This Quick Jamie Oliver Flatbread Only Uses 2 Ingredients

When you've invited people over for dinner — or even when you're just looking to feed yourself — it can be easy to get overwhelmed by both the time and the number of ingredients required to get a meal on the table. In today's world of back-to-back Zoom meetings and long working hours, quick and easy recipes are where it's at for the majority of us that just can't seem to find enough hours in the day to plan meals, make it to the store to shop, and cook.

For years, we've loved celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's colorful and flavor-packed recipes, which tend to be approachable even for the inexperienced cook. And when it comes to fast and easy meals, Oliver is no slouch, he's even got a cookbook called 5 Ingredients: Quick and Easy Food. But what if you've only got two ingredients on hand? Oliver has a solution for that, too. He recently tweeted a friendly reminder about his easy flatbreads, writing, "Just self-raising flour and natural yoghurt will give you the quickest flatbread EVER." In the mood for bread? Let's take a look at how to make them.

Jamie Oliver's two-ingredient flatbreads

On his website, Oliver spells out just how to make these simple flatbreads. It seems that technically, they actually call for three ingredients: self-rising flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, and 350 grams, or about a cup, of plain yogurt. We'll let it slide this time, Jamie.

To bring it all together, you mix the flour, baking powder, and yogurt in a bowl, stirring lightly to combine (via Jamie Oliver). Then, you tip the mess out onto a flour-dusted work surface, kneading for a minute or so until the dough comes together. Then, it goes into a flour-dusted bowl where it sits for a few minutes as you heat your grill or grill pan. When ready to cook the flatbreads, you divide the dough into 12 equal portions, use a rolling pin to roll them out on a flour-dusted surface, and score them with a knife before grilling them for about two minutes on each side. Bam! You've got hot, fresh bread.

If you've got a few extra ingredients lying around, Oliver recommends brushing each hot flatbread with a simple herbed garlic butter. Or, you can bust out the big guns and whip up a simple three-ingredient pumpkin hummus or easy baba ganoush. Now you're ready to feed a crowd — or just stuff your own hungry belly.
