Gluten free buckwheat pita bread
Delicious pita bread recipe made with only three simple ingredients.
Healthy, gluten free and really easy to make!!
If you ever had food from the middle east you already ate pita. When freshly made, still hot, dipped into hummus, tzatziki or babaganoush ( tahini and eggplant dip) is addictive.
Store bought ones are full of additives and preservatives, definitely to avoid but also when freshly made, the original recipe contains wheat flour, mostly refined. If you have a gluten intolerance, you are celiac or want to avoid gluten for any reasons this pita recipe is perfect for you because made only with whole foods, using buckwheat that is naturally gluten free and highly nutritious.
Also in some places they make the pita dough with yogurt or milk and many times vegan are unaware of it, because it is "just bread".
This recipe is definitely vegan, it doesn't require many ingredients, it is easy to make and I am sure you are going to love it.
Makes about 7-8 pitas
250 gr of buckwheat flour
185 ml of warm water

1/2 tsp of aluminium free baking powder ( bicarbonate of soda; cream of tartar; rice flour)
1-2 tbs of olive oil for brushing the pita before cooking
Sift the flour and mix it with baking powder and salt.
