In this gluten-free flatbread recipe, it is the mascarpone cheese that accentuates the fresh asparagus and tomatoes. For an impressive appetizer make this super easy asparagus and tomato cheese flatbread. The bread is flavoured with sesame seeds and has a crispy texture on the outside and is soft on the inside. Finished with fresh asparagus and tomatoes cooked in a creamy cheese topping. I have added few thinly sliced fried onions for extra flavour and texture, but they are entirely optional. The recipe may seem complicated, but it takes only about 15 minutes of prep time

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white rice flour
  • 2 Tbsp. White sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. Potato flour (not starch)
