Grilled Sourdough Flatbread

It may be too hot to bake, but it’s not too hot to enjoy sourdough bread. The answer – grilled sourdough flatbread. This recipe is almost too easy. The key is to start with a very active, bubbly sourdough starter. It doesn’t hurt to have someone else do the actual grilling too. My husband is the grilling cook here, and he happily took on this project.

Make Your Own Sourdough Starter

Make your own sourdough starter by using the method I prefer, found on my website Make Your Own Sourdough Starter. Or follow the methods found in earlier Mother Earth News articles, including Creating Homemade Sourdough Bread From a Starter Mix, and a previous blog post, A Beginner’s Guide to Sourdough. It’s hard to completely fail with sourdough, so use the method that appeals most to you.

• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 1/2  cups white whole-wheat flour
