We were so inspired by the vegetable flatbreads made by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl of, we decided to create our own hearty, seed- and nut-packed version. The gluten-free slices are perfect for sandwiches. Try topping them with a flavorful aioli, lean turkey, and sliced red, green, or yellow peppers, for even more color. Loaded with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and carrots, these flatbreads are everything we love about fall. Your food processor will be your best friend for this recipe. Using it makes the recipe come together quickly. Serve the sliced bread warm or at room temperature.
