Super Quick & Easy No-kneading Garlic Naan Bread


Finding a vegan Naan bread at your local supermarket or favourite Indian restaurant can be challenging – there is milk or milk powder in 90% of them. So stop searching and try making it yourself. My Garlic Naan Bread recipe is so easy – you won’t believe it! It won’t take you long and you don’t need a traditional clay oven to make vegan naan bread and still it becomes wonderfully light and fluffy. This recipe makes 4 Naan Breads but I often double the recipe. If you don’t eat all of it in one go, you can freeze it for up to 1 month.

Prep time Cook time Total Time
5 min 5 min 20  min


  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • handful of coriander (chopped)
  • 1 cup lukewarm soy milk
  • 2tbsp plain soya yoghurt
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of margarine or vegan butter (melted)
  • 1.5-2 cups white (spelt) flour
  • 1 sachet of active dry yeast (-7g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • Optional: melted vegan butter for brushing (you’ll get a nice buttery-Naan) if you want a super fluffy consistency add 1/2 tsp of baking powder as well!


  1. Whisk 1/2 cup of soy milk and vinegar together in a cup. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of the warm soy milk, yeast and sugar. Allow to stand for 5 min
  3. Pour together into the medium bowl. Stir in all the remaining ingredients and start mixing (I use the hocks of my hand mixer) until the dough becomes elastic but smooth
  4. Cover the bowl with a kitchen bowl and leave it for 10mins (ideally until it doubles in size – but I usually never have the time to do that)
  5. Lightly butter a large nonstick skillet and place over medium-high heat
  6. Once hot, pour or scoop of your dough into the skillet
  7. Allow to bake for 2 minutes until the dough becomes puffy and golden, then flip it and bake 1 more minute
  8. Repeat for the remaining dough portions
  9. Transfer to a clean tea towel to keep warm. Serve hot, and sprinkle with salt & coriander and brush with some vegan butter. Enjoy!
