Buckwheat Naan Bread

I find it difficult to get a good gluten-free bread, even if nowadays you find many products in supermarket. Then, I always prefer a home-made bread rather than buying a ready product. I also like combining all purpose gluten-free flour with buckwheat, quinoa or millet flour, so you add other important minerals into your nutrition. Today I share with you the recipe for a flat bread, which is gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan. I do it especially when I prepare indian dishes or soups. I was inspired by the Naan bread recipe, so I made this gluten-free version.

You need just a few ingredients and little time to prepare it. I use to prepare a dough in the morning after breakfast, for then to finish it while preparing food for lunch. The steps are really easy, just combine all ingredients together and let rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours. I prefer a dry yeast, it’s easier to work with it. You can keep the baked bread in a fridge also for a few days and warm it on a frying pan before eating (without any oil).

On the picture above, that first piece of bread (half eaten 🙂 ) you can see also one small experiment that worked out very well. I hid a cheese inside of the dough and baked it. It was soo delicious. If you try this also, choose the cheese that has a strong taste, for example Toma might be a good choice.

Summary of the recipe:

Ingredients for 6 pieces

  • 0,5 glass of water
  • 0,5 glass of yogurt (normal or vegan (soy) yogurt)
  • 0,5 package dry yeast
  • 1 glass of gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1,5 glass of buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 0,5 tsp of salt
  • pinch of raw cane sugar

Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth and kind of elastic, but do not overwork the dough
  2. Place a bowl in a warm place, cover it and let it rise in size for 1 or 2 hours
  3. Punch the dough down, place it onto a lightly floured surface
  4. Cut in 6 pieces, shape each in a small ball and after shape the balls into flat circles, they should be about 1,5 cm high. Cover and let rise for other 30 minutes
  5. In the meantime, preheat the oven and bake the bread for 15 minutes at 170 degrees.

Buon appetito! 🙂
