Breads, Date Night couple cookin’, High Protein

Naan (part of date nite cooking)

Naan. So fun to say, so fun to eat. Oh, so easy to make. With this being a small process it takes a bit of pre- planning but a great addition to date night help. Jason was a great help rolling out the dough as I black skillet baked the Naan. Easy ingredients.

Warm Naan
  • 2.5 c flour
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1/2 c warm water
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp sugar

Mix warm water , sugar , and yeast, let stand for 10 minutes to activate the yeast.

Separate bowl mix dry ingredients and mound on a work area , creating a center well.

Mix by hand working wet into dry

Add your wet ingredients and work into a smooth dough. Here is where I struggled and improvised. I cant kneed dough anymore after an injury so I depend on my kitchen aide. Tried the board method and it was a countertop disaster! Solution!

Dumped all into the mixer. Dough hook to the rescue! Mixed well to a smooth dough. About 2 minutes. Lightly oil dough and cover with towel. Cover and place in a warm area to rest and rise 1 hour. After 1 hour cut into 8 even pieces. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness or so rounds while skillet warms to med heat. Lightly oil pan with olive oil and bake dough one at a time flipping as they cook. About 2-3 min each side.

Stack loaves and after all are done place back in plate covered skillet, off the heat, to stay warm for dinner. Even better next day.

Be creative. Add garlic powder or herbs to enhance your dough. serve with hummus or use for hero wraps. Small pizza crusts with lots of toppings is another option. Enjoy.
