So I have been on a flatbread kick lately. First I learned how to make pita bread, then I learned how to make tortillas, and today I made naan bread for the first time. I hadn't planned on doing this, but they repaved part of the Trader Joe's parking lot and it is hard enough to find parking when the full lot is available, so I couldn't pick up soy free Naan bread. I decided to just go ahead and make some since I had yogurt for making the tzatziki sauce (used fresh dill from the garden in this).
It really wasn't that hard. The recipe makes six, but I made 4 larger ones instead, since I was making chicken shawarma and we like to wrap it up in the bread. Usually I make pita bread, but I wanted something a bit thicker to stand up to the juices. It worked a treat. And the bread was just amazing otherwise. I used this recipe: [url]https://www.onceuponachef.com/recipes/homemade-naan.htm... It was a lot cheaper than buying it and really didn't take a ton of hands on time, maybe 30 minutes.
I also harvested a bunch of herbs today and have them in the dehydrator. I have 1 tray of spearmint, 1 tray of peppermint, 1 tray of holy basil (green), 2 trays of purple basil, 1 half tray of purple basil with a half tray of thyme, 1 half tray of parsley with some oregano and a few more mint leaves, and a tray of cilantro. I usually dehydrate enough herbs for the year and most of my teas, too. It is amazing how much money I save by doing this and the spices keep longer than store bought ones without losing their flavor. It is so worth the time involved.
