Gluten-Free Flat Bread on the Grill

Too hot to bake in the kitchen? Try this hearty flatbread on the grill! Goes great with whatever else is cooking. And don’t forget — yeast is an important nutrient.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 ¼ cup fine white rice flour
  • ¼ cup millet flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon (1 packet) gluten-free yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large fresh egg
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce (flat)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • ¾ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp rosemary (optional)
  • olive oil to brush tops of bread

 

Equipment

 8 pieces of aluminum foil cut into 6 inch squares and brushed with olive oil.

Process

Yeast needs warmth to work, so heat oven to just below 100 degrees, turn off.  Meanwhile, wisk the brown rice flour, white rice flour, millet flour, and xanthan gum together in a medium bowl (flour mixture).  If flours are cold from being refrigerated, place in oven to warm.  Set cold egg in a small bowl of hot water to warm.

In a warmed mixing bowl, add water, yeast and honey.  Let stand 4 minutes to proof (if does not foam, yeast is too old).  Slowly beat in egg, oil, applesauce and flour mixture to thoroughly combine, about 3 minutes.  Let stand in bowl in oven for 20 minutes to raise.

Remove mixture from oven and fold in salt, (rosemary) and tapioca flour (mixed first).  Mixture should come together away from sides of the bowl.  Form into 8 palm-size very soft balls and place on aluminum squares.  If too sticky to form balls, add a teaspoon of white flour at a time.  If too dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time.  Flatten into disks ½ inch thick for foccacia type or 1/4 for crisper bread (shown in photo).  A silicon spatula makes it easiest to shape.

Brush tops with additional olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt (optional).  Let rise in the warmed oven for 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat the grill to 350 degrees F.  Arrange squares on the hot grill surface.  Cover with the lid and bake for about 6 minutes or until the bread has firmed.  Turn over and remove the foil.  Bake until browned on the outside, about 6 minutes more. 

Makes 8 breads.
