I love the idea of a loaded naan, not least because my own nan shuffled off in her Aldi slippers far from loaded, much to my chagrin. We got very little in the way of inheritance but that's fine: I'd still swap everything I have for another chance to listen to her four same stories and her loud remonstrations whenever I used to mouth 'vacuum' at Paul from across the room. Ah, sweet times.
This recipe really is ridiculously easy - note that we haven't counted the syns for the naan breads though because it changes all the time. Check with your SW consultant for the best naan breads to have as your healthy extra!
As our exciting life in a hotel continues, we're still using Hello Fresh - not getting paid to promote them, mind, and making changes to their recipes to bring them in line with the blog. That said, because we've been asked, we tend to go for the low-calorie options or the rapid options if you were thinking about having a go. It works for us because we don't have a big kitchen to store ingredients and we're actually saving money because no food waste. If you do want to try it, you can use this link to get £20 off your first box, and we'll get £20 too.
500g lean beef mince
one tin of chickpeas
one beef stock cube
two tsp of curry powder
salt and pepper
two tbsp of tomato puree
one clove of garlic minced
four mini naans
one iceberg lettuce
natural yoghurt to drizzle all over the top
drain and rinse your chickpeas, keeping half in a bowl and mashing the rest with a fork
in a frying pan, fry off your beef mince until cooked through
add a pinch of salt and pepper as it cooks
reduce to a medium heat and then add the curry powder, tomato puree and garlic, stirring through for a moment or two
add 100ml of water along with the chickpeas - mashed and whole - and the stock cube
allow to burble away for a few minutes to thicken up
whilst that's happening, toast your naan breads and chop up your lettuce
when you're ready to serve, top the naan with lettuce, then the beef mix, then a drizzle of yoghurt on the top if you can be arsed
if you don't want to use your healthy extra on naan breads, this mixture does very well indeed on a jacket potato
add peppers and onion to bulk it out, but honestly, the recipe sings with its simplicity
