Sweet potato flatbreads are perfect for sandwiches, serving with dips, mopping up a curry, making into gyros or however you love to eat flatbreads.

Easy to make
It’s really very simple to make sweet potato flatbreads.
First you will need some sweet potato purée. I like to make batches of this to keep in the freezer as it is brilliant for adding to sauces and recipes like pancakes, waffles and macaroni cheese.
Once you have your sweet potato purée you will need to mix it with flour to make a dough. Add a little water if needed and a pinch of salt if you want to.
The dough can be a little sticky when rolling out so do this on a lightly floured surface. Then cook each flatbread on a griddle pan or frying pan - you don’t need any oil. Wrap up in foil or a clean tea towel to keep warm while you cook the others.
They're so easy that you could even get your kids involved in making them. See more easy recipes for kids to cook.
