Make this simple skillet bread recipe in 15 minutes, its nutritious, tastes good and is easy to prepare. 

My mom tells stories of the best bread she's ever tasted, and it came from MOTHER EARTH NEWS sometime in 1980. She says I helped my dad make it while she was studying when she was in school at the University of Houston. 

I think it was just called Skillet Bread, something like a pita or nan. Do you have this recipe?

Khajha, here is the recipe. The simple skillet bread recipe was called "Simple Bread" and ran in the MOTHER EARTH NEWS January 1980, Issue #61. The following is adapted from the original article written by Jerry Nelson.

Simple Bread is highly nutritious, good tasting, inexpensive and easy to prepare. Cooking it demands an average of only 15 minutes of labor a day.

I would think any flour might work as a substitute for soy flour. Some flours to experiment with: kamut, quinoa, and rice flours. “Bob’s Mill” has some of these as well as natural/organic stores.
