Recipe: Homemade Pita Bread

Hello everyone!dsc_0432.jpg

Who doesn’t love bread? I know we all feel like Oprah in that commercial, “I Love Bread. I. LOVE. BREAD!”

While we enjoy the carb-filled goodness, many of us don’t love making bread. It can be time consuming. It can be frustrating. But, my partner and I have been slowly been perfecting a recipe for our favorite kind of bread—pita bread!

Is it worth making pita at home? Absolutely. Store-bought pita is often several days old and simply doesn’t taste as good as hot out of the oven bread. Warm, toasty home-baked pita is worth the effort. It puffs up perfectly for ‘pocket pita’ sandwiches and pairs great with your favorite hummus.

This pita bread recipe produces a nutty,  rich flavor along with a light, airy consistency. Once you taste it, you won’t be buying pita bread at the store again. …  Okay, at least not when you have the time to make your own.

What are you waiting for? Give it a shot!

Cheers & happy cooking!

Hello everyone,thumb_IMG_1465_1024

I’m Italian, and I love pasta. However, I try to limit the amount of carbs I eat throughout the week so I tend to save some of my favorite Italian meals for special treats and holiday dinners. I usually make a hearty vegan lasagna for Christmas dinner, but this year I have been planning to make vegan stuffed shells.  Continue reading “A Vegan Holiday: Recipe Stuffed Shells”
