- 1/2 tsp. (2.5ml) of dry oregano
- Pink himalayan salt or Fleur de sel and ground pepper
- Basil leaves (optional)
- In a small bowl, combine the flax seeds and 6 tbsp. of water. Set aside for about 10 minutes.
- In another bowl or in your measuring cup, combine the rest of the water and the dry yeast and leave aside for also 10 minutes.
- Combine the brown rice flour, the white rice flour, the oat flour, the arrowroot starch, the xanthan gum and the salt.
- Mix in the flax seed mix, the yeast and the vinegar for about 5 minutes.
- Oil two 8″ round pan. Split the batter it two and spread it evenly.
- Put it in a closed space with a cup of hot water for some humidity. I usually put it in the microwave.
- Let it rise for about 1 1/2 hrs – 2 hrs.
- Preheat your oven at 425º.
- Thinly slice your tomatoes and you shallots. Prepare a small bowl with the olive oil and pressed garlic cloves.
- Spread the garlic oil on each focaccias with a brush. I try not to press too hard. Put the tomatoes, the shallots, the oregano, the basil leaves then add some salt and pepper.

- When they are cooked, transfer them on a wired rack to cool down.
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
