|Stuffed Mutant Flatbread - Yummy!|
The great thing about this type of recipe is you can basically season the potatoes with anything that hits your fancy. Or even add other veggies, really the sky's the limit. The only thing you need to be careful about is adding lumpy ingredients because when you roll the dough out with the filling encased you don't want anything bursting through. I experienced a few tomato bits squeezing out the edges.
Stuffed Mutant Flatbread
2 medium cooked potatoes (I used leftovers)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp paprika
2 or 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
pepper to taste
1 shallot chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1/2 tomato finely diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mash up the potatoes with a fork or your hands and mix in the remaining ingredients including the sauteed veggies.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 to 3 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 tsp salt
1 cup water
The dough was very simple, just mix the flour, ground flax seed and salt and mix in the water. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth. Cover and leave it until you're ready and then divide it into 8 little balls.
Have some flour handy. Take each ball, coat it in a little flour, flatten it with your hand and then roll it out into a circle about 3 inches wide. Add approximately 1/4 cup of the potato mixture, pinch up the dough around the filling and seal it inside the ball. Gently roll out the ball into a 5 or 6 inch circle.
Heat a cast iron pan on medium heat. Add enough vegetable oil until it is lightly coated. Pan fry the bread for about 1 to 2 minutes until there are gorgeous brown spots on the bottom and then flip it over for about the same amount of time. I brushed on a tiny bit more oil on top before I flipped it because I didn't want the bread to be too dry. You can pat the bread a little with a spatula as it's cooking so browns evenly. It will puff up a little as it cooks. Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy! I don't know how well they store because we wolfed them down immediately. My daughter liked the bread more than the filling because of the bits of shallot. She has a supernatural tongue that can sense any bit of onion-like material and spit it out no matter how small.
