Injera


Don’t let them name throw you. Injera is the best kept gluten free secret. It is a yeast risen flat bread made normally made from teff flour. It is very common in Ethiopian food but its versatility could be a game changer to anyone trying to eat wheat free. It can be used as a wrap for anything sweet or savory. Or use it to dip into sauce of anykind.

Normally people use teff flour for the recipe. I used buckwheat because it cheaper and easer to find. It is also one of the flours that is super healthy and packed with protein. Don’t let the name fool you, buckwheat is gluten free.

Ingredients –

1/3 LB Buckwheat flour (About 1 1/2 Cups)

1/2 tsp Yeast

1 1/2 Cup Warm Water

Seasoning (I used onion powder, garlic powder, paprika powder and salt but you can really use your imagination on this one)

Start by mixing yeast and water in a large bowl. Mix until yeast is dissolved. Then add flour and mix well. Your looking for a thick pancake batter consistency. Now cover well and allow to sit for 45 minutes to an hour.

Once it has sat add any seasoning you want. Now you may need to add a little more water in order for my mixture to be think enough to spread or pour. Pre-heat the over to 400 degrees. Spray a large backing dish well. Now pour or spoon two a very thin round flat breads on the sheet. The round should be 5-6 inches across. Bake for about 2 minutes. Remove from over and gently place each one a cooling rack. Now repeat the whole think until you use all the batter. Make sure to spray the pan well each time to make sure they don’t stick. To serve, roll each wrap and place on a plate.
