Oat Crisp


This flatbread is extraordinarily straightforward to fluctuate. Beyond the toppings, I like so as to add in a handful or herbs or toasted spices. You may additionally add a little bit of sweetener however I’ve discovered the flavour of oats to be candy sufficient.

Legumes: Add your favourite cooked legumes to the salad. I like tossing in chickpeas or cooked black lentils.

Greens: Arugula shouldn’t be a love for everybody however you might simply swap in lettuce, spinach, or kale.

Vegetables: Roasted summer time squash, roasted winter squash, or grilled asparagus are all good additions, relying on the season. Play round with the greens within the salad- it’s onerous to go fallacious!
