Flatbread Duo: Butternut Pesto Pine Nut & Fig Walnut Goat Cheese

Print

A meal, according to my understanding anyhow, is a communal event, bringing together family members, neighbors, even strangers.  At its most ordinary, it involves hospitality, giving, receiving and gratitude.

-Wendell Berry

Tiny pillows of naan make the perfect vehicle for winter flavors.  Toasty and golden, the possibilities are endless.  These are my favorite combinations of sweet and savory, crunchy and tender.  A scattering of fresh baby arugula beckons balance…and beauty.

Share food with someone.  The gesture is pure love.

    I love the colour of the squash and the arugula, so beautiful! Also, great idea to use naan bread. I’ve tried my hand at making pizza dough a few times but am always left disappointed. There’s a great Indian restaurant at the end of my street that I will be visiting for some naan tomorrow night :)
