Directions
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Tip the flours, salt and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl and stir.
Make a well in the centre and pour in the yogurt, mixing quickly to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly after adding the oil. You may add little milk, should it appear too dry.
Now shape it into a round and flatten the dough slightly before placing on a lightly floured baking sheet.
Lightly cut an X into the top of the bread with a serrated knife and bake for about 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
Transfer to a wire rack, cover with a clean tea towel to keep the crust soft, and leave to cool.
Serve warm with Greek Lentil Soup.
Serves 6
