It’s no secret that I love stuffed Naan. It’s SOOO good!
It’s great because I bake it or dry grill no frying so a healthier option and so tasty that no one will complain.
This recipe, just came about because I am working on emptying out the fridge, (my fridge is way to full) and I love cheese, like who doesn’t and of course I love my greens. I grow a huge amount of organic fruits, vegetables and of course more greens than most people could consume.
This recipe is pretty loose. You can change the nuts or leave them out you can also add whatever your favourite herbs are. Add mint, coriander, dill, whatever floats your boat and of course some cheese. I am so not traditional and do Mexican cross overs with feta, sheep cheese or jalapeno cheese. You could make nut cheese if you don’t eat dairy.
This is seriously a good naan.
