Vegetable Naan Breads - Extra Veg April Linky

We do love a good Fakeaway in our house as normal takeaways are too expensive.  I made these delicious Vegetable Naan Breads as an experiment to accompany a weekend lunch, they went down very well indeed.  Very easy to make, my girls have since made a couple of batches by themselves, and great with a stew, curry or even soup.

Vegetable Naan Breads

500g strong white bread flour
7g sachet instant yeast
3 Tblsp oil
250ml lukewarm water
1 small courgette, grated
1 small carrot, grated

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until a dough forms, add a little extra flour if necessary.  Knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic, either in a mixer or by hand.  Put the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave until doubled in size, this took approximately an hour.

Preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan/400F/Gas Mark 6.  Line two or three oven trays with non stick baking paper.  Knock back the dough and divide into 8 or 10 pieces and roll each piece out to about 20cm/8 inches long.  Put on the prepared oven trays and leave to prove uncovered for around 15 - 20 minutes until risen.  

Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven and transfer from oven trays to wire rack to cool.  I brushed ours with garlic butter when they were just out of the oven, it gave the naan a lovely flavour and kept them soft.  


I am hosting the Extra Veg linky this month, the blog challenge devised by Helen and I to encourage us all to eat more portions of vegetables.  

Taking up the Extra Veg challenge means that you get all the extra vitamins and nutrients from extra helpings of vegetables and the veggies help fill you up so you eat less helpings of unhealthy foods.
