vegan flatbreads semolina

Try saying that ten times over!

These tongue-twisting morsels are so simple, and yet so very toothsome, as our dear friend Mat (who designed this website, FYI) likes to say.

The creation of our flatbreads all began with an online shopping accident, resulting in large quantities of a mysterious ingredient. Ever happen to you? This time it was semolina flour (I had meant to order couscous). And being a semolina virgin I was frankly underwhelmed at the prospect of using up kilos of the stuff.

And that’s where Ann’s magic (and a bit o’ Googling) came in.

You see, I can always count on Ann to generate a torrent of delectable-sounding recipe ideas when I’m faced with an ingredient conundrum. Plus this weekend I had the pleasure of welcoming her and her amoureux to my hideaway in the south of France, so we were able to have a ball getting creative in the kitchen together.

The result? These divine ‘flatties’, accompanied by ludicrous amounts of matcha latte.
