A soft, mellow alternative to regular bread. And it only requires 2-3 ingredients. Roll it out thin enough and you can even turn it into a wrap to fill with vegetables, beans and whatnot. It's great for tearing, sharing and dipping into hot & spicy soups. Try it with bean chilli too.
- 2 ripe plantains
- 2-3 cups wholegrain flour
- 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)
Peel and cut the plantains into small chunks. Place in a large mixing bowl and add the chilli powder. Add the flour slowly, mixing as you go along, until you have a firm dough.
Wrap the dough in some cling film and refrigerate for 20 mins.
Take the dough out of the fridge and divide it into 4-6 portions. Roll each portion out on a lightly floured surface to form a round flatbread shape.
Cook each piece in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat for 5 minutes on each side (or until it has browned nicely)
