(makes 16 servings)

Weight Loss Recipes : Rosemary and Parmesan LavaschIngredients for recipe:

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3¼ cup unbleached flour
  • 2½ tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese*


  • In a small bowl, add water and sugar until dissolved then sprinkle yeast on top. Let stand for 10 minutes to activate yeast then add vegetable oil.
  • In a food processor, add flour and salt and mix well. Slowly add yeast mixture and continue mixing until dough forms a ball while scraping sides with a spatula.
  • If you don't have a food processor, use a wooden spoon to mix by hand and add yeast mixture a little at a time to evenly combine. Add more flour as needed if dough is too sticky or water if too dry.
  • Turn dough out on a floured work surface and knead dough by hand until it is smooth. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and allow to rest in the refrigerator until it rises to nearly double its size (about 1 hour.)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, combine rosemary and Parmesan cheese.
  • Turn dough out on a floured work surface and roll out until it is the shape of a rectangle. Cut dough into roughly 16 equal portions. When working with one portion of dough, place the others in a bowl covered with plastic wrap to prevent from drying out.
  • Take a portion of dough and roll until paper thin (should resemble a very flat rectangle or strip). Using a spatula, lift the dough strip and place it on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
  • Evenly sprinkle with rosemary and Parmesan cheese over the tops of the dough strips and lightly press into the dough.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, then cool on wire racks.
*Other suggested topping combinations of your choice:
  • fresh chopped rosemary
  • pine nuts
  • crushed garlic
  • cumin
  • red pepper flakes
  • curry powder
  • sunflower seeds
  • etc
