Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 2004

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)


  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato halves, packed without oil (about 1 1/4 ounces)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Romano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash of ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup fat-free buttermilk


Cover sun-dried tomatoes with boiling water in a bowl; let stand 30 minutes or until soft. Drain well, and finely chop.

Preheat oven to 425°. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cheese, and next 7 ingredients (through pepper) in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in chopped tomatoes. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times with floured hands. Divide dough in half. Pat each dough portion into a 6-inch circle on prepared baking sheet. Cut each circle into six wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until golden.
