Sweet Potato Flatbread

by Michelle L. Dauberman

I don’t know about you but I love a good carb.  Especially those that come in the form of warm breads and sweet potatoes.  So what would you say to me if I told you that you could combine the two into a tasty flat bread and that you make some at home.  Yum, right.  So here’s the skinny.

To make sweet potato flatbread you will need:
2 Tbsp of oil
1 c of all-purpose flour + ¼ cup of flour for rolling out the flatbreads
1 c of mashed sweet potato
½ tsp of salt

Making this flat bread is just as simple as the ingredients:
1.  Cook/boil 1 c of sweet potatoes.
2.  Mix 1 c of flour, 1 c of mashed sweet potato and ½ tsp of salt.  Knead until it forms a smooth dough.  Your dough may be a bit sticky so dust it with a little flower as needed.
3.  Dust a flat surface with flower.
4.  Place the dough on your flat surface and divide it into 6 equal pieces.
5.  Roll out each piece into a thin circle.
6.  Heat 1 tsp of oil, at medium heat, in a pan.
7.  Cook/heat the first side until golden brown and flip to cook/heat the second side.
8.  Serve warm and enjoy!
