I’m mashing up two ethnic foods today. To start I’m using Stonefire’s Naan for the flatbread base and topping it with a Thai styled chicken salad.
Don’t be fooled by the light look of this Chicken Thai Salad Flabread, it’s full of heft and heartiness. It’s a meal, not an appetizer or side dish. And it’s takes less than 15 minutes to make—a sanity saver for those crazy busy days.
You know what it’s like, the weekday rush of trying to figure out dinner. You stare in your refrigerator—and yep, its full of food. But here’s the rub: (1) How long will it take to compose something from all the odds and ends, bits and pieces and everything else that is begging to be used (2) How many dishes will have to be wash at the end of it all (4) And, the worst one, but so true—can I blog it, because that’s how multi-tasking goes.
But the other night, everything came together easily, I bypassed the no-knead pizza crust for some of Stonefire’s Naan Bread because convenience paired with them being awesome tasting trumped dirtying up a mixing bowl, wiping down a floured countertop, dishwashing was reduced to a cutting board and knife (admittedly, I made everyone eat on paper plates-ha!).
Now here’s the thing with these Stonefire Naan bread, its hand stretched, made with the freshest ingredients and baked with extremely high heat so the big bubbles, airy texture and smoky flavor is what makes it standout. It’s also what makes it a top quality canvas for endless 15 minute meals—go ahead . . . get creative and start composing your meal.
