I’ve seen naan pop up on a lot of blogs lately and so I was curious about what this flatbread might taste like. I was fortunate in that Stonefire™ Authentic Flatbreads offered up some samples to try and I’m now a naan fan! But what is it? It’s a smoky-tasting flatbread that’s got its roots in ancient India. The method of cooking naan dates back centuries. The resulting bread is light, soft, and delicious!
Stonefire™ is the number one maker of naan in the US and Canada. They have more than 40-years of experience and they’ve brought the process up-to-date with new technology that mimics the intense heat of the traditional ovens, but one that cooks the bread quickly. They make flavored as well as original – like fire roasted garlic (our fav!) and whole grain. Each small batch is hand stretched and made with fresh buttermilk and Ghee (clarified butter) following a traditional recipe. Our favorite part? Naan is free from preservatives, trans fats, additives, hydrogenated oils, and artificial colors.[photomosaic]
So how many ways can you enjoy this versatile and delicious flatbread? It’s often used as a wrap for sandwiches but we broiled some with olive oil and Parmesan cheese for a side with spaghetti and we enjoyed it . You can also make it into a fabulous Panini sandwich, pizza, or just brush it with olive oil or butter and heat it to enjoy it by itself. My favorite way is to slice it in half and toast it!
Naan is an extremely versatile flatbread, great for dipping, making Panini and pizza, or served on its own. Stonefire Naan can be found at select grocery stores nationwide for approximately $2.99
