Bread Baking Babes - Tunisian Spicy Breads

This month our hosting Babe is my fellow Canadian Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. She picked a spicy bread for our spicy group - Tunisian Spicy Breads from from Savory Baking from the Mediterranean by Anissa Helou.

This is a quick, savory, fiery little bread made with semolina and filled with a spicy filling of onion, tomato, peppers and harissa. The dough, which requires very little rising time, is rolled out, cut into rounds and the filling is sandwiched between 2 pieces of dough.

Traditionally these breads are pan fried, but Natashya gave us the option to pan fry or bake them. Since I'm trying to cut back on fat, I baked mine.

Thanks Natashya for a great bread this month! Please visit her blog Living in the Kitchen with Puppies for the recipe.

If you'd like to bake along this month as a Bread Baking Buddy, you've got until May 24 to get your post to Natashya.

Please visit the other Babes, listed over on the right, to see what they thought of the bread.
