Garlic Naan

Who doesn’t love naan? You know, that soft pillowy Indian flatbread that’s perfect for scooping up spicy curries. Well I’ve got good news for you! That doughy restaurant favourite is now something you can make from home! If making yeasted dough intimidates you, this is one recipe it’s hard to mess up. In fact, the messier you get with it, the better the bread comes out!



I grew up in a family where we made anything from scratch and I love eating any kind of food that is homemade! A homemade naan not only tastes better, because it doesn’t have all those preservatives that store-bought bread does, it also has a better texture, and it’s, of course, better for you. Once you’ve made it, you might find it hard to go back. I’ve been working on this recipe for a while now, and it’s finally ready to be released into the world! I am honestly thrilled about this vegan garlic naan recipe because it is sooo easy.



Naan is a yeasted bread, so the leavening of the bread comes from yeast and not baking soda or powder. Because the dough is so wet, and there is plenty of sugar around for the yeast to feed on, naan doesn’t actually take very long to rise.

After mixing and kneading the ingredients together, the dough takes about an hour to rise. Good naan should be super flavourful. It should be soft and bubbly, filled with air pockets and crisp spots on the bottom. The dough should taste rich and buttery, but mild enough to accompany flavourful Indian dishes.



Warm, chewy naan is my favourite side to a bowl of comforting curry, because nothing pairs better with Indian food than a yeasty, garlic naan bread. I love a good curry and when you have a good curry, well, a delicious naan bread is the perfect companion.
