Flatbreads make such a great quick lunch. You can throw together your favourite veggies and protein and add them to your flatbreads.

These harissa roasted sweet potato and butterbean flatbreads are a perfect balance of spicy, sweet, creamy, and crunchy.

Butterbean and sweet potato flatbread

These flatbreads are full of delicious plant-based protein.

We’ve added one of our favourite plant-based proteins to these wraps: butterbeans! They’re so versatile, which is why we love them so much. You can mash them with lemon and garlic, add them straight out of the can into salads, or fry them up with some herbs and serve them on toast. For this recipe, we’ve roasted them. Roasted butterbeans or cannellini beans are a great way of adding a tasty crunch to a dish. The insides stay lovely and soft and the outside goes nice and crunchy. If you’ve never had roasted butterbeans before, we think you’re going to love them! 

Tips to keep in mind when cooking this dish:

  1. If you’re short on time, you can use store-bought sweet potato fries instead of cutting them yourself. However, homemade sweet potato fries taste much better and are easy to make.
  2. When roasting the sweet potato fries and butterbeans, make sure they are spread out evenly on the baking tray to ensure even cooking.
  3. To add more depth to the flavour, you can sprinkle za’atar over the top of the flatbreads before baking.
  4. If you prefer a milder taste, reduce the amount of harissa paste.
  5. For a twist on the recipe, you can add some sliced avocado to the dish or swap out the flatbread for pita bread or tortilla wrap.
