Sourdough Rosemary Flatbread

Sourdough Rosemary FlatbreadThis flat bread is so good!  It has the perfect combination of tartness from the sourdough, savory from the rosemary and saltiness from the sea salt.  It’s simple to make and you don’t have to worry about making pretty loaves.  This bread goes perfectly with any soup!


1/2 cup sourdough starter

2 cups lukewarm water

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped rosemary

2 tsp. salt

5-6 cups whole wheat flour

Combine the starter, water, oil and salt in mixer.  Add 5 cups flour, then continue adding more flour until the dough “cleans” the sides of the bowl.  Knead for 10 minutes.  Transfer the dough to a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow to rise for 6-10 hours.  (I usually do this at night and then make the bread in the morning).  Once the dough has risen, divide in half.  Prepare 2 jelly roll pans with Pam spray.  Pat one half of the dough into a rectangular shape inside the pan with your hands.

Press fingertips into the dough to make divets.  Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper onto the dough.   Let raise for an hour and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

  1. […] This soup is perfect for using all the extra fall squash from the garden!  And if you didn’t grow any this year, the stores have them on sale right now!  A friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I have made it in the fall ever since.  The flavor of this soup is savory/sweet with a little hint of heat from the chipotle seasoning.  Serve with Sourdough Rosemary Flat Bread […]
