Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the flatbread topping ingredients

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL].
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 1-inch-thick strips, the strips crosswise into ½-inch-thick pieces.
  • Divide the sumac into two equal portions, one for the mushroom-eggplant topping and one for garnish.

2

Cook the mushrooms and eggplant

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms, eggplant, ½ cup [¾ cup] water, and half the sumac and season generously with salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat. Using a masher, fork, or the back of a spoon, coarsely mash.
While the mushrooms and eggplant cook, prepare the cucumber salad.

3

Make the cucumber salad

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber into quarters lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Juice half the lemon; cut the remaining half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut the remaining lemon into wedges.]
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems. Set aside half for garnish and coarsely chop the remaining leaves.
  • Set aside a few cilantro sprigs for garnish; coarsely chop the remaining cilantro.
  • If using the fresh chile, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; finely chop the chile. Wash your hands after handling.
In a large bowl, toss together the onion, cucumber, tomatoes, lemon juice, chopped mint, chopped cilantro, 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil, and as much fresh chile as you like; season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Assemble and bake the flatbreads

On a sheet pan, place the flatbreads side by side. Brush the tops lightly with 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 3 tsp] oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the mushroom-eggplant topping evenly over the flatbreads, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges. Bake until the edges are lightly browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

Serve

Transfer the flatbreads to individual plates and spoon on the cucumber salad. Garnish with the remaining mint leaves and cilantro sprigs, sprinkle with the remaining sumac, and serve with the lemon wedges.
