  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or your flour of choice
  • sea salt to taste
  • chives rosemary, scallions (optional)


  • In a large bowl combine the flour and mashed potatoes until a nice dough forms that is easy to handle. Depending on how wet your mashed potatoes were you might need to sprinkle a little extra flour in there.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on your kitchen counter and place the dough on top. Use the palm of your hands to roll it out into a long log. Use a serrated knife to cut the log into 14-16 pieces depending on how small you like to make your flatbreads.
  • Sprinkle some more flour on each individual piece of dough and use the palm of you hand to flatten it. At this point use a rolling pin to roll them out as thin as you like without tearing them.
  • Meanwhile preheat a seasoned cast iron skillet or griddle on medium-low heat and cook the flatbread for a couple of minutes or so on each side until done to your liking. We prefer little charred spots on ours for crunch and a little smokiness.
  • Transfer the cooked flatbreads to a tea towel lined plate and wrap them nicely to keep warm and soft. Serve with your favorite soups as stews, make tacos, wraps, burritos etc...

Flatbread Variations:
  • Add one teaspoon baking powder to the dough + 1/3 cup sliced scallions for a savory scallion pancake. Might wanna cook this version in a little olive oil or plant based butter.
  • One chopped up caramelized leek mixed into the dough is so next level.
  • Add one teaspoon garlic powder or a sprinkling of sesame or hemp seeds into the mix.
How to Keep them Soft:
  • Line a plate with a tea towel and pile up your flatbreads as you cook them. Wrap in the towel to keep warm and soft.
