Whole wheat goodness:
I love spending time in the kitchen with my dad. These past few weeks I was lucky enough to go spend some quality time with my family down in Costa Rica, which for the most part consists of my dad and I cooking up a storm. While we were spending time in the kitchen, I decided to document some of the recipes we were working on, one of them being these delicious whole wheat pitas. Being the daughter of a chef, I grew up eating all sorts of different cuisines but always coming back to our middle-eastern roots. I believe these home made pitas were a pretty appropriate collaboration.
If you’ve never made bread before, it may seem a bit intimidating at first. In reality, it is very easy! I will however, admit it is very time consuming so plan ahead, be patient and await the fluffiest pitas you’ve ever had!
1 (1/4-ounce) packet active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups lukewarm water
1 cup high-gluten flour
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1.Mix the water, honey and yeast together and let sit until foamy.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together both flours and add 1/2 cup of the flour mixture into the yeast bowl. Cover and let stand in room temperature until double in size (about 1 hour).
3. Add remaining flour into yeast mixture and shape into a ball.
