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!

YUM. I so need this in my life. Looks so delicious!! 🙂
Mmm loooove the look of this!
Goat cheese plus bread? You are speaking my love language.
I just posted homemade Naan yesterday and then today did Butter chicken! Now I wish i still had some Naan left so I could grill it and slather with goat cheese! Sounds so good!
Drooling over this Amy!! LOVE all of the flavors!
This would be such a fabulous lunch, so quick and so much flavor, I love it!
Naan is such a lovely bread but I’d have never thought of topping it like this! What a lovely recipe to serve with cocktails or for a quick lunch.
This looks amazing. You don’t have to twist my arm to love goat cheese and bread. Delicious!
Such a quick and fabulous lunch option!
My mouth is watering!! You have paired two of my favorite things here and I love you for it!
I am a huge goat cheese fan and this hits all the right spots for me. I would call it a breakfast dish if one were set in front of me, like NOW!
This is absolutely beautiful, Amy!!
I thought there was nothing better than plain naan – until I saw this post! What a great idea to turn it into a flatbread. Looks gorgeous and delicious!
Thoroughly enjoyed this one tonight!!! I used my countertop grill for this, but next time I think I’ll try my BBQ grill. How do you manage to get the toppings on while it’s on the heat?
This is my firs5 review eve4 because this recipe was so easy and yummy. I added some smoked chicken, as well.
