Rach Eats Lunch: Salt & Pepper Flatbread with Mint Pea Dip

Flatbread with mint pea dip recipe

Today, I'm mostly in Painville, USA. Yes, I have a bad stomach, a really, really bad stomach, hence all the punctuation. I hate this part of my month, quite frankly. I say it every single time, and try and dress it up with a "This too will pass," and "It's only for three days, you're going to be alright," but still - it really, really hurts. It makes my brain all frazzled and fuzzy too, and halfway between crying and laughing hysterically, and eating all the things. So, I apologise for any fuzzy, frazzled writing today. I'm just being me!

For these days, you need an easy recipe to keep you going, and keep you happy too. I've been raiding the cupboards and I think I have the answer: a flatbread with a gorgeous minty pea dip to dunk the flatbread into. And a side helping of veggies, just because. A bit like a salad, but with carbs. So, with that in mind, get your aprons on.

Salt & Pepper Flatbread with Mint Pea Dip
A healthy light lunch with a super minty dip.
  • 110g self raising flour
  • 70g plain soya yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon each salt, pepper and paprika
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 2 teaspoons mint sauce
  • 30g feta cheese
  • 1 large handful mixed peppers
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled
Start off by mixing the flour, salt, pepper, paprika and soya yoghurt together into a pliable, fluffy dough. Roll it out between two pieces of baking paper to a 1cm thickness.Prep the vegetables, cutting the carrots and peppers into strips. Boil up a pan of hot water and add the frozen peas - cook the peas until they're nice and soft (about 15-20 minutes), then drain the water.Add the peas to a blender, along with the mint sauce. Blend it up into a smooth paste. Heat up a panini press and add the veggies to it - grill them for about five minutes until warm.Pop the flatbread in the panini press for 3 minutes until hot and fluffy. Stick it on a plate, along with the vegetables and cubes of feta cheese, and spoon the mint pea dip on the side. Serve immediately.
