Sourdough Naan Bread with Garlic and Cilantro, THM E

Naan Breads are a soft pillowy flatbread native to India and parts of South and west Asia. Yogurt is added to the dough t give it its unique flavor and soft tender texture. These breads are cooked in a special oven called a tandoor. However, you can make them in a cast iron skillet, too. The garlic and cilantro gives these breads a wonderful flavor. The soft, chewy texture is hard to beat. I will use these naan breads to make Fish Gyros with a yogurt sauce. So delicious!!

No-knead Honey Oat Sourdough Bread, THM E, Dairy-free

Honey Oat Bread has always been a favorite of mine. No-knead breads top my list of favorites because they are so easy to mix up using a spoon or spatula.

Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup THM-E

Stockpots full of hearty soups are so delicious and filling on busy fall/winter days. This Southwestern Chicken and Bean soup has become a family favorite. I often serve it with cornbread or Multi-grain Sourdough bread. Over the winter months I pressure can black beans to use in this soup or for rice and beans. Sweet corn give just the right amount of sweetness that go so well with the spiciness. You can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste and even add a diced Jalapeno or two if you like more heat. I will freeze individual portions of this soup for school lunches or for a quick meal when I am home by myself.
