Recipe: Spring Onion Flatbread (adapted from: Best Eever Three & Four Ingredient Cookbook)
- 450g plain flour
- 1 sachet instant dried yeast
- 4 spring onions finely chopped
- 1 tsp (5g) salt
- 1 1/4 cups (300ml) warm water
A stand mixer will make it easier but you can mix and kneed the dough by hand. Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.
Add the warm water to the flour mixture and mix to form soft, but not sticky dough. Attach a dough hook or turn out the dough onto the bench and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth.
Return the dough to the bowl and cover with some plastic wrap and a tea towel and let it rest in a warm place until doubled in size. Punch down the dough and turn out onto a floured bench. Divide the dough into approximately 16 balls (less if you want larger rounds).
Roll each ball of dough into a round ball and then roll out into a flat round with a rolling pin.
Heat a large fry pan on high and place a round in shaking off any excess flour, and cook for about 1 minute and then flipping it over and cooking for another 30 seconds or so, or until browned.
I decided to fill my wraps with chicken, everybody loves chicken. I just marinated some chicken breast in whatever herbs and spices I had in the pantry, bit of paprika, ground chilli, cumin, can't remember exactly what the combination was but you can season it with whatever your favourites are. Cooked them on a griddle pan to get the nice charred effect.
Sliced and layered with some lettuce, tomato and cucumber and a squeeze of sweet chilli sauce and we have some ultra tasty home made chicken wraps. I was actually suprised at how well they turned out, and they were an absolute hit with the sibblings and the boyfriend. I think the home made flat bread made all the difference though.
I wasn't even thinking about plating presentation so they are looking a little plain. The great thing about these wraps is that you can customise them with whatever ingredients you want. I unfortunatley had to keep mine pretty simple as I was feeding 4 picky eaters, each one different to the other. But sometimes simple is best.
After stuffing ourselves with the wraps for dinner, Ryan and I headed out into the city for Sydney Festival's First Night. I took my new camera out with me to play around with some night shots. This was Martin Place.
Some awesome drum performances.

This was around the corner from Chifley Square, close to where Parliament House and the Sydney Hospital are. There were some street performers which is what everyone was crowded around. It was a fun night, out and about just soaking in the atmosphere.
