Whole Wheat Veggie Naan Wraps

I’m baaaaaaack!

After a fantastic year abroad in Switzerland and a few months of a blogging hiatus, I’m officially back in the cooking game – and back in Texas! Today, I thought I might share an absolutely fantastic recipe crafted by one of my former flatmates! Say hello to Whole Wheat Vegetarian Naan Wraps!

I’m a huge fan of these bad boys. Chock-full of protein and antioxidants, these are pretty easy to make and perfect for a summer lunch!

To start, the dough requires a little tender loving care but the result is well worth it. After combining all the ingredients found below, allow it to rise for about two hours. When ready, pinch off a medium sized bit and roll out until fairly flat, like so:

After this, grill it in a pan with a bit of olive oil until browned. When finish, top with the veggies (and legumes) of your choice! Personally, I enjoy a bit of cooked black or red beans, spinach, tomato, and avocado but the choice is yours!
