Grilled Veggies on Garlic Naan with Lemon Yogurt and Sumac

First of all, apologies for my rather dramatic slowdown in posts. We just launched a new business and that has taken a lot of my time lately.

Today is Diwali. The Hindu festival of lights. In India though, it is everybody’s festival, a little like Christmas in the US. Diwali is said to mark new beginnings. To celebrate that, I am posting a new recipe. A new recipe for a new beginning.

This recipe is not original. Having got weary of the cooking the same regular set of staples, a few weeks back, the wife and I decided to sign up for a service called “Green Chef“. This is a food delivery service where you get the ingredients for three recipes a week delivered to you. They are pre-measured, and come with the recipe associated with them. You do have to cook and assemble but it is usually a 30 minute job. The best part is that they send you recipes and combinations that you otherwise would not think of or make. Even though it is a bit of hit-or-miss (about 60% of the recipes have been good so far), it does offer variety. We are sold and have signed up for a delivery every other week.

This recipe came a few weeks back and we loved it. Since the ingredients came pre-measured, I recreated it to the best of my abilities and it works pretty well. Since I was winging it, the quantities are approximate.

INGREDIENTS (for 4)

2 Naans (you can buy them at a grocery store)

Minced Garlic

Olive Oil

Veggies for Grilling – Cauliflower, Broccoli, Carrots, Red Onion, Cherry Tomatoes, Zucchini – chopped into bite sized pieces

Minced herbs – I used Basil and Rosemary

Salt and Pepper

Greek Yogurt

Lemon

Sumac

STEPS

  1. Rub Olive Oil and Garlic on Naans and toast them till they just start to brown – about 2 mins. Set aside.
  2. Toss the veggies with some Olive Oil and salt and pepper and grill them.
  3. Toss the grilled veggies with herbs.
  4. Spoon the grilled veggies on top of the Naans and broil/grill them in the oven – about 2-3 mins (if high heat).
  5. Whisk some Greek Yogurt with Lemon juice (to taste).
  6. Top the veggies with yogurt and Sumac and serve with a salad (I served it with a Cranberry Kale Salad)

    What herbs did you use? The ingredient list petered out (“Minced herbs – I used …”).
