This delectable and comforting Blue Cheese Naan with Apples, Honey and Onions comes together in less than 5 minutes, once your dough is ready. Less than 5 minutes, it is all it takes to enjoy to homemade bread. Imagine that!
Naan is typically an oven baked flat bread, similar to pita bread originally from North India. As we were researching how to make homemade Naan, we learned that it is traditionally made in a special tandoori oven. However, it can also be made on the stove using a cast iron skillet. Once the dough is ready, this blue cheese Naan comes together incredibly fast! It typically takes about 3 minutes in a skillet or cast iron pan to prepare. Imagine that!
We love bread, especially homemade bread, but we don’t allow ourselves to eat it that often. We embarked on the quest to make Naan bread at home but, as we usually do, we wanted to make it our own, just to add a little more comfort and deliciousness to it. Deciding to add cheese to the dough was our way of making our Naan unique, decadent and scrumptious and Sincerely Brigitte’s Blue Marble Cheese provided the extra burst of flavor we were looking for. Even though this naan bread is good enough to enjoy by itself, we wanted to infuse some fall flavors into it. We made a simple chutney by cooking onions, apples, and adding a touch of honey which gives this vegetarian recipe a hint of comforting fall flavor. Close your eyes and imagine yourself enjoying this flavorful Naan with a warm bowl of soup or a salad for quick, easy to make and delectable dinner that can be enjoyed any day of the week.

We are two sisters born and raised in Barcelona, Spain, with Sephardic and Middle Eastern roots. We grew up eating the best, most flavorful, comforting home-cooked meals prepared by our mom, who taught us everything we know about cooking. When we moved here to the U.S. we felt it was really important to keep our traditions and background alive, and we've done so by sharing it with everyone we've met throughout the years. After all, what better way to make new friends and share our love and culture than through food, right? Our friends have come to enjoy our food and gatherings so much that are always asking us for our recipes. That inspired us to start a cooking blog called "May I have that recipe" where we share recipes we've created inspired by our multicultural background.
