Easy Vegan Naan

Easy Vegan Naan

1 teaspoon dry active yeast
3/4 cup warm water
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose flour or white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons coconut cream* the thick white part from a can of full fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
Optional: melted vegan butter for serving, minced garlic or fresh herbs

  • Add the yeast and sugar to a large bowl and pour the warm water on top (think bath temperature, not too hot or it will kill the yeast). Let sit for a few minutes until it is frothy on top.
  • Now add the flour, salt, baking powder, coconut cream and olive oil. Stir with a wooden spoon until it becomes difficult, then turn the ball of dough out on a lightly floured surface (I just use my countertop). Knead the ball of dough for about 3-4 minutes, until the ball of dough is smooth and soft. If it is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  • Place the dough in a large bowl (I wipe out the first bowl I used), cover with a tea towel and let it rise until it doubles in size, about an hour to and hour and a half.
