Transforming Leftover Yogurt Into Fluffy Flatbread Is Almost Too Simple
By Laura Zbinden
If you have yogurt in your fridge that needs to be consumed (and you don't feel like eating it plain), there's a great way to use up your leftovers so that they don't go to waste.
We're talking about flatbread, and the quickest and easiest version of flatbread yogurt only requires two ingredients: thick yogurt and self-rising flour.
To add yogurt to your flatbread recipe, you can swap the water, milk, or oil for plain yogurt. If you are using Greek yogurt, replace every cup of oil with 1¼ cups of yogurt.
Because flatbreads are savory, this trick often works best with plain yogurt that has a hint of sour flavor (like Greek yogurt or skyr).
If you want sweeter-tasting bread, you can use sweetened vanilla yogurt, but you should only use fruit-flavored yogurt if you're making something like raspberry Nutella naan pizza.
If you’re on a gluten-free diet, yogurt can also be helpful by providing extra lift to breads made from chickpea flour, which is naturally gluten-free.
