    For an easy appetizer or light meat-free meal, give this smoky, sweet, and savory flatbread a try. It tastes great as a starter for any backyard barbecue fare, but works just as well all by itself. Use Golden Delicious apples or another firm, slightly tart variety.

    This nutty, peppery answer to flatbread uses chickpea flour instead of wheat, so it works well for gluten-free meals. You can often find it on menus in Argentina and Uruguay as both an appetizer and a main dish. Topped with chorizo and blue cheese, this recipe is hearty enough for a whole meal.
