Easy Vegan Naan Bread
Easy Vegan Naan Bread Recipe
6" Naan Breads
Active Dry Yeast
if using a packet, be sure to measure out 1 tsp
105 degrees Farenheit
All Purpose Flour
Aluminum Free Baking Powder
Vegan Greek Yogurt, Vegan Sour Cream OR the creamy part of Canned Coconut Milk
any of these will work just fine
In the bowl of your electric mixer, add the yeast and warm water. Allow to sit until it becomes foamy on top.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix (I used the paddle blade, not the dough hook attachment) until you get a uniform dough. If you wish, you could do this all by hand.
I always finish my dough by kneading with my hands until it is smooth and rounded in shape.
Place a small amount of olive oil in a bowl and coat the dough ball with it. Cover with a kitchen towel and place in a warm spot to rise. About 90 minutes.
Once doubled in size, punch down some of the air in the dough and divide into 4 to 8 equally sized pieces and roll thin.
If you have a cast iron pan, this is the perfect time to use it! Preheat until very hot (no oil needed) and place one piece of rolled dough at a time.
Once bubbles start to form on the top and the bottom is browned in areas, quickly flip and repeat. Do not over cook.
Repeat with the remaining dough.
Some serving options include brushing with garlic butter and herbs OR, you can use Naan Bread as the base for homemade pizzas or even sandwiches. The options are endless :)
