Here’s a recipe for vegan stuffed flatbread filled with flavorful mashed potatoes:

Ingredients for Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water

Ingredients for Potato Filling:

  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for sautéing

Instructions:

  1. Start by making the dough. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Gradually add the warm water and olive oil, mixing until a dough forms.
  2. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  3. While the dough is resting, prepare the potato filling. Boil the diced potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and mash them using a potato masher or fork. Set aside.
  4. In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and chopped onion, and sauté until they become translucent.
  5. Add ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, salt, and pepper to the pan. Stir well to combine with the onions and garlic.
  6. Add the mashed potatoes to the pan and mix everything together until well combined. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. If desired, stir in chopped fresh cilantro for extra flavor. Remove from heat and let the filling cool slightly.
  7. Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  8. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls (about golf ball size). Roll out each ball into a circle or oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Place a spoonful of the potato filling onto one half of each dough circle, leaving a small border around the edges.
  10. Fold the other half of the dough over the filling, pressing the edges together to seal. You can crimp the edges with a fork to ensure they are tightly sealed.
  11. Carefully transfer the stuffed flatbreads to the preheated griddle or skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  12. Once cooked, remove the flatbreads from the griddle and serve warm.
  13. Enjoy your delicious vegan stuffed flatbreads with potato filling as a tasty snack or main dish!

Feel free to customize this recipe by adding your favorite herbs or spices to the potato filling. Enjoy your homemade vegan stuffed flatbreads!

Tips For Making Better Food

How To Make Your Tofu Crispy

I’m not going to lie, I used to HATE tofu. A couple years ago my sister-in-law made me crispy orange tofu and in that moment, I fell in love with tofu.

How To Roast Potatoes Perfectly Everytime

Roasting potatoes to perfection involves a few key steps and techniques. Here’s a simple guide to help you roast the most delicious potatoes:

Ingredients:

  • Potatoes (preferably russet or Yukon Gold for roasting)
  • Olive oil or melted butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Optional: Herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, or parsley) and garlic powder for extra flavor

Instructions:

  1. Choose the Right Potatoes:

    • Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes work well for roasting because they have a good starch content, which helps create a crispy exterior.
  2. Preheat Your Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to around 425-450°F (220-230°C). A hot oven helps to crisp up the potatoes faster.
  3. Prepare the Potatoes:

    • Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt. You can peel them if you prefer, but leaving the skins on can add extra texture and flavor.
    • Cut the potatoes into evenly sized pieces. For roast potatoes, you can cut them into chunks or wedges, depending on your preference.
  4. Parboil (Optional Step):

    • Parboiling the potatoes before roasting can help them become extra crispy on the outside while remaining fluffy inside. To parboil, place the potato chunks in a pot of salted boiling water for about 5-7 minutes, then drain and let them dry out for a few minutes.
  5. Seasoning:

    • Place the dried potato pieces in a large bowl.
    • Drizzle olive oil or melted butter over the potatoes, ensuring they are evenly coated. Use enough oil or butter to lightly coat each piece but not so much that they become greasy.
    • Season generously with salt and pepper. You can also add other seasonings like garlic powder, paprika, or herbs for extra flavor.
  6. Roasting:

    • Arrange the seasoned potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure there is some space between each piece to allow for even cooking and browning.
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your potato pieces. Check and flip the potatoes halfway through the cooking time to ensure they brown evenly on all sides.
  7. Check for Doneness:

    • To check if the potatoes are done, pierce them with a fork or knife. They should be tender on the inside and golden brown and crispy on the outside.
  8. Serve Hot:

    • Once the potatoes are roasted to perfection, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your delicious, crispy roasted potatoes as a side dish or snack!

By following these steps and adjusting the seasoning and cooking time to your taste preferences, you can roast the most perfect potatoes every time!
