Roasted sweet pearl onions with balsamic, olive oil, and fresh basil leaves have found their perfect home with zucchini on top of homemade flatbread. Spread with goat cheese for a light lunch or delicious snack.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup gram flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp semolina
  • 1 tbsp olive oil + a few tbsp more
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • salt
  • water to knead the dough
  • 1 cup pearl onions or shallots
  • about 1 large zucchini cut into thin circle
  • a good glug of balsamic vinegar
  • sugar
  • black pepper
  • few cloves of garlic
  • goat cheese
  • few sprigs of fresh basil leaves
  • some pine nuts to sprinkle (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a big bowl add both flours & semolina, italian seasoning, salt and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Mix roughly using your fingers. Slowly add little water and start kneading. Knead till it comes together as a dough. Cover and let it rest for about 10 to 15 min.
  2. In the meantime, preheat the over to 375 F. In an ovenproof dish add onions, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, sugar, garlic and basil. Give it a rough mix and pop it in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or till the onions turn soft and caramelize.
  3. In a separate bowl add zucchini and season it with salt and pepper. Drizzle some olive oil and mix it to coat the zucchini evenly. Leave the zucchini to marinade for as long as the onions cook.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll out disks of about ¼ inch thickness.
  5. Cook the disks partially on a non stick pan on medium low heat.
  6. If you have a stove-top with a burner then cook the flatbread on the flame for about 30 seconds each side till you get some nice charred marks on it. Otherwise continue to cook on the pan till the flatbread is cooked through. You can even cook it on the BBQ grill.
  7. Let the flatbread cool almost completely before assembling the whole thing.
  8. Smear a generous amount of goat cheese on the flatbread.
  9. Place the marinated zucchini on the bread and spoon the onions onto the bread.
  10. Drizzle some liquid that you might have in the bowl in which your roasted the onions. Sprinkle some pine nuts and serve right away.
