Chia Pan Bread.
This bread is very versatile, nutritious and filling.
Ingredients for four buns
8 Tablespoons ground chia seed – use milled chia seeds or grind your own
2 teaspoons of baking powder
8 Tablespoons plain flour of choice – I like to use quinoa flour, potato flour, oat flour or spelt flour
Half a grated onion/or half a zucchini grated/or same quantity grated carrot
Put the ground chia seeds in a bowl with the flour and baking powder.
Grate the onion or other vegetable of choice into the eggs and beat well with a fork.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, mix well then turn out onto a floured board.
It will look like this (not very appetising)
Knead well until all the dry ingredients are absorbed and it starts to look a bit oily.
It will look like this
Shape into four bun sized flat circular shapes
Use a heavy based non-stick fry-pan and cook for a few minutes on either side with a lid or cover to keep the heat in.
Top with your favourite spread.
I use this to make make four hamburger bun sized flatbreads and cut them in half through the middle when cooked.
This is great topped with salad/meat/cheese as an open sandwich.
It is also great topped with tomato and cheese & grilled for a tasy and filling lunch
This bread can also be baked in a hot oven for about 10 to 15 minutes.
