3 Ingredient Flat Breads

3 Ingredient Flat Breads

How delicious is this! I've posted these before but I thought it was so fitting for people at home who are struggling to find pita breads, pizza bases etc. These are so easy to make and are perfect for getting the kids involved and having a little fun in the kitchen! Makes 4 - 6  Small FlatbreadsIngredients: 2 cups Self raising flour (more for dusting)1 1/2 cups Natural Greek yogurt1 Tbsp. Extra virgin Olive Oil Extra flavours that you may want (you'll only need a pinch of these): Pinch of saltDried rosemaryFresh garlic Chilli flakes Dried oregano CuminDirections:  In a small mixing bowl, add yoghurt, olive oil and self-raising and mix. This might seem like a sticky consistency, but this is okay! Dust a bench top with more SR flour and knead the dough until it forms a ball. If It's still sticky, add more flour to the bench. Split the dough into 4 -6 rolls. Each ball, knead a little and then begin to roll out with a rolling pin until half a centimeter in thickness. Heat a small splash of olive oil on a small pan over medium heat. Transfer the flat bread into the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until lightly brown and then flip and cook on the other side.

Peruvian Inspired Beef Stir Fry

Peruvian Inspired Beef Stir Fry

Hey Guys! I LOVE sharing recipes (of course, It's my job haha!) but I especially love sharing recipes from my community. This recipe was created by our incredible BARE ambassador Angela Martin (Instagram @the_healthy_diary_) who is a Meal prep QUEEN!  Serves: 1Cook time: 5 - 10 minutes Prep time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 100g lean beef strips 60g spaghetti, raw weight 1 medium tomato, sliced and seeds removed ½ small onion, sliced 1 garlic clove, finely diced 1 tbs of soy sauce 1 tsp of oyster sauce 1 tsp of sesame seed oil (or olive oil if you don't have!)  Fresh coriander, to your liking and chopped finely Salt & pepperDirections:  Cook the spaghetti according to packet instructions (make sure they are al dente!). Once cooked, drain the pasta and let cool down. In a large non-stick pan or wok, add sesame oil and heat on a medium to high heat for about one minute. Add beef strips and cook until seared on each side. Remove and set aside. In the same pan/wok, add garlic and onion and cook until the onion becomes translucent. Stir constantly, ensuring the garlic does not burn! Add the tomato and cook for about 1 minute or until it becomes soft, but still with a slight crunch! Bring the beef strips back to the pan, keep stirring. Now its time to add the pasta to the pan/wok and stir through. Add in the soy sauce and oyster sauce here and continue to stir and heat through.  Leave on the heat, stirring continuously to ensure the spaghetti really soaks up that beautiful flavor! Add some fresh coriander! Serve and top up with more coriander! Enjoy!
