Soft garlicky herb flatbreads make a great side with any meal, with soups, salads, dips, curries and more. This easy Garlic herb Flatbread has no yeast, doesn’t need hours to rest, and has a secret ingredient. Instead of non dairy yogurt, this flatbread uses aquafaba!

Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of chickpeas or the viscous liquid remaining when you cook chickpeas at home. This viscous liquid has many uses like making eggless meringue, macarons, and used in many places instead of eggs/egg whites, as a binder for baking and more. Find out more about chickpea brine and all the amazing creations on Vegan Meringue Hits and Misses Facebook Group.

For this flatbread, aquafaba adds moisture, binding and the fluffyness. Make the dough for the flatbread, roll it out, grill or cook then brush with the herbed garlic butter mixture, done! You can also make these flatbreads into Garlic Naan. Press the garlic and cilantro into the rolled out flatbread along with nigella seeds, and then cook. Easy and ready within minutes. No yeast, no waiting for a hour for the dough to sit and rise.

You can make this bread with yeast, use 1 tsp active yeast or use this yeasted Garlic Naan. It takes me the same time to put the dough together for with or without yeast, so personally I prefer the with yeast bread. To make this bread gluten-free, use the gluten-free blend used for gluten-free Naan in my book, or use a gluten-free blend with gum like Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

Ingredients 
 

Garlic herb butter:

  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or olive oil
  • 2 to 3 large cloves of garlic, minced or crushed
  • 2 tbsp fresh herbs, finely chopped., I used cilantro and dill. use any of parsley, tarragon, basil, rosemary, thyme

flatbread:

  • 1 cup unbleached white flour , or all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 tsp salt, use less if your aquafaba is highly salted
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped herbs of choice

Wet

  • 2 tsp oil
  • 3 tbsp aquafaba, chickpea water, thick viscous water from a can of chickpeas, or from home made chickpeas , or use non dairy yogurt.
  • 2.5 tbsp non dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • a pinch of sugar, omit if using sweetened non dairy milk

Instructions 

Prep your garlic herb spread:

  • Melt vegan butter in a bowl or warm the olive oil. Mince or crush the garlic and mix in. Mix in half of the chopped herbs.

Make the flatbread:

  • In a bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients until well combined. Mix in the herbs.
  • In a small bowl mix the non dairy milk and lemon juice. Add to the dry. Add aquafaba, oil and sugar to the dry. Mix well and knead for a minute. The dough will seem dry then start to get sticky as you keep kneading. Add a tsp or more flour if too sticky or a tsp non dairy milk if too dry. You want the dough to be somewhat sticky. Cover the bowl and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Spray oil on the dough and knead for a few seconds to smooth out.
  • Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each into a smooth ball. Flatten one, dust in flour and roll out into an oval or circle shape.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat. When the skillet is evenly hot. Place the rolled out flatbread on it. Place a lid on the flatbread and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Place directly on the flame or grill to blacken, or continue to cook on the skillet until golden brown spots.
  • Place on a serving plate and immediately brush with garlic herbed butter. Sprinkle some herbs.
  • Repeat for all flatbreads. Store covered lightly in a kitchen towel over the counter for the day, or refrigerate for upto 4 days.

Alternatively: make these flatbreads like garlic Naans.

  • At step3 , after rolling out the flatbread. Spray water on the flatbread. Sprinkle minced garlic and herbs on the flatbread and press in. You can also sprinkle some nigella seeds and press in.
  • Place the flatbread with garlic side up on a hot skillet. Cover and cook as above. Once the flatbread is cooked, brush it with melted vegan butter or oil. Sprinkle more herbs/cilantro and store.

    Thanks for this recipe! You mention that you can use yeast. Could you be more specific? I’m having a hard time figuring out where to incorporate it into the recipe. Thank you!

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      Sure cathy: first bloom the yeast in a large mixing bowl, pour warm water and stir in 2 tsp sugar. Sprinkle yeast on the water and let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy. Then start from step one in the method as usual.

    These are the best flatbreads I’ve ever made and super quick too. Even the very picky 7yo enjoyed them

    I just made this and it is sooo good! It’s super easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I made one batch, then after realizing how little it made, put together another batch. So glad I did because my family ate it all up!
