Naan Breads Pizza..


We love making Naan bread pizzas. They are so easy to make and with the children we have fun adding different topping on them.

Some times we all have the same topping sometime we have different, no worries though as they are so easy!!


Per Naan bread

Ingredients:
  • 1 shop brought naan bread
  • 3 tablespoons of passata
  • Few handfuls of grated mature cheese
  • Few handfuls of chopped red, green, yellow peppers
  • 3-4 spoonfuls from a drained tin of tuna


Method:
  1.  Pre heat oven to 180c.
  2. Lay the naan bread on a oven tray and spreed the passata on the top of the naan bread.
  3. Sprinkle the cheese on top, then the tuna, then the mixed peppers.
  4. Cook in over for around 10-15 minutes until golden and cooked.
So many different toppings you could change above for. 

My favourite toppings are:

Swapping peppers for a few below:
  • Tomato
  • Mushroom
  • Pineapple
Swapping tuna for:
  • Ham 
  • Pepperoni
When I made these for a family of 6 I managed to get 8 in the oven at once making them a fun family supper.

Cooking Asparagus...


Asparagus had to be one of my favourite vegetables.

I love everything about them, from the colour, the texture to the taste.


They are not the cheapest of vegetables though. So when we do have them, they are a yummy treat. My favourite way to cook them is to fry them.

Ingredients:
  • Asparagus
  • Tsp of butter or olive oil
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste

Method:
  • Melt the butter or olive oil in a griddle pan over medium heat. 
  •  Add the asparagus, salt and pepper.
  •  Cook for around 10 minutes, turning the asparagus often to ensure even cooking.



How do you like to cook yours?
