Sesame Lavosh

Lavosh is really handy, fun to make & so yummy & crunchy.
Also keeps really well...silly me, it won't last that long!
This recipe comes via Annabel Langbein.

1 cup plain flour 
1/3 cup wholemeal flour 
2 tbsp each black and white sesame seeds (or 4 tbsp just one kind) 
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried oregano 
1 tsp salt 
1/4 cup olive oil 
1 tsp sesame oil 
1/2 cup water 
To finish:  olive oil and flaky sea salt
Preheat oven to 165C/325F.  

In a mixing bowl stir together the flours, sesame seeds, oregano and salt. Mix the oils and water together and add to the dry ingredients, stirring to form a soft, pliable dough. 

Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll each out on a lightly floured board as thinly as possible. Each quarter should yield a rectangle of about 34 x 16cm (13 x 6 inches). Cut each rectangle into strips of about 4 x 17cm (1.5 x 6.5 inches) and roll again - they need to be virtually see-through. 

Carefully transfer the strips to a baking tray, brush them lightly with oil and sprinkle lightly with flaky salt. Bake until they are crisp and pale golden, about 15-18 minutes. Allow to cool fully before storing in an airtight container.

  1. Hi!
    I have just been browsing through some of your yummy looking recipes. Very inspiring and great photos too.

  2. Love the duo of sesame seeds in this recipe. Tip: Final rolling can be done on parchment paper. Then transfer parchment to the baking tray. Makes easy work of trying to transfer paper-thin dough to the baking tray. Very yummy with hummus.


Ooh you are so kind to leave a comment ♥
