Grilled Moroccan Flatbread with Gremolata Hummus

Sometimes the craziness that is life gets the better of us, and we forget to take pause and relish in the little things in life that really make us smile, like waking up to the aroma of a freshly brewed coffee, or finding a new favorite song that you can’t help but dance to, or just celebrating small wins like having stayed awake through the very long and boring meetings at work.

What makes me smile is uncovering new recipes and new ways to bake up Immaculate goodies that lets me travel to a new, unexpected places without ever leaving my kitchen.

This grilled Moroccan flatbread would be the perfect example.

So if you need a break from whatever it is that’s weighing you down, hopefully this will make for a flavorful getaway!

You Will Need:

  • 2 cans Immaculate Baking Co. ® refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Gremolata and Hummus

  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted well-drained kalamata olives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 container (8 oz) plain hummus

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

  1. Heat closed medium-size contact grill as directed for sandwiches. Separate each can of dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. When grill is heated, place 2 rectangles on grill. Close grill; grill 2 to 4 minutes or until deep golden brown.*
  2. Brush each rectangle with 1/2 teaspoon oil; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon cumin and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. To keep warm, place uncovered on ungreased cookie sheet in 200°F oven while making remaining flatbreads. DSC06092

Vegetarian Breakfast Egg Cups

If you really thought about it, breakfast should totally be every person’s favorite meal of the day. First of all, you can technically eat as much as you can at breakfast, because if you front-load your calories, you at least have the rest of the day to burn them off. Well, of course, the hope is that you’re also front-loading a ton of nutrients and goodness, so that you’re getting the energy you need to get through the day. No wonder breakfast is the most important meal of the day – you get to do some serious chow down guilt-free 🙂 Those breakfast skippers are really missing out, especially when there are a ton of delicious variations, like this one: Vegetarian Breakfast Egg Cups.
