We’re going to get baked AND grilled today. I use sprouted spelt flour as my all-purpose flour at home for the most part. This recipe for easy grilled spelt flatbreads is one I turn to often–mostly within the context of pizza though. I only do the homemade pizza thing when it’s warm enough to grill (and since I’m Canadian, “warm enough” is anything above zero). My opinion is that VERY high cooking temperatures are necessary for good pizza and I feel a lot better about pushing my BBQ to 600° than my oven. Since this isn’t a pizza blog (tears), I thought I’d show off the simple goodness of this go-to dough as a flatbread today….
Nothing quite beats the taste and smell of a freshly baked loaf of bread. In this case, a seeded millet sandwich bread–a perfect fit for the list of “things you make on the weekend to enjoy for the rest of the week”.
Vegan cinnamon buns with dark chocolate and figs just sounds like fall, right? The season was on my mind in a heavy way when I was working on this recipe. All those notions of nesting and cranking the oven at every opportunity. The arrival of ripe figs marks the beginning of the end as far as summer’s concerned. There’s the juicy sweetness that speaks to sunny days. But that underlying deep, wine-y note really gets me excited for the cozy months ahead….
