Cooking instructions

For the flatbread:

  1. Put the flour into a mixing bowl, then sprinkle the yeast on one side and the salt on the other. Cover each with a little flour. Make a well in the middle and add the warm water and oil. Mix well with a table knife to make a craggy dough, then transfer to a clean work surface and knead until smooth. This will take about 8–10 minutes. (You can make the dough using a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, if you prefer).
  2. Brush the surface of the dough with a little olive oil and place in an oiled clean bowl. Cover with cling film and leave to rise at (warm) room temperature for 45 minutes, until puffed up a little and almost doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/Gas 7. Grease a large baking tray and set aside.
  4. Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and roll out on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle or 16cm circle, about 3–5mm thick. Prick the flatbreads all over with a fork, then transfer to the prepared baking tray and bake 3-4 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.

For the fennel purée:

  1. Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan and add the sliced fennel and fennel seeds. Sweat until very soft.
  2. Blend the cooked fennel with crème fraiche until smooth. 
  3. For the pickled red onion:
  4. Bring the red wine vinegar and olive oil to the boil.
  5. Pour over the red onions and allow them to absorb the vinegar for 15 minutes.
