Piadina wrap! | 4 ingredients
Updated: May 19
Hi guys! Here we go for another great italian recipe I've been making for years. I mean, it. YEARS.
I am talking about "the piadina" (Piadinas for plural).
It looks like a wrap, but it's not really as wraps usually are rolled over like a tube, instead piadinas are just folded in two, more like a omelette. Of course it's nothing to do with eggs ;)
The original recipe involves the use of lard in the dough, to make it soft and so that it does not break when cooked. My vegan version instead includes extra virigin olive oil, not that much, just the right amount so that each piadina is elastic enough not to become too crunchy as it would break. I assure you that your piadina will remain soft, delicious, without breaking and full of the typical wonderful taste of the homemade things. Everyone likes piadinas, especially children who can have fun with their parents to knead them, it is therefore a nice way to prepare dinner all together and to stuff them each on their own taste.
For 4 piadinas:
300 gr / 2½ cups kamut flour (all-purpose will work fine as well)
150ml / ⅔ cup water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 abundant pinch of salt
LET'S DO IT
Mix in a bowl all the ingredients together until you get a fairly hard and consistent dough ball. Do not be frightened if it seems hard because it must be so otherwise it will not cook well inside.
Roll it out witha a rolling pin up to a thickness of 2mm.
Heat a non-stick pan on the fire, and place your piadina on it. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes on medium heat, then check if the classic brown circles have formed, that means you can turn it on the other side for another minute.
And just like that, your piadinas are ready!
I like to stuff every piadina directly on the fire, so it will stay hot when I go to serve it. But you can also cook them all, put them all on the stack and bring them to the table with all the condiments and each diner will fill it at his will.
In the photo you can see my piadina as I like it: salad, tomatoes, my hummus, grilled courgettes and falafel.
Great idea for an appetizing dinner.
