Mina - awesome

Naan bread?

Has anyone veganized Naan successfully?

If yes, can you share your recipe &/or technique?

I miss the Naan.

Thanks in advance.

I should clarify - I'm really interested in personal experiences with making naan. I'm currently talentless when it comes to making bread, particularly if it involves yeast. It would be tremendously helpful if anyone who has made pita or naan bread could let me know if someone as semi-rising bread illiterate as I am could make it. :)

Nettle Soup

Nettles are all over the place this time of year. So had to try to make this, well worth a try as nettles even if your in the city center should be growing somewhere nearby.

1 bag of freshly young nettle leaves
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic
3 potatoes, diced
1 vegetable stock cube
4 (or to taste) desert spoons of plain soy yogurt
A dash of olive oil

Pop the onion, garlic and potatoes in a large saucepan. Fry them for about 4 minutes in olive oil . While that's doing wash nettle leaves well and add them. Then stock cube. Boil for about 15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked. Then add your soy yogurt and liquidise. The business, the kids loved it too.
