I hope you are all well and looking forward to a bit of very easy bread making..The Italians are famous for their healthy diets and lifestyles.

the Italian flag.

as you will see from this food pyramid olive oil and olives plays a very big role in the diet. Both of these ingredients are in the bread I am going to show you how to make today.

you will need 2 cups of plain flour/1 cup of buttermilk or plain yogurt pinch of salt ,pinch thyme and a teaspoon of bread soda
fill the cup right up to the top to measure
place all the dry ingredients in a bowl
pour in the buttermilk
mix until it all comes together in a dough
knead lightly
spread out on a baking tray with the back of a floured hand. Drizzle with olive oil
thinly slice half a red onion.
Arrange the onions and olives,pressing down can sprinkle a little course sea salt on top if you have it…bake @180 degrees for 15/20 mins
when cooked drizzle again with olive oil.

this bread is a savoury dish.It can be enjoyed with a nice salad or on its own. I hope you enjoy making it and eating it. Ohhh if you dont like olives (which I dont) or onions you can leave them off. I hope the QQI students will have a go at this.As the module we are working on is generally around the use of vegetables , this is another good example of the use of your lovely fresh vegetables.
