TWD—Baking With Julia--Oasis Naan

Oasis Naan TWD

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--

I'd like a few cheese sticks, please! I thought this turned out more like pizza dough than naan, so cheese sticks makes perfect sense to me. Yum!

I have half my dough in the fridge. I think I will try the bread sticks. they look yummy.
I'm glad I finally made naan but I do like pizza dough better--probably because it is full of olive oil!

Oh... delicious!
This dough recipe is a winner in our family and so versatile: I've added some veg to them and were really good.

I think right now, even though I love naan I would gravitate for the breadsticks also!! :)
