Recipe: Two-Ingredient Hummus Flatbread

IMG_2668If you are looking for something else to do with your favorite hummus, then look no further than this simple hummus flatbread. 

I absolutely love hummus, and I’m always looking to discover new ways to make breads. So, turning hummus into flatbread was probably destined to happen at some point. The nice thing is, this recipe could not be easier to make.

All you need to make this flatbread are your hummus of choice and garbanzo bean flour. Of course, you can always add any seasoning you like, but the base recipe is just those two ingredients. The key to making this flatbread work is to let it cook low-and-slow before flipping it over. If you don’t (and it happened to me on the first attempts), the bread will fall apart when you try and turn it over.

I use Oasis’s Mediterranean Medley Hummus in my flatbread. Since you already have the hummus flavoring, I eat it plain by itself or beside a veggie burger.

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup hummus

1 heaping tablespoon garbanzo bean flour

Directions: 

Preheat a non-stick skillet on a low heat. Combine hummus and flour in a small bowl. Mix together until all the flour is well-incorporated and the batter is thick. Pour the batter onto the skillet and use a spoon to flatten it in a pancake-like shape, approximated an inch thick.

Let the mixture sizzle low and slow for at least 15 minutes. You want the top to look dry and firm. Then flip the flatbread over with a spatula and cook for another 10 minutes. Finally, flip it onto to a plate and enjoy!

Makes one six-inch flatbread.
