TwD: Oasis Naan Two Ways


The first of this month's Tuesdays With Dorie bake is Oasis Naan from the book "Baking With Julia" by Dorie Greenspan.  Oasis Naan is a variation of the Persian Naan recipe found in the book and the two are not much different except for the added toppings of scallion and spices.  

I decided to do things differently and do my own twist to the naan.  I divided the recipe into 2 batches topping the first batch with za'atar and olive oil and the second one with sumac and feta cheese.  I already used these combinations when I made pita breads last Easter and since we all loved it so much, I decided to do the same for the Oasis Naan.


  


The naan with za'atar is really delicious and herby with a little flavor kick from the sesame seeds.  Definitely something I could use as base for pizza.  The sumac and feta combo is my favorite one so far.  I love how the mild creaminess of the feta balances out the tartness of the sumac.  Such a divine combo!!  Having this even on a slice of toast would be spectacular.




If you want to join TWD or to view the Oasis Naans of my fellow TWD members, check out the TWD blog!  The recipe for the Oasis Naan can be found in our hosts' blogs -- Always Add More Butter and Of Cabbages and King Cakes.

  3. These look wonderful.
    I used za'atar in mine as well - it just seemed like a "right" thing to do...
