Mediterranean Flat BreadMediterranean Flat Bread… Healthy & Simple to make!

The Mediterranean region is well known for typical country specialites such as their bread. It is a fact that we consume loads of bread in our diet as it is a great snack and it is very filling. With some many different kinds of bread that distinguish from which part of the world is coming from, we have to say that it is hardly to obtain a great quality recipe from a bread maker… is it?

Well… it is also a bit tricky to do bread as it is a pretty long process from the start till the end. In this recipe I tried to bring together the flat bread which comes from the Asian culture and the Mediterranean flavours together. It is also a pretty easy recipe to do and very quick too. You can use it straight away after you formed this simple dough.

For the Mediterranean Flat Bread recipe I used fresh rosemary that I grow personallyat my house and also some spices which will fill your kitchen with aromas while you are grilling the bread later in the process. For this recipe I have for you today, you can add more ingredients to it like sun dried tomatoes, black olives or  fresh chilies. I left it simple as I could so you can see how simple it is to make your fresh bread at home.

You can store these Mediterranean Flat bread in your freezer well wrapped. I use to store them in air tight lid storage boxes. I find them very useful to have around in my kitchen.
