Vegan soft flatbread ingredients
If you want to make this flatbread recipe you need the following ingredients which are likely in your pantry and fridge:

How to make soft vegan flatbread
To make this flatbread recipe start with the dough. Take the all purpose flour, add salt in the kitchen machine and pulse two or three times to combine.
Then add the unsweetened almond milk (if you are non vegan you can use regular milk) and put it on the stove to warm. Add the vegan butter to the milk.
Warm slowly to dissolve the butter (do not boil the milk). As soon as the butter is dissolved take the milk from the heat.
Add the milk mixture to the flour. Then turn on your kitchen machine or knead it through by hand until you have an elastic dough.
In the kitchen machine this takes about 2 to 3 minutes. By hand this will take more like 10 minutes. Take the dough out of the kitchen machine and flour your board to knead the dough through by hand.
Wrap in foil and let it rest for about 30 to 40 at room temperature so the gluten in the dough can activate.
Make the flatbread
After an ample rest period take the dough out of the foil and knead the dough thoroughly one more time with some flour.
Then slice the dough into 6 pieces to get medium sized (8inch) flatbread or 10 pieces for 6 inch flatbread. If you like bigger flatbread cut into 4 pieces for 10 inch flatbread.
Flour the board and roll the flatbread into a round shape be aware to not roll the flatbread too thin. Then heat a skillet on medium to high heat.
Use some vegetable or olive oil and brush your skillet. Bake the flatbread until you see brown patches and bubbles on the flatbread.
Now turn the flatbread to bake for another 2 minutes. Then the flatbread is done. You can brush some oil and finely chopped garlic to turn it into garlic flatbread. The flatbread remains nice and soft.
These flatbread taste best when you eat them direct. But you can also store them:
- You can keep them in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days put them in a resealable freezer bag
- These also freeze well just put them in a freezer bag
When you want to use them thaw them first and warm in the oven wrapped in aluminium foil at 425℉/210℃ for 10 minutes.
