{wholegrain sundays}

'whole grain sundays', a weekly meme to show you all how we are trying to incorporate a multitude of whole grains into our daily lives. It's easy to get stuck in the the oatmeal/bread roll/potato mindset when it comes to providing your family with their daily carbohydrates. Each Sunday we will share a different recipe we have been enjoying while reaping the benefits of a variety of ancient and wholegrains.

Join us if you'd like to. Leave a link to your weekly grains in the comments section below.

wholewheat (or spelt or rye) chapati

today’s breakfast:

avocado with sesame seeds

tomato from the garden

wholewheat chapati with

miso paste (a healthy alternative to vegemite)

2 cups of flour - your choice

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbs sunflower oil

3/4 cup warm water

Mix the flour and salt together

Add half of the water and the oil

Start to knead

Add the rest of the water

Knead for 4-5 minutes until smooth

Let it sit, covered for 20 minutes

Take a golf ball size and roll out into very thin pancake discs

Put a bit of butter or nuttelex onto a hot pan

Put the disc onto pan, when it starts to bubble flip it over and cook the other side (about 45-60 secs each side)

Makes about 8 small chapati

This looks very good. I am participating in Hanna's 10 day cleanse over at Hannah's Harvest. We will be trying more whole grains, beans, protein-based breakfasts. Thanks for sharing!

We just made these! They are delicious. I had to use two cups of flour, though, not one. One was like pancake batter. I posted a picture and my adjustments on my blog (with credit to your recipe of course!) Thank you so much for sharing!

I will definitely try these. I love tortillas (that's what they look like to me, but they call them piadine in Italy) and I have never made them myself. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the recipe. That plate looks delicious! Never had miso paste plain or vegemite.. I'd probably be eating that with hummus.
