This dairy-free recipe is easy and quick to make for after-school snacks, appetizers or as a side dish to a heary chili or soup. Feel free to add any spices that you like or dress up the dough by adding some sauteed onions or fresh herbs.

Makes 4 8" flatbreads

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1 ½ t. salt
  • ½ t. garlic powder
  • 2 T. cold dairy-free vegetable shortening or soy margarine
  • 1 T. tahini
  • 1 1/3 cup cold water


1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together the flour, nutritional yeast, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the shortening or margarine and tahini until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Using a wooden spoon, mixed in the water until forming a soft dough. (Do not over-mix.)

2. On a lightly floured work surface, divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll out each piece so that it is about 6-8 inches in diameter, and prick the surface of the dough with a fork.

2. Heat a lightly oiled heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, and cook one flat bread circle at a time, flipping when golden brown and cooking the opposite side until cooked through and golden. Transfer the flatbread to a covered plate while repeating with the remaining dough. Serve warm.

I cooked these last night with a big pot of dhal and they are brilliant! I added a some extra sesame seeds to the mix but otherwise kept it as it was. So cheesy! I'm amazed by the combination of tahini and nutritional yeast. Will definitely be making these again :)
