  • Baked Good

  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon amaranth flour (or spelt)
  • 1/3 cup cool water
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon parsley or other favorite herb
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

How to make it:
  1. Heat oil over med high heat till a drop of water will dance on the surface of the pan.
  2. Mix all ingredients except oil in a bowl. You want the batter to be quite thin.
  3. Pour batter into pan and smooth out into a large circle with a spatula.
  4. Cover pan and cook 2 minutes.
  5. Do yourself a favor and use a timer for cooking times, these are easy to burn.
  6. Spread remaining 1 t oil on top of flat bread with the back of a teaspoon.
  7. Reduce heat to med-low and cook, covered for 5 minutes.
  8. Turn flat bread and cook, covered for another 5 minutes.
  9. They are good with a little cheese melted on top, or spread with your favorite bean concoction, and they make a yummy sandwich with beans, cheese and big raw spinach leaves placed on top.
  10. You can also add 1T ground flaxseed or ground nuts to the mixture.
  11. If you add dry ingredients, be sure to increase the water a little, you want the batter to be quite thin, whatever goodies you add.
  12. For crispier bread you can continue to turn the bread every 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan as soon as the bread reaches desired crisp. It gets soggy fast if you let it sit in the pan with the cover on.
  13. They are also really good when made with spelt flour or rye flour if you can eat these.
