Greek Pita Bread - Vegan
These pita bread are made with yeast and great flour. They look so tasty and are perfect for a party or everyday meal. Whether these bread is made into delicious wraps with veggies and babaghanoush or dunked into a warm bowl of soup they are incredibly delicious and easy to make!
- 200 grams white flour
- 200 grams whole wheat flour
- 200 grams warm water
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 8 grams dried yeast
Put the yeast and the sugar into the warm water and mix well. Add little by little the flour and start kneading. Add the oil and the salt and continue kneading for 5 minutes until you get a soft dough. Put it in a bowl and let it rest for 1 hour in a warm place.
Spread flour in a surface and separate the dough into 5 small balls. Roll each ball into a medium thickness and let them rest for 5 minutes.
Heat a non - stick pan, sprinkle oil and cook each bread separately for few minutes. When the bread starts to puff up turn it from the other side. Serve immediately, otherwise cover them with a cloth to keep them warm. Enjoy!
1. On this recipe, I combine half white and half whole wheat flour. My next experiment will be a gluten-free pita bread, which is quite tricky to cook but hopefully, I will come out with a tasty recipe.
2. You can enjoy it as a substitute for bread or fill it with vegetables, various sauces or a vegetable burger. In case you do not follow any vegetarian/vegan diet you can add any type of meat you wish.
3. You can omit sugar if you wish
4.To store them, you can put them in the refrigerator or freezer in a clean towel or foil. Prior to use, let them thaw at room temperature and they will become fresh again.
