sweet summertime indeed. when i think of fresh summer food, i think of pizza or flatbread topped with lots of fresh greens, basil, tomatoes, olives, avocado, mozzarella, arugula, and a balsamic glaze. well, that’s what i gave you with Vegan Summertime Chickpea Flatbread. you can have the easiest and tastiest dinner made in no time!
the flatbread is made with garbanzo or chickpea flour, and it’s a flour i really love using for savory actually! it bakes really well in my opinion.
here, i created a flatbread pizza if you will and it’s heavenly. you won’t even believe how fluffy the flatbread is!
the toppings though, that’s what really brings this recipe to life.
oh so those toppings, gosh where to start! let’s start with the vegan mozzarella only because it’s my favorite.
so there are a few options when it comes to vegan mozzarella at grocery stores but i’m always inclined to go with miyoko’s.
it’s sold at tons of grocery stores and the quality is always on point. plus, i do find it to be the most authentic and emulate the dairy counterpart well.
aaah isn’t that the smoothest batter ever!? it’s honestly a dream.
the smooth texture is all thanks to chickpea flour, it’s just divine. you will need some arrowroot powder, just two tbsp to really bind this together.
if you don’t have any, i think cornstarch or tapioca flour could be good subs!
also, you don’t bake any of the toppings, which you probably realized. the flatbread is baked by itself and then once it cools down, the toppings are added :).
let’s do a quick run down of everything you need for this recipe. as far as the toppings go, use whatever you like and any amounts you want!
just keep in mind this is NOT a flatbread that can be eaten like pizza, it’s too soft and the toppings are too heavy, so make sure ya grab a fork.
ingredients Vegan Summertime Chickpea Flatbread:
- garbanzo bean flour
- arrowroot powder
- baking powder
- apple cider vinegar
- onion salt
- garlic powder
- vegan sour cream
as for the toppings, i went with small tomatoes, fresh basil, vegan mozzarella, kalamata olives, arugula, avocado and a balsamic glaze.
you can make your own balsamic glaze if you want, which is pretty easy, but i just went with a store-bought organic one that i found at sprouts.
