There is no greater pleasure in life than warm rich flatbread, oily garlicky hummus and eating with your hands.

This particular flatbread recipe is the easiest one I've ever, ever used. it can be used as naan for curry, you can enrich the dough with butter if you wanted to and can make an almost Roti type flatbread

This hummus is a fantastic base and you can add a wonderful array of different extras, I've made an avocado hummus (which is in the pictures) by adding half the hummus to a whole avo and blending, you can add carrot greens, chilli, roasted red peppers, it's endless the possibilities.

For the Bread

  • 200g Flour
  • Natural Yoghurt (around 200ml, but may be more)
  • Salt

For the Hummus

  • 1 Can Chickpeas
  • Tahini to taste
  • Olive oil until smooth
  • Salt
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Juice of half lemon
  • Any extras you want


For the flatbreads

Add flour to a mixing bowl (hold some back if you have no spare flour in case your mixture is too wet) and add salt and mix together
Add yoghurt in stages and mix with your hands until incorporated, slightly sticky but still able to be kneaded slightly
Rest whilst making your hummus
Once hummus is made and you're happy, heat a flat pan, surface or the underside of a wok.
Portion flatbread into 4/6/8 (however many you want)
Roll into balls in your hand and placed onto a floured surface and roll out until around 2/3mm thickness
place onto your cooking surface and cook each side until browned and bubbly

For the hummus

Drain your chickpeas and add to mixer
Peel and crush Garlic and add
Squeeze in lemon being careful to not let pips fall in
Add a pinch of salt and tahini (i use usually arouns 1/4 tahini to chickpeas, but if i have more i'll add it)
Turn on mixer and add oil in until paste is smooth
If you're adding extras, then get mixture smooth first and then blend the extras in to get incorporated.


  • Once you've got a flat almost cooked through dough, you can place onto a flame and it'll puff up and char to add smokiness
  • Try using ingredients you'd never think of in the hummus, one of the best ones i've made was smoky chipotle paste in the hummus, and black olives can make a great colour

    This sounds delicious. Can the yogurt be replaced with a different ingredient? I don't have a wok . I am not certain what to use as a flat pan. Please respond if you have time. Thank-You.
