Unleavened bread -- flat bread made without yeast -- is a traditional Jewish food consumed during the week of Passover. According to Moses' instructions in Exodus 12:19, "For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses.

" If you don't have access to a conventional oven, you can convert an unleavened bread recipe for the microwave.

Knead 1/2 cup water with 2 cups of flour for 10 minutes.

Roll the dough into a ball and cut it into 16 sections. On a floured surface, roll each section into a ball and flatten it into a 6-inch circle using a rolling pin.

Pierce each dough circle at 1-inch intervals with a fork. Place the dough circles on a flat microwaveable dish.

Cook the bread for 1 minute, 45 seconds in the microwave.
