Spelt Bread with tomato and cheese
Fast becoming a popular health food, Spelt is a variety of grain closely related to wheat but lower in gluten. Full of fibre and packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals it's a constant member of my shopping basket.
This recipe makes a lovely light and tasty bread that is a perfect middle of the table sharing flat bread.
