The sexier sandwich option!

Sick of sandwiches?
Bored with bread?
Wound up about wraps?

Lunch need not be boring anymore with this exotic cousin of the sliced pan, the Naan!

I love Naan bread with a curry, but It’s equally as nice on its own or gently warmed with some delicious toppings piled on.

Here is my all time favourite, homemade Falafel with coriander salad and shredded sesame-orange carrot salad.

It’s not only healthy but the balance between the soft bread, spiced falafel and zingy cool or range carrot salad will have your taste buds screaming!

Drizzle with some sour cream and hot sauce for an extra level of flavours.

For a more substantial meal I add some lightly stir fried veggies to the base.
