Almond Flour Garlic Naan

GET READY FOR DIS. Again, I had pulp from my homemade almond milk that I dehydrated to make a type of almond meal. I really wanted to use this in some form other than energy balls or pizza crust. Gotta mix it up, people!

So. This recipe is adapted from Savita here.

Garlic Naan Dough

  • 3 tbsp – plain keifer
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tbsp EVOO
  • 6 tbsp milk (I used skim, probs could use anything)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cloves fresh pressed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

Toppings

  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • fresh cilantro chopped

Mix all dough ingredients together! The dough shouldn’t be too wet or sticky, so throw a bit of extra flour in, if this is the case. Also, word on the street is that you shouldn’t knead the crap out of your dough because it’ll get super tough. So don’t do that. Once you feel you’ve got a good ball o’ dough, throw a bit of EVOO in a bowl and rub it all over that ball. Cover for 30. Do your dishes while you wait. You can thank me later.

Also while you’re waiting, grab a heavy pan (I used a large cast iron skillet). Get that sucker heating up.

Then you’re going to want to take that butter you set aside and pop it in the microwave until melted. Throw in your finely chopped garlic. Go ahead and cut up some fresh cilantro if you haven’t yet.

K, once the dough has set for 30, cut it into 5-6 small pieces, in which you’ll throw on a bit of flour so it’s easier to roll out. (About 6 inches wide.) Once you have your dough flattened, throw one (or two if you can fit them) in the pan and cook 1-2 minutes on each side.

Right after you finish cooking one, grab a brush and cover your hot naan with some BUTTAH and sprinkle a bit of cilantro on ‘er.

DONEZO. I don’t pride myself in super detailed recipes. Sorry. Pinterest will help you with any questions. Or I encourage you to just go for it, like I did!

I feel less shame in eat like 3 of these because I put keifer, EVOO, and almond meal in them. Like, whatever. Sue me or something.

P.S. I used some of these bad boys as pizza crusts to make personal pans. So basically I loved them so much I didn’t snag a picture. What? Sorry, this is real life.

Cheers, and happy cooking!
