Rustic Asparagus & Feta Flatbread

I am on a flatbread kick!  They are so fun for so many types of meals.  For parties you can make several different types for variety and a finger food option.  For family dinners they are great for a make-your-own-flatbread night where everyone can add their own toppings.  Make a more exotic or interesting flatbread for a dinner for 2.  They are even great for a quick dinner for one.
I made flatbread most recently with my 2 daughters and they called it The Flatbread Challenge, where we each made our own creation and then taste-tested them all to vote for the winner.  Everyone voted for their own :).

This flatbread recipe combines 4 yummy vegetables that give different flavors and textures.  All can be roasted in the oven, which is super simple prep, but also is a great way to bring out deep flavors and sugars in the veggies.  You can change up the veggies too, for example replacing asparagus for zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower;  swapping the red pepper for  tomato.  On top, a small sprinkling of an intense-flavored cheese, such as Feta, goes a long way to add saltiness and creaminess to the party.  Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over top for the perfect finish and indulge knowing that you are eating something incredibly decadent, but also filled with nutritious veggies!

​Enjoy!
