When I ate Naan the first time I can’t believe the bread is made within minutes. You only have to let the dough rise and then bake the Naan simply in a pan for minutes. It’s one of the delicious things I ever ate. Sure, in this version it is not the healthiest food I eat but I don’t want to change anything. I have some meals I know they aren’t the healthiest in the world but I don’t want to miss them in my life. I try to bake this Naan in the oven first but I don’t get the right result I get in a pan after frying it in butter. Yes, it’s not vegan, it’s vegetarian.
Vegetarian or Vegan
If you want to make a vegan version it’s really simple as well. You only need to replace the honey in syrup, the butter in coconut oil and the yoghurt in soy yoghurt. I prefer the vegetarian version because I really love love butter so so much. I often replace butter but in some meals or for this bread I really need the unique butter flavor. You can enjoy this Naan with some Dips, serve it with a chickpea stew or eat it as a garnish to a salad. We enjoyed it to Harissa Eggs. OMG! Soooo good. I promise you! Best combination ever!
I’m already working on my next Blog Post about dietary change because I made my own experience in the last years I like to share with you. I hear about dietary change very often. Lot of people try to change their diet in a suffer way. They want to much in a short time. But dietary change is hard work, learning and listen to your body really carefully. You can learn more in my next Blog Post. Can’t wait!
This bread remember me on this Post because it isn’t completely healthy but I’m sure it isn’t that bad for me because 90% of my diet is really really healthy. Life is enjoyment and this bread is a part of mine.

Hi Janine! What a lovely recipe! Naan used to be one of my favorite breads!! Can’t remember when I ate it the last time..I would really love to try this recipe. I would have to try a gluten-free flour mix, though (my body doesn’t tolerate spelt so well), not sure if it would work out that well. These look so fluffy!! And you have a handsome model there, too 🙂
Hi Tiina, I am so sorry you don’t tolerate spelt. I haven’t been cooked only with gluten-free flour but I am sure it can work well. Wish you a nice day hon. xoxo Janine
