Vegan Garlic Knots
It is hard to describe the excitement around my house when I am making these garlic knots. It is an absolute fantastic addition to any meal! It fills the kitchen with the most wonderful aroma. We find all sorts of excuses to make these, and I suspect you may too, if you give them a try.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water (110F)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Add the water making sure that it is not too warm. Add the olive oil and mix. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. Place the dough in a slightly oiled bowl and cover it with plastic wrap or a clean towel. Let rise for 1 hour.
Once your dough has risen for an hour. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Pat the dough flat into a rough rectangular shape. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and work with one piece at a time, placing the other pieces back in the bowl to keep them from drying out.
Working with one piece of dough, flatten the dough into a square shape and cut into 8 pieces.
Working with one small piece at a time, roll the dough into a rope like shape and simply tie the dough into a knot. Place the little garlic knot on a lined baking sheet tray.
Do the same with the remaining pieces. Cover the knots with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15-17 minutes. Prepare the garlic topping while the garlic knots bake.
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 5-6 garlic cloves, crushed or minced
- 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon finely minced parsley
In a pot heat the olive oil. Next add the minced garlic sauté for a minute or so, making sure the garlic does not burn. Turn off the heat and add the salt and parsley.
Immediately after the garlic knots come out of the oven, spread the garlic topping on the garlic knots. Enjoy!
These Garlic Knots freeze so well and are easy to heat up again. Just put them in a freezer bag and freeze. Reheat in the oven for a couple minutes. Enjoy!
