During the last two months, I’ve repeatedly asked myself how people with more than one child find the time to make dinner?! Because in spite of food being my work and my passion, I’m still finding it hard to get dinner on the table without a huge amount of scrambling and chaos.
What has saved me are these tips, and super easy recipes like this Five Minute Flatbread.
This quick meal is incredibly colorful, delicious, and really does come together in minutes – especially if you can shred & slice some of your favorite veggies ahead of time. It also makes an eye-catching appetizer for entertaining.
This “recipe” is very loose and can be customized to meet your family’s tastes or to utilize whatever veggies you have on-hand. Just make sure to include color and crunch!
- Store-bought flatbread, Naan, or thick pita bread
- Your favorite hummus (I like Sabra's Kalamata olive and Cilantro Jalapeño)
- Shredded carrots (rainbow if you can find them)
- Thinly sliced cucumbers
- Thinly sliced radishes
- Chopped green onions
- Feta cheese crumbles (optional)
- Toast or bake the flatbread (or whichever type of bread you're using) until it's slightly crunchy and stiff enough to hold toppings, like a cooked pizza dough would be.
- Liberally spread hummus all over the flatbread.
- Top the hummus with layers of the sliced and shredded veggies.
- Serve and enjoy!
