“Gluten-free Spinach Flatbreads” a recipe I have been wanting to share for a long time! 

From the past few months, I have been trying to stick to Vegan and gluten-free diet, and that has led me to try out a lot of new recipes using different ingredients, flours and flavours. I make bhakris made of sorghum flour, but often they are hard to make due to the quality of the sorghum flour. I wanted to make these flatbreads with amaranth flour, and after trying a few combinations, I settled for this one. 

These Gluten-free Spinach Flatbreads are vegan, soft, full of goodness and that green colour is just beautiful!

You can use eat them as parathas, tortillas or even as tortilla pizzas. I served these flatbreads with my Two Pepper Chicken for my husband, which he loved and I had it like a tofu taco with spicy sauce, it was delicious. There is a lot you can do with them, I crisped them and used it for our dips and used the leftovers for my Kottu Roti, a delicious Sri Lankan dish. 

For these Gluten-free Spinach Flatbreads, I used three different flours with a xanthan gum which acts as a binder in gluten-free recipes and makes the rolling the flatbreads easy. I can make these Gluten-free Spinach Flatbreads without xanthan gum, but I wanted this recipe to be easy for everyone. 

So this how you make these Gluten-free Spinach Flatbreads!
