Posted by Peggy on January 9, 2016

A Wintry Beach Fire Cook-out
Recipe: Alice Water's-inspired Grilled Flatbreads


  • 2 cups rye flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (plus more as needed)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir in the water and olive oil and knead to form a moist dough. Cover with a clean cloth and let rest 30 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into 16 balls. Roll out on a lightly floured work surface until they are a 6X3-inch oval.
  3.  Carefully lay flatbreads atop a grill over an open fire* and cook 1-3 minutes, depending upon heat of flame, or until lightly charred on the bottom. With a spatula, flip breads and drizzle tops with olive oil. Cook until the bottom side is lightly charred and serve.

Number of servings (yield): 16 flatbreads

* Dried ash wood was used for the fire. Let the wood burn down a bit into coals before cooking and grilling.
