Grilled Spicy Naan with Goat Cheese
Spice things up with this easy Grilled Spicy Naan with Goat Cheese.
I always forget how much a Turmeric, and Cumin fan I am, until it’s toasting or stewing away in a dish. There’s something about both of them that create an appetite out of nowhere. The herbs combined with onion sautéing do incredible things to the saliva glands. Funny how aromas do that, isn’t it?
When making this Grilled Spicy Naan with Goat Cheese, I wasn’t too hungry, but boy did these naan flatbreads disappear quickly. The heat created with the seasoning combination isn’t overly spicy, but rather a subtle one that comes back making you want more.
Goat cheese fan? You’ll be in goat cheese heaven with this one. Personally, I’m not a huge goat cheese fan, so I only used about half the amount on my naan flatbread and prepared one with the full amount of cheese for my husband. Next time I’ll double the onions though. I like some sautéed onions!
These were quick to put together, which is always a perk in my cooking book. And if you’re not up for grilling outdoors, a panini press or grill pan will work too.
These Grilled Spicy Naan with Goat Cheese were perfect for an early supper, but would make a super appetizer or party food for many occasions. Try them soon!
