This week’s recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie is Oasis Naan. This flat bread is good for tearing off pieces and soaking up gravy or sauce from a stew or soup. I made it to go with some pasta for dinner one night. We all thought it was just okay. I didn’t put the scallions on top but did sprinkle it with salt and cumin. The top one in the photo is sprinkled with a little dried oregano and basil and salt (no cumin). I knew the boys wouldn’t be crazy about the naan, so with half the dough, I made breadsticks and brushed them with oil and sprinkled cheese and dried oregano and basil on top. The breadsticks were definitely a bigger hit.
I probably wouldn’t make naan again, but thought it was a good bread dough to work with. If you’d like the recipe, you can find it on our host blogs--
