I love to showcase time and again that vegetarian meals can be delicious and bring lots of flavor to your every day dinner and even to parties. Once you take-care to select right ingredients and pair bold-flavors, chances are, your family will finish veggie dishes before anything else!
In my home, every party, I have to cater to all guest requests and special dietary needs. Since a lot of my friends are vegetarian..... I always make sure to cook some delicious vegetarian options so that no one feels neglected.
Not just vegetarians, vegetarian dishes everyone enjoys! I mean, veggie sides, appetizers, salads, veggie filling for tacos, or naan pockets........ all these finish MUCH quickly in my parties. This was a learning experience for me, really. I'm sure you can relate.
In my early days of hosting parties, all of veggie sides would disappear quickly and my vegetarian guests would end-up hungry. So, these days, I have a rule to double the "veggie cuisine", so that all can enjoy!
For all such feasts, I prep and plan everything in advance and keep few ready-to-use options in hand. Specially, for grill-outs, I prefer "veggie cuisine" using MorningStar Farms delicious vegetarian products. These provide a healthy option for my guests but still brings great flavor to dishes.
Today's Naan Pockets recipe is not just famous in my grill-out parties but also favorite of everyone in my family for a delicious Indian weekday dinner.
Most, or all of these, can be prepared in advance: grape raita, sweet and spicy Curry Sauce, naan pockets..... And when your guests arrive, all you need to do is grill MorningStar® Farms Spicy Veggie Indian burger patties and veggies, assemble, and serve!
How easy does that sound?
Grape Raita and Curry Dressing can be prepared a day in advance. You can use store-bought naan bread or even pita bread to make these pockets. Or if you love serving everything homemade, I have an easy naan bread recipe for you with freeze instructions. Just make sure to buy packs of MorningStar® Farms veggie burgers from store. (Target is just around the corner from my house, so I bought, all supplies for today's feast, from Target.)
MorningStar® Farms offers a wide selection of veggie burgers which really make "veggie cuisine" a STAR of our gill-outs. Not just grill-outs, sometimes, I love using these veggie patties for my meatless Monday dinners too.
Friends, just in time for Meatless Monday, I have given you a delicious Vegetarian Naan Pockets recipe to try! And guess what? You can even make it today and serve your family a flavorful, sweet, spicy Indian dinner in no time!!
Ditch the delivery, do some groceries while your way home from work and make Veggie Naan Pockets for dinner tonight!!
Have a great day! -savita
Here are few more Veggie Dinner Ideas from my recipe repertoire!
Spicy Veggie Curry Naan Pockets with Grape Raita
1. Grill Patties and Zucchini: Preheat outdoor grill or heat an iron griddle and spray with oil. Place MorningStar Farms veggie patties and zucchini on grill. Grill veggie patties until internal temperature registers 160 degrees Fahrenheit.2. Grill zucchini until nice grill marks appear and is tender per your liking (I like to grill for 2-3 minutes each side). Season with salt and pepper, slice into bite size pieces, and set aside. Also chop tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and grapes, if not already.
3. Grape Raita: To make raita, in a bowl, add yogurt with water and whisk to make smooth. Add seasonings, cilantro, and grapes. Mix well. Taste and adjust salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.4. Curry Dressing: In a small sauce pan, heat 1 tsp oil, add curry powder, stir well, and remove from heat. Transfer curry oil mixture to a small bowl with sour cream, water, lemon juice, and honey. Whisk well to combine everything. Taste and adjust salt and honey, if needed. Set aside.
- 5. Once Patties are ready. Chop into small bite size pieces.
- 6. Build Naan Pockets and Serve: Spray less hot side of grill with oil. Warm naan pockets on the grill until soft (1-2 minutes). If using small or mini ones, then just slice 1/2 inch from one edge of naan to open up the pocket cavity. Fill each naan pocket with equals portions of grilled zucchini, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and chopped patties pieces. Drizzle with some curry dressing and place of a serving platter. Serve with cooling Grape Raita on side. Enjoy! Additional Notes: If using big naans, divide in half.
Savita's Notes:Can't find Naan Bread? You can make some at home or even can use Pita Bread to make Pockets.
