Ingredients for the best ever Turkish bread
Super simple staples here, which you already have in your pantry, no doubt. You don't need anything fancy as this is a nice and easy recipe for all bread lovers. You don't need any baking experience to make this either, which is ideal for everyone.
Flour - Use all-purpose flour to make this bread. You don't need any special flour. Just the basics you have in your kitchen cabinets. We recommend non-bleached flour though. We never work with bleached flour.
Dry yeast - You'll need one packet of dry yeast. All packets should be 7-8 grams. Basically, a standard little yeast packet is enough for this recipe.
Oat Milk - We recommend oat milk because it gives the Turkish bread a maltier taste, but you can use any plant-based milk for this recipe. It works with coconut, almonds, even soy milk. No need to take a trip to the shop, just the plant-based milk you have in the fridge.
Olive oil - You'll need a couple of tbsp of olive oil for this recipe and a little more to brush the Turkish bread once it's ready. We are adamant about using olive oil in all our recipes but if you have any other vegetable oil, you can also use that. It won't spoil this recipe, so no need to worry.
Salt - Sea salt is a must for this recipe. No Turkish bread tastes good without salt for sure.
Fresh Herbs - I like to use parsley and cilantro (coriander) for this recipe. They work best with the taste of Turkish Bread. Delicious!
Anything else? Optionally you can add chilli flakes if you want, but since my husband doesn't like spicy foods, I like to leave those out.
Tips for making the best Turkish bread
Even when you deal with such a simple recipe you want to make sure you are doing it right. I got you! There are a few tips for making the best ever Turkish bread without wasting ingredients.
Use warm water - Warm up the water before adding it to the flour. It always helps!
Use warm milk - Don't use fridge cold milk, use warm milk or at least room temperature oat milk.
Extra virgin olive oil - For the best taste, you'll want extra virgin olive oil. That's our recommendation! You can use Spanish, Greek or Italian extra virgin olive oil. They are all incredible for this recipe.
Use fresh herbs - Use fresh herbs for this Turkish bread. It will give it such a spectacular flavour profile. Trust me, you'll want the fresh stuff!
Sea Salt - Use sea salt when possible and not table salt. It's the best thing you can use for this Turkish bread.
Make sure it has a pocket - When cooking the Turkish bread on the pan, it should rise a little bit to form a pocket in the middle. You'll see the dough bubbling up. That's when you know you are doing it well!
