Greek Vegetables with 3-ingredient Flatbread
I love Mediterranean food. Give me a plate of fava with seasonal veg, a glass of Retsina, and a piece of baklava and you've got a happy lady. Now this recipe is none of those things but it for sure was delicious.
Many of my client, friends and family are sensitive to gluten (including myself . So although traditional pita and tzatziki are no longer on the menu, I've created a distant cousin that might just surpass the original. The flatbread is made from chickpea flour giving it a fiber and protein upgrade. The tzatziki is still tangy and delicious but has a slight nuttiness from the cashews. Top it off with some awesome Greek roasted veg and you've got a killer meal. (P.s. Retsina still pairs well).
