High Protein Flatbread with Vegetables

High Protein Flatbread with Vegetables

Are you in the look out for a high protein vegan meal? If your answer is yes then I'm about to throw you a curve ball here. 

Healthy pancakes for dinner!

It might seem none off those words go together but this High Protein Flatbread with Vegetables is pretty much that, a great alternative for regular pancakes that you can have for both lunch and dinner, and is super healthy since we are making the bread from chickpea flour and topping it off with a bunch of colourful veggies. 

To make our flatbread delicious and a lot lighter that regular bread, we are using chickpea flour and a bit of wheat flour. As vegans, chickpea flour is a great alternative we can resort to, it adds more protein to our meals, and chickpeas have so many benefits we can take advantage of. 

Chickpeas are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. You can add them to your diet for weight management, to boost heart health, to maintain good blood pressure, reduce inflammation, balance hormones, strengthen your bones, etc.

So many good reasons to use chickpea flour! And if you have a food dehydrator you can easily make your own. Just let them soak for a while, rinse them really well, put them in the dehydrator until you see there's no more moister, and put them in a food processor to make a fine powder. 

We always need greens and other colours on our plate, so we are topping our flatbread with carrots, seed sprouts and snap peas. We want the veggies to be slightly crunchy, to get this consistency we need to boil the snap peas and carrots for a few minutes and then fry with a tiny bit of oil, this will give a nice boost to the flavour and you'll get that extra crisp on them.  

Seed sprouts are a great addition to any meal, they carry the highest concentration and bioavailability of nutrients, they are better eaten raw since they loose a lot of their nutritional value when exposed to high temperatures. 

Whenever you throw a handful of seed sprout on your plate you are helping your digestion, boosting your metabolism, improving heart health, boosting your immune system, reducing allergy reaction, preventing anemia; the list is long, these are just very few of its benefits. 

As a final touch and to bring all the ingredients together we are drizzling the vegetables with a home made dressing. It's a very easy to make dressing made out of 3 ingredients: Dijon mustard, maple syrup and vegan mayonnaise; which is both creamy and light, making it perfect for this recipe. 

If you are making this recipe during the week, it's totally possible to take it with you so you can have a healthy well crafted meal even when you're at work or at school. You can easily pack this meal in a lunch box but make sure that you pack everything in its own container, otherwise you'll end up with a soggy mess.
