method

Flatbreads

In a bowl mix all ingredients together with a spoon, then using hands, fold the mix together.

Sprinkle flour on a clean bench. Place the dough on top. Knead for a minute until mix is brought together.

Place in a lightly floured bowl, cover and rest. Meanwhile prepare your Lamb mix.

Middle Eastern Lamb

Preheat oven 220°C fan forced.

In a large bowl combine oil, tomato paste, parsley, and all spices and stir with a fork until well combined. Stir in lamb mince, onion, garlic, and tomato and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Divide the flatbread dough into 4. Using a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll each out in long oval shape, approx. 3mm in thickness. Place the dough on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Divide the lamb mixture between the 4 flatbread doughs and spoon evenly over the dough. Randomly place cheese over the lamb mixture.

Bake in the hot oven for approx. 6-8 minutes or until the dough is golden brown, the topping is cooked and cheese melted.

Garnish with dollops of hummus, cherry tomatoes, pinenuts and parsley, and then drizzle with olive oil. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Note: if you prefer, you can buy pre made flatbreads.
