Darwin Y3 celebrated an Egyptian day after spending time learning about Ancient Egypt in class. Ms P made flat bread on an open fire as well as a delicious butterbean spread, as the Egyptian's would have done many centuries ago. Everybody had a taste and finished the meal off with dried fruits. In class, we made our own papyrus paper, built 3-D pyramids and did some Egyptian dancing. A fabulous and educational day was had by all.
Ms P's Ancient Egyptian Butter Bean and Flat Bread recipe:
Mashed butter beans
A little garlic
A splash of olive oil
A pinch of Salt
A pinch Cumin
Mix all the ingredients together and use as a spread
For the flatbread:
Flour x2 cups
Milk 3/4 cup
Place the formed breads into a pan over an open fire - Once slightly browned on both sides, spread on the butter bean mixture - delicious!
