These flatbreads are super easy to make, and only take a few mins to cook. We think they are the perfect accompaniment to most meals!

Try them with a humble chilli, or even a curry if you are so inclined. In fact, they'd be absolutely delicious with our light and tasty tomato and mozzarella with salt and vinegar roasted fava beans recipe.

Fava bean flour is UK grown, full of nutritional value and a great gluten free option. It has a subtle, almost nutty taste and is a definite must try! You can buy it quickly and easily from our friends at Hodmedods.
