

Hi everyone, how has life been treating you?

Since the ‘lockdown’ I have really been into making bread varieties. Usually, I would just stick to a pizza base dough, but I’ve made a plain bread loaf, flat bread, tortilla wraps and pitta bread over the months. To be honest they are all quite similar using mainly flour and water but they all taste so different and each complement a range of dishes. Since these are homemade, I opted to make them as healthy as possible, and as you can see in the images below, they are not covered in oil but tasted so good.

Garlic Herb Pitta Bread recipe (makes 6)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and lightly oil an oven tray.
  • Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl making a well in the centre and pour in the water and oil.
  • Use your hands or a wooden spoon to form a dough and knead for 5 minutes. Shape into 6 circles, place on the tray and leave to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and set aside until needed.

I love this meal because it’s so versatile and you can literally eat it at any time of the day. It’s simple yet very tasty and filling therefore keeping you full for a long while after eating.

Ingredients I used:
– 2 slices of brown bread toasted
– 1 egg
– baked beans
– 1/2 plantain

There’s lots of different flavours going on you get the sweetness from the plantain, savoury from the beans and salty from the egg.

I like to cut my plantain into circles and fry until golden on each side, with my egg I always crack it into a bowl first add a little salt and pepper then whisk lightly before pouring into a frying pan. I didn’t butter my toast because I’ve already got 2 of the foods which are fried.

Even though this dish is quite healthy for and even healthier alternative I would suggest having a boiled egg and simmering the plantain with the skin on for 15mins.
