Vegan Saag Paneer | with Grilled Flat Bread

The first time I tried Saag Paneer I thought, “This cheese tastes very tofu-y.” So when I saw a recipe for it on Connoisseurusveg, I wondered why I hadn’t thought of that before. 🙂 She’s a genius.

I paired it with a really easy grilled flatbread recipe because making naan would have required some yogurt, and soy yogurt is impossible to buy here. The flatbread kept me on a vegan track!

And, dare I say it, they are so much better. Like so much better, you guys.

Turn mixture out into the dish. Separate three holes for the eggs. Add your eggs to the holes. You may need to pinch the edges of your mixture together higher to keep the eggs from touching and ruining your aesthetic. Bake at 450 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. …
