This month we are cooking Greek recipes! It will definitely be an adventure learning how to cook new things! I am starting with Tzatziki Sauce and Wheat Flatbread. I served this with carrot sticks and roasted chicken thighs. It was very yummy!
Tzatziki Sauce Recipe
1 large cucumber, grated
2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 tsp dry dill
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
Sprinkle of black pepper
1 clove of garlic, crushed
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
Wheat Flatbread Recipe
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 tsp maple syrup
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
3 cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, mix together warm water, maple syrup and yeast. Let sit for about 10 minutes until foamy. Mix in flour and salt. Turn onto floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. Put dough into a large, greased bowl. Let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a board and cut into 8 pieces. Roll each piece out to about a 5-7 inch circle. Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Grease skillet lightly with olive oil. When the skillet is hot, carefully place one circle into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip over and cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side. How long you need to cook the flatbreads depends on how hot your skillet is, you want the flatbread to be brown and slightly puffy. Continue until all the flatbread circles are cooked.
Cut flatbreads into circles and serve immediately!
