Multi Seed Flat Bread ~ Gluten and Dairy Free
And Mama’s Hummus

hummus 2

My friends and I have been on a hummus kick.  Nearly every time we see each other someone has made hummus.  The recipe was passed on from a friend, to a friend, to a friend, to a friend.  Some of them have secret ingredients, some of them add less garlic (not me) and some add more or less oil and lemon juice.  We all seem to have our way of making it.  Nonetheless, it is delicious and healthy!  Hummus is great served with chips, crackers, veggies and pita bread.   

Being that Pita Bread is one of my favorite breads for dip I decided to create a gluten free version.   I also have been trying to add more omega-3’s into my diet, hence the Multi-Seed bread name.  This bread is delicious, easy to make and has a great texture. Make a big batch of the hummus at the beginning of the week and put out on the counter with veggies as a great afternoon snack.  It will not only fill up the bellies, but is a healthy option.  The Flat Bread takes just a few minutes to throw together and stays fresh in a ziploc bag for about 4 days.  Cut it into wedges and serve with your favorite dip.  cut it in half and make a sandwich or make a pizza.  Another thing my daughters and I do it just eat it plain fresh out of the oven. My recipe for the hummus is fulI of garlic flavor.  If you are not a big garlic fan just use 2 garlic cloves.  I hope you enjoy it!
