Rach Eats Lunch: Avocado & Rosemary Flatbread

Avocado and rosemary flatbread recipe

Oh boy. Sometimes I have those weekends where it all goes a bit wrong - you know the ones, the ones where they start off brilliantly, and you've got seriously high hopes for them... only for them to go just a teeny bit wrong. No, not just a teeny bit... a LOT wrong. Uh oh. But in the midst of the madness, I've learnt a new hair trick - how to curl your hair without really trying. Basically, all you do is grab two thin hairbands, then separate brushed wet hair (straight out the shower) into two. You then twist and twist and twist your hair and tie each pigtail at the end with a hairband. And pin it up at the back. Yes, you'll look like Mary from Coronation Street while it dries (and it needs to dry thoroughly, mind, so it'll take hours) - but it definitely works! Yes to being totally lazy but also totally awesome.

Today's recipe is brought to you by... OH GOD, IT'S GREEN AGAIN. Oh, I'm so sorry guys. There will be something other than green on Friday, but my avocado ripened quicker than I thought it would, so I'm going to have to eat it now and ask questions later. But I've made it into a proper hipstery brunch - avocado on flatbread with a bit of cheese and some herbs and it's the perfect lazy lunch if you ask me.



(I forgot your present, but I do avocado)

You'll need:
1 ripe avocado
110g self raising flour
70g plain soya yoghurt
1 teaspoon each dried rosemary flakes and cumin powder
1 sprinkle ground sea salt
1 teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)
20g feta cheese, to crumble on top

1. Grab the panini press, you're gonna need it! Add the flour, rosemary flakes, cumin, and salt to a bowl. Pour in the soya yoghurt and start stirring it together until it makes a stiff but pliable dough.

2. Plop the dough on a big piece of baking paper, then roll it out flat until it's about 2cm thick. Heat up the panini press and stick it straight in there for about 3-4 minutes until puffy and hot and delicious and slightly burnt. Yum.

3. Cut around the ripened avocado and scoop out the flesh. Mash it up in a bowl until it's fluffy. Then take out the flatbread from the panini press, peel off the paper and add to a plate. Spoon the avocado allllll ovvvvvverrrrr the flatbread, add a sprinkle of chilli flakes if you fancy, and crumble some feta on top. Eat immediately. Yesssss.

This is the dream combo for any avocado - it's like a party in my mouth, man! It's delicious - buttery avocado, salty, cheesy feta, a bit of a kick from the chilli - all completed with some spiced flatbread. You've got a winner on your hands, Rach. (I know - Rach.)
