Key ingredient:  Whole Wheat Naan Bread (found in the bakery department)

Nutrition benefits:  The whole wheat version of Naan bread offers added fiber and nutrients but is very low in fat.  It can easily be pared with nutrient-rich food such as vegetable soups or stews or as a snack with hummus and veggies.  Our recipes below use the Naan bread as a “pizza crust” topped with colorful ingredients and grilled for a quick summertime dinner.
