Gluten free sourdough discard naan bread on a plate

Gluten free sourdough discard “naan” bread

One of the best ways to use your gluten free sourdough discard are for sure these little tasty flatbreads. They remind me a lot of an Indian style naan bread or a pita bread. They are soft, delicious and make the perfect side for your saucy dishes.

My sourdough was 100% rice flour, but this recipe works with every type of sourdough (buckwheat, teff, sorghum…).

A pan cooked naan style bread made with sourdough discard.


  • 100 g / β…“ cup sourdough discard

  • 80 g / Β½ cup rice flour

  • 80 g / ΒΎ cup potato starch

  • 10 g / 2 tsp psyllium husk

  • 200 g / 1 cup water

  • 5 g / 1 tsp of salt

  • rosemary or other herbs

How to

  • Melt your sourdough in half of the water until it dissolves. Then add the psyllium husk.
  • Add the rice flour, the potato starch and the other half of water. Season with a teaspoon of salt and the herbs you prefer (chopped fresh rosemary for example).
  • Divide in 4 balls, flatten them with your hands and let them rise in a warm place for 3 hours.
  • Heat a flat pan until very hot and then cook the flatbreads 7-8 minutes for each side.

Looking for a CHEESE gluten free naan bread?

For the cheese πŸ§€ version, just add a cheese cube and a butter flake in the middle of each ball before flatten them out. Cook them as in the instructions and they will be completely melting at heart. In this version, you can also brush some melted cheese on top once cooked.

Ingredients and substitutions

If you are allergic or intolerant to potatoes, you can sub the potato starch with corn starch or tapioca flour. I would keep a starch anyway to maintain the softness.
