Garlic Herb Flatbread


I can’t get enough of this Garlic Herb Flatbread recipe! Do I love it because it’s simple? Or because it’s done in one bowl without a mixer? Or because it’s perfect for soaking up and mopping up all that gorgeously rich curries and dips? All of the above! Warm, pillowy soft, garlic- and herb-infused, these flatbreads are mouthwateringly delicious. You’ll find it hard to stop at one.

Start by mixing your flour, yeast, garlic, herbs, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, then pour in the oil and about ½ a cup of warm water. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding another splash of water if the dough looks too dry. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. This will take about 2 minutes. Roll the dough into a ball and place it in an oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough sit until doubled in size. Divide the dough into 6 even pieces. Using a rolling pin, flatten each portion of dough into a disk. Cook the flatbreads, one at a time, in a hot cast iron skillet until bubbly and golden. Put a half dozen of these freshly baked flatbreads under a clean dish towel to keep them warm, and serve alongside your favorite Indian-inspired dishes, dips, and grilled meats.

Steps to make Garlic Herb Flatbread


Combine dry ingredients


In a large mixing bowl, mix together 1 packet active dry yeast, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon minced herbs, ¾ teaspoon sea salt, ½ teaspoon organic cane sugar, 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, and ¾ cup spelt flour.


Make dough


Make a well in the dry ingredients and add 1 tablespoon olive oil and ½ cup warm water to start. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding more water as needed to form a dough.




Once the dough starts to combine, transfer it to a well-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 2 minutes. Add more flour as needed to prevent sticking.


Transfer to oiled bowl


Wipe out the mixing bowl and add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Add the dough and roll it around to coat, then cover with plastic wrap.


Let rise


Set the dough in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.


Divide dough


Once doubled in size, divide the dough into 6 even pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Arrange the balls on a lightly floured surface and loosely cover them with a damp towel. Let rest for 15 minutes.


Heat cast iron skillet


Heat a large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Lightly grease the preheated skillet with olive oil.


Roll out


One at a time, on a lightly floured surface, roll each dough ball into an oval, about 7 inches long and slightly less than ⅛-inch thick.




When the skillet is hot, add a piece of the rolled-out dough to the hot skillet and cook for 2 ½ minutes or until the top starts to bubble and the bottom turns lightly golden. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side. Remove from the skillet and wrap in a clean dish towel. Repeat, adding more oil to coat the surface, if needed.



Enjoy immediately! To store, let cool completely and place in a resealable plastic bag or container for up to 3 days. Reheat before serving.

Even if you are a novice cook, this easy Garlic Herb Flatbread recipe is simple to follow. Pillowy soft and so delicious, these flatbreads don’t require an oven and are made with just a few pantry staples. Did you make this recipe? Tag @cookmerecipes on Instagram and hashtag it #cookmerecipes.
