No South American barbecue is complete without bread. These flatbreads have the consistency of pizza dough. They are extremely easy to make and the garlic and rosemary oil infuses a wonderful flavour when the dough is grilled.

Flat bread

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons active dried yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil

Garlic and rosemary oil

Quantity Ingredient
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 small handful rosemary leaves

Method

  1. To make the flat bread, put the flour, salt, yeast, oil and 11⁄3 cups warm water into an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Mix on low–medium speed for 5 minutes, or until the mixture comes together to form a smooth elastic dough. Alternatively, knead the dough by hand for 10–15 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean tea towel and set in a warm place to prove for 1–1½ hours, or until doubled in size.
  2. Knock back the dough, using your fists to punch out all the air. Shape into four even-sized balls and flatten slightly. Place on lightly oiled baking trays, cover with a clean tea towel and set in a warm place to prove for a further 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  3. Preheat a gas or charcoal barbecue to medium–high. To make the garlic and rosemary oil, put all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir well to combine.
  4. Flatten the dough out to 1 cm thick discs. Brush the top of each disc with the garlic and rosemary oil and grill, oil side down, for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush the remaining side with oil, turn and cook for a further 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Cut into wedges and serve the flat bread hot or cold.
