I’ve always loved naan, the Indian flatbread. It’s so versatile. I’m sure there are recipes out there to make your own, but I’m not really one for making my own bread, particularly when you can get good bread at the market. The lovely people at Stonefire flatbreads sent me some samples to try* and we really enjoyed them, so I’m sharing a quick review of them here.
We had 3 different types to try: regular, garlic, and whole wheat. They come 2 flatbreads to a package.
- We decided to go traditional for the first try, and have these along side some takeout Indian food. I was too lazy to cook, and I must admit I’ve never attempted a good Lamb Korma.
- The company recommended spritzing with water and/or brushing with a little oil and reheating, so that’s what we did. I was quite impressed. The bread tasted as good as many I’ve had out a local restaurants.
- For the whole wheat version I decided we needed more samplers, and a less traditional application, so we tried it sliced into wedges as an accompaniment to some hummus dip.
- The Whole Wheat was still tasty (and healthier), but the texture was not quite as light and fluffy as the non-whole wheat version. Still good though.
- For the regular naan, I decided that lunch was in order. For the first one, myself and The Boy made mini sandwiches with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and spinach. The bread was light and fluffy, similar to the garlic. Both me and the 6 year old gave it a thumbs up.
- For the second piece, I made a hummus and cheese ‘pizza’. Top the naan with a spread of good hummus, sprinkle with cheese (I used cheddar), and pop into the toaster oven until the cheese is nice and bubbly. A yummy lunch, or could easily be sliced up for appetizers.
What about you? Have any brilliant ideas for naan?
*at Foodwhirl we do welcome food product samples, and if we try and like them, we will share them (our thoughts about them, not the actual samples!) with our readers. If we don’t care for them, we’ll tell you guys that too, or refrain from reviewing at all. So we try to make sure we are always giving an honest and upright review. Other than providing samples, Stonefire did not compensate us for this post, we just like them so we thought you might too!Pin It Jump to Comments!
