Vegan Fluffy Flatbreads

Vegan Fluffy Flatbreads

A few days ago, I hadn't even noticed that we were running out of bread. I couldn't make it to the store, so I quickly improvised these fluffy flatbreads, with yeast. They can be a wonderful replacement for bread or they can be eaten as donuts, with a little jam on, just like the vegan donuts.  

I really enjoyed these quick vegan flatbreads, the dough is nice to work with. As for the result - one wouldn't even say they were vegan, they were too tasty. They can go along with hummus, mashed beans or any other dishes you like.


Warm water
250 ml
1 tsp
Active dry yeast
7 g
or 15g fresh yeast
0.5 tsp
Vegetable oil
100 ml
White flour
350 g

Step by step

Step 1

In a big bowl, pour the warm water, add the sugar and the yeast, mix to combine and let stand for 10 minutes, until frothy.

Step 4

Tip dough onto the table and knead for about 5 minutes, until smooth and soft.

Of course, you can dust the table with flour, if it's too sticky.

Step 5

Oil the bowl in which you combined the ingredients, place the ball-shaped dough, grease with oil (so that it will remain soft and won't form a skin). 

Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and allow it to rise for 1 hour.

Let rest on the table for 10 minutes.

Then, in turn, take each ball and roll out with your hands into a circle, about 7-8mm thick. You may need to flour the table.

Dough is so nice and soft that you won't even need a rolling pin.

Step 10

Heat some oil in a skillet and place the flatbread to fry.

Step 11

Make sure the heat is medium, we want the flatbreads to be well cooked through, not too burned and not uncooked.

When the flatbread is brown on one side, carefully flip on the other side, using a spatula.

Step 12

When it's ready, remove the bread and place the next one in the skillet, in the same oil.

As you cook the breads, place them on top of the other to keep warm - they will also be softer and more tender.

They are wonderful served with some vegan pate - such as hummus or mashed beans - or served with soup or salad etc.

If you want them sweet, serve with your favourite jam...
