Soft & Chewy Naan | Vegan and Gluten-Free

This vegan and gluten-free naan is soft, chewy, and packed with lots of those beloved air bubbles. The dough is made with a combination of brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, psyllium husk powder, yeast, and almond yogurt. This naan is delicious topped with a drizzle of coconut oil, sprinkling of salt, and garnish of fresh cilantro; however, it also makes the most incredible wrap since it's pliable enough to bend in half without tearing or falling apart.

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 ¼ cups brown rice flour
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt or more if desired
  • ¼ cup plain almond yogurt

Instructions

  • Add the warm water, yeast, and agave to a bowl. Gently stir and let stand for five minutes.
  • Add the brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, psyllium husk, and sea salt to a large bowl and gently mix.
  • Pour the warm water and yeast mixture over the dry ingredients, drop in the almond yogurt, and begin mixing with your hands. Form the mixture into a ball and turn out onto a clean counter.
  • Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes, form into a ball, and return to the mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with a cloth, move to a warm area in your kitchen and let the dough rise for 1 hour.
  • After the dough has risen, divide it into four pieces.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat until very hot.
  • One at a time, roll out the pieces of dough until ⅛-inch thick. Gently transfer the dough to the hot skillet and cook on one side for 2 to 2 ½ minutes, flip and cook on the other side for 2 to 2 ½ minutes. If your skillet isn't well-seasoned and is prone to sticking, add a dollop of coconut oil to the pan before placing the dough in it.
  • Remove the cooked naan from the pan and place on a tray. Repeat with all pieces of dough.
  • Drizzle the naan with coconut oil and add a sprinkling of sea salt.
  • Enjoy and store leftovers at room temperature.
