This simple, grain-free flatbread makes for a healthy and simple lunch when topped with hummus and whatever herbs and vegetables you have on hand. This makes an especially great paleo and vegan meal for when it’s too hot to use the oven, and your friends with special diets will absolutely love it!


  • 1⅓ c cassava flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp of sea salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ c plain coconut yogurt
  • ½ c warm filtered water
  • 1 c hummus for serving

Choose a few or all of the following toppings: fresh herbs, microgreens, hot sauce, sliced garden tomatoes, thinly slivered summer squash, olive oil, flaky sea salt, salsa verde, or tahini.


  1. Mix the cassava flour, baking soda, and seasoning in a large bowl, then add the yogurt and warm water. Mix until a thick dough forms (cassava flour can be a little finicky, so add more water or flour until it’s the same consistency as pizza dough).
  2. Roll dough into 6 equal-sized balls, then use a rolling pin to flatten the dough.
  3. Grill each flatbread on a hot pan coated with more olive or coconut oil, cooking for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  4. Top flatbread with a good spread of hummus, then add all the toppings you’d like.
