GF Flat Bread - egg free

  • 2 tbsp psyllium (husks or powder)
  • 350g brown rice flour
  • 150g corn starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

Mix in a big bowl.
In another jug/ bowl mix:

  • 750ml warm water
  • 2 1/2 tsp fast action yeast

Mix until the yeast is dissolved and then add to the flour mix along with:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbs ground flax seed
  • 1 tbsp herbs
  • (chopped olives) optional

Mix the batter well, pour into a greased silicone cake mould and leave to one side for 10 mins. The mixture should firm up as the psyllium and flax seeds form a gel substance when wet. Although this bread doesnt rise that much, leave it for 30 mins in a warm place so that yeast produces bubbles and it will have a good bready texture.

Bake for 30 mins or until cooked through. Leave to cool before cutting and serving.
