Whenever I see “Bread with dips” on a menu, it makes chosing food that much easier. It is my go-to lunch at a couple of different restaurants. It might not be the healthiest thing in the world, but it is definitely worth a cheat-day! For a lunch with my friends, I decided to go for a little different take on the traditional bread with dips, and went for Indian naan bread with Turkish meze. Bread 'n Dips

  • ~ What you’ll need for the meze ~
  • 2 packs of feta cheese
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 1,5 cloves of garlic
  • Oregano
  • 1 lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Bread 'n Dips Bread 'n Dips So I made two different kinds of meze: One with red bell pepper and one with oregano and garlic. For the first one, start off by cutting the pepper into small chunks and bake them in some oil until they’re soft. Then, all you need to do is pop them in a food processor, along with 1 pack of feta, half a clove of garlic and some salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. If it’s too thick, you can add a dash of olive oil.

Then it’s just a matter of blending, and occasionally adding some olive oil untill you’ve reached a fairly smooth texture. Bread 'n Dips

  • ~ What you’ll need for the bread ~
  • 400 gr. self-raising flour
  • 300 gr. full fat yoghurt
  • A pinch of salt
  • ~ For the herbal mixture ~
  • 100 ml. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. za’atar (a herbal mixture you can find at your local supermarket)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper

Knead together the self-raising flour, yoghurt and a pinch of salt until it feels elastic and slightly sticky. Or, if you’re lazy like me and hate kneading dough, get someone else (my mother) to do it.  Then divide the dough into 8 pieces of roughly the same size. Roll out every piece into an oval shape. Try to roll it pretty thin. Bread 'n Dips Then, make a herbal mixture by mixing the olive oil, za’atar, crushed garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Coat one side of a rolled out dough with this mixture. Then put it, greased side down, in a hot grill pan. While this is grilling, coat the other side with the herbal mixture. Grill on each side for about 2 minutes. And then your naan bread is done! It is definitely best when you eat it straight away, when it’s still a bit warm. But it can also easily be stored in the freezer. Bread 'n Dips Bread 'n Dips Bread 'n Dips As I mentioned earlier, I made this as a part of a lunch. But the meze are also always a great hit at parties. And the naan bread is delicious with a curry or some other Indian dish. And of course you can play around with the ingredients a bit to achieve more different flavours!
