  • 3-4tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4tbsp yoghurt, kefir or lemon juice

Put the flatbread on the baking tray and repeat until you have 4 flatbreads, adding oil as needed. Top each flatbread with broccoli and walnuts, then add the Gorgonzola. Bake for 7-8 minutes until the cheese has melted and the broccoli and walnuts are beginning to brown.
