This duo of recipes is one of my very favorite things to make for Mo and I (or, just myself 🙂 ) when I get the craving for something bready and unctuous! You know that craving? No? Just me? Ha! If you don’t know it – I’m not sure how to explain it… It’s just this want for something doughy that has a little chew to it and something to dip that texture in just tops it off! …takes it over the edge!
The naan in this recipe is not mine to claim at all! Ashley from My Heart Beets is due FULL credit for this and deserves every bit of it! She’s a genius for many of her recipes, but this one alone made me a believer!
The tzatziki is not traditional in the sense that it does not have cucumber in it. Could you add it? Absolutely! I would use a Hothouse cucumber. Halve it length-wise and then scoop the seeds out with a spoon. Finely dice or grate using a box-grater – a quarter to half of the cucumber depending upon your preference and mix it into the tzatziki recipe below.
I love to serve this with my Primal Greek Casserole (recipe coming soon!) or as an appetizer when we have company over… Or, like I said, when the craving hits me and I want something clean-eating to fill the craving with!
Hope this becomes one of your new go-to’s when you get that craving too! You’ll feel much better for it!
