Vegan parsley and garlic flat bread naan

Vegan Garlic and Parsley Naan

I just love this bread! It goes with absolutely everything. The parsley and garlic add so much flavor and together with the soft and fluffy texture of the bread, it can't really get any better than that.

It is fairly easy to make. Like all yeast-based foods, it requires some resting time so prep time is about 2 hours but the work itself is minimal!

You can make the dough in the after noon and have a great flatbread ready for dinner. This flatbread is a nice complimentary addition to your main dish, whether you are eating  your favorite curry, hummus or even soup

I'm a big fan of Yogurt, luckily the vegan brands that are available are deliciously beneficial. Most Vegan Yogurt brands, or even homemade vegan yogurt are made from plant milks and provide a good source of protein and live active cultures. The average unsweetened vegan yogurt offers nutritional benefits, such as protein, unsaturated fats, live active cultures, and a small amount of fiber.


I love using fresh parsley, I love it's smell, I love the taste and I love the benefits of fresh organic parsley - It is a low-calorie, nutrient-dense herb. It’s particularly rich in vitamins K, A, and C. 


  • The Naan can be made without the garlic or the parsley, if you prefer a plain taste to your flat bread.
  • If you want to try adding bigger pieces like raw onion rings or sundried tomatoes, simply place the naan on the pan and press down the toppings before the dough dries out. 


Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking... 

Recipe's song:

This recipe is fun, quick and delicious and for some reason it makes me think of this song, Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden (maybe the black hole reminds me of the black spots... who knows:))

Let's start:

Prep time: 2 hrs.
Cooking time: 4 min. each
Difficulty: simple Servings8 Naans (75 grams approx.)


Tools: Ingredients:
  1. In a mixing bowl, pour the warm water and add the yeast. Leave for at least 10 minutes in room temperature, until the mixture starts to foam.
  2. Add the yogurt and oil and whisk together.
  3. Add the flour, the sugar, the salt, the garlic and the parsley and mix until the dough is combined.
  4. The dough will be a little sticky and wet. If too sticky, add a little flour.
  5. Form a loose ball and place in a clean bowl. cover with a damp towel or plastic film and set a timer. The dough will probably need between 1.5 -2 hours in room temperature (up to four in the fridge).
  6. The dough is ready when it doubles in size.
  7. Cut and weight the dough into 8 even pieces (approx 75 g. If you want a larger bread and you have a big pan, you can cut into 6 larger pieces).
  8. Form each piece into a ball and place on a floured surface to rest. cover again with a towel and leave the dough to rest for another 15 minutes.
  9. After 15 minutes, roll each ball with a rolling pin into a flat circle.
  10. Roll thick for a thicker bread, I like to have it pretty this with thick edges.
  11. Heat you iron pan, make sure the pan is completely hot, otherwise your flat bread will stick to it.
  12. You can spray a little oil on the pan, but honestly, if the pan is hot enough there is no need for oil.
  13. Place the flat circle on the pan and let it dry for approx. 2 minutes. The dough will get dry in it's edges and form bubbles all over.
  14. Turn the naan bread and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side.
  15. Place the ready naan on a plate and cover with a dry towel (will prevent it from drying out) until ready to eat.
  16. Enjoy!

@Adriana Kassay Thank you for your suggestion. I realize now my measurements might be somewhat confusing to a lot of my readers. I will do my best to add American-friendly measurements.

Hi you’re recipe looks Amazing! Just wondering if you might consider adding measurements in American standard instead of metric?? It’s just so much easier for us older folk. I would love to try your recipes !! Thanks for considering?!🌷😊
