The chicken or the egg? Well – I’ve come out of my Idol induced coma – to post a video that I just saw today. I’m not an animal rights activist – and I am actually pro-farmer – just not industrial farms. This video shows the treatment of laying hens at a facility in Turlock, California. I’m not saying we shouldn’t eat eggs – but maybe now would be a good time to look into getting your eggs from a local source – or at least find some that are cage-free – and fed a vegetarian diet.
WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS VERY DISTURBING AND SHOULD NOT BE WATCHED BY SMALL CHILDREN
…to sing the praises of Naan:
Seriously. Dude. Go make this. You can find the recipe here.
I do hate to be the bearer of whole-grain bad news, but it’s totally not as good when you add whole wheat flour. It’s best to follow the recipe, using bread flour, for tastiest results. I added a mere half cup of KAF organic wheat flour (which is very mild) and it did throw the recipe off. (sigh)
The only other change I made was one that was suggested in the reviews — instead of kneading the garlic in, I sauteed it in olive oil and used that oil in the cooking step. mmmm, garlicky.
