Green Flatbread (AIP-friendly, low-FODMAP)


This flatbread is sandwich-errific!

Yield: 8 large pieces

  • 2 large or 3 small bunches chard
  • 1 green plantain
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

Preheat oven to 300.

Chop chard stems & sauté in bacon fat or coconut oil. Add chopped greens and continue to cook until wilted.

To peel a plantain, score along the length of the peel with a sharp knife and remove the peel in strips.

Combine cooked chard, plantain, melted coconut oil & salt in food processor until it forms a thick green batter. The greener the plantain, the longer this will take. Scrape down the food processor bowl once or twice, as bread

Pour onto a parchment lined baking sheet (mine is 12”x16”), and spread to a uniform thickness. If it gets too thin, it will pull apart. A little thicker than that.

Bake for 50 minutes.

Cool and slice into 8 large pieces, or as you like.

Recipe Notessausage

  • Freezes great! Cut the parchment paper you used for baking into sheets slightly larger than your flatbread & sandwich between slices so you can separate them when frozen.
  • Put a slice in the toaster to reheat if it’s been cold or frozen. It doesn’t get crisp, just warm & floppy. Floppy is better for wrapping around stuff!

*FODMAPs: There is a lot of contradictory information about low-FODMAP foods. All of the ingredients in this recipe is listed as low-FODMAP by reliable sources.

  1. Two things – we grew up with ‘silver beet’ in New Zealand. And, I’m trying to hunt down plantains in Sydney. They are evasive little suckers in this neck of the woods – this recipe looks fantastic.

    • Over here in Canada I’ve had less luck finding plantains in health-food oriented grocery stores & more luck in the large mainstream chains. Good luck in your quest… plantains are fun to play around with!

  9. Anyone try this in a Vitamix? Took a long time in my food processor to get it to the right consistency. And I wanted to make a double batch, but could only fit one batch at a time in my processor.
