This is inspired by a flatbread that's common around south-western Germany and in Alsace, called Flammkuchen or tarte flambée in French. Traditionally it's topped with cream, onions and speck. But of course it's great with many other toppings too, such as in this vegan version, which features beetroot, potatoes, fresh basil pesto and a delicious cashew-garlic cream. The dough needs no yeast, just water and flour and a little oil. If you'd like to make this gluten-free, just replace the spelt with chickpea flour and bake it a few minutes longer.
All of my favorite recipes are usually seasonal, organic and relatively effortless to make. Tasty and nourishing, simple but full of flavor, that’s what I have in mind. Hope you like them too!
