Now that the weather is well and truly cooling down (noooooo!), it's time to start whipping up batch after batch after batch of yummy, winter warming soups. And the best thing you can possibly eat with soup is bread. Now is not the time to be worrying about carbs. Nope, now is the time to enjoy the deliciousness that carb-filled bread products bring!
You may have noticed that Lauren and I are both a little bit fond of bread in the Thermomix. If you haven't already checked out our bread-y recipes, get on it! They're so yum:
Yep, I told you we like bread.
Anyway, today I'm going to share a quick and easy recipe for a Turkish Pide. I like to make these and use one to dip into soup and keep the other to smother in hummus. OMG yum! Ooh speaking of hummus... stay tuned for a super easy hummus recipe coming to ThermoBliss very, very soon (and by soon I mean, when I have time to type it up!).
So, if you love bread too (yay!), make sure you give this Turkish Pide a go. Your big bowl of soup will thank you for it.

I think my oven my have been too high. They browned so much but still a bit doughy - didn’t stop us eating it 🤣
I had to add a little extra flour but it turned out perfectly and the family begged for more. Great result!

Mine is in oven now, how long will it take to cook? It looks good, also made bubaganosh as I had an abundance of Japanese egg plants, so can’t wait!
Hi Joy, as all ovens are different (and it depends on the size of your pide) just cook until they're golden brown and sound hollow!
Just to anyone else reading this. I made a batch this morning using the Lighthouse Bread and Cake flour. Followed instructions and it turned out perfectly. So perfectly, we wanted more. This afternoon’s batch used Laucke bread mix flour. Cake mixture texture resulted. Disclaimer: it could certainly be operator error!!!

Great to know!! Thank you!!! xx
I decided to make these today. I needed a little more flour as the dough was sticky and devided it into four. Turned out excellent thankyou ?
Perfect doh ! Cant wait to get it in th oven 🙂
Umm.... mine turned out like cake batter! What did I do wrong? There is no way I could tip it onto a floured board.... it is liquid!
That's so strange! I would simply add in a little more flour. Not sure what went wrong there - I've been using this recipe for ages and have never found that. Although the mixture will be a little sticky. 🙂
