Looking for some no-fuss meal? Here is one. Well, the dip part at least. It basically is a variation of hummus, but with more or less all ingredients swapped it tastes noting alike. And even texture-wise is different. But nonetheless good. I mean it’s nothing overly fancy, but it makes a nice quick snack, with quite a load of protein.
While this part is vegan, the flat bread is not. It also bread takes a bit of time though I have to admit. If you want to go for some other bread, the dip will work as well for them :) The steps by themselves are pretty easy. It tastes a bit different from normal flat bread due to the millet flour, but this one also gives the bread a nice protein boost :)
So the bread and the dip do pair quite well, but it doesn’t hurt to add some avocado or tomato or so to the combo ;)

- about ¾ Cup / 150g roasted paprika
- 1 glove garlic
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 branch of fresh rosemary
- salt, pepper, turmeric and cayenne pepper to taste

Recipe millet flat bread
- ¾ Cup / 150ml milk
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 packet dry yeast
- 3 ½ Cups / 450g flour, half whole grain millet and half whole grain wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2/3 Cup / 160g yoghurt
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. salt
In a bowl mix together the milk, sugar and yeast. Set aside for about 30-45 minutes until the surface gets foamy.
In another bowl mix together the flours, baking powder and salt.
In yet another bowl whisk the egg, yoghurt and oil until everything softens up a bit. Then add the egg-yoghurt mixture and the milk-yeast mixture to the flour and knead for about 4 minutes and then form into a smooth ball. Cover with a clean damp towel and set aside for about 1 hour.
Divide the dough ball into 8-10 smaller pieces. Roll each of the out flat.
Heat a skillet to high heat and when hot place the flat discs in the pan. Bake each side for about 2 minutes or until nicely browned.
