My buckwheat obsession ~ three ingredient gluten-free naan

Happy Monday morning…It is the build up to our first Bank Holiday of the year here in Ireland with St. Patrick’s Day on Monday. There will be celebrations and parades on over the weekend and every village and town will be heaving with visitors – the weather is looking good too which is an added bonus!

When I was researching and experimenting with different ingredients to make gluten-free bread one of my blogging buddies told me her favorite gluten-free flour is buckwheat. Despite the name it is completely gluten-free. I had a bag of buckwheat groats in my cupboard, which I was going to use for salads, similar to the way I use quinoa. In the end I decided to make my own flour in my coffee grinder and see for myself! Boy, am I glad I did ~ it is AMAZING and I have had a slight obsession cooking with it for the last two weeks!

Recipes I have made with it include buckwheat and sunflower seed bread, buckwheat pancakes, banana and hazelnut buckwheat bread, buckwheat pizza, buckwheat naan bread and buckwheat stuffing! I can report that every single one worked out and tasted really good. So, today I am going to share the buckwheat naan recipe, you will not believe how quick and easy it is πŸ™‚

Let me introduce the three ingredient gluten-free naan bread. This makes one naan and serves two – we had it with homemade chicken jalfrezi, cauli-rice and homemade oven chips on Saturday night…It is divine!

Ingredients

 

  • 1/2 cup / 70g buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil (a drizzle)
  • 1/4cup / 60ml of warm water

Method

 

Mix the ingredients together in to a dough then place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out in to a thin oval shape.

Heat a non stick pan to medium high heat and cook for 3-4 minutes each side making sure not to burn

That’s it!

I added grated cheddar, garlic powder and fresh coriander (cilantro) to my dough for extra flavor.
