Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like garlic knots?  There is nothing to dislike about them.  They are soft inside with a crunchy exterior, covered in garlic (vegan) butter and herbs.  They are wonderful plain or dunked into your favorite homemade marinara.

Preparation

  1. Combine yeast and warm water in a measuring cup and stir.  Set aside while you gather your other ingredients.
  2. Into the bowl of a stand mixer combine flour, salt, garlic powder and herbs.  Add the yeast and water mixture and mix on low speed until all the flour is moistened.  Turn mixer off and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.  The dough will be sticky at this point.
  3. Turn mixer to medium speed and mix for 3-4 minutes.  Turn the dough out onto a lightly found surface and knead a couple of times to smooth it out and shape into a ball.  The dough should be tacky but not super sticky.
  4. If it is sticky, sprinkle a tablespoon of flour over the dough and knead it in.
  5. Place the dough into a non stick sprayed bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel.  Set aside to rise for 1 hour.
  6. Once the dough has risen, turn out onto a floured work surface.  Roll dough into an 8X8 square as best you can.  Using a kitchen knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough in half down the middle.  Then cut each half in half giving you 4 long pieces.  Then cut each quarter in half, giving you 8 strips of dough.  Shape into knots (detailed above). Place knots onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, cover with a damp towel, and set aside to rise again for about 30-45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 400°F
  8. For the garlic butter:  Melt the buttery spread in the microwave until completely melted.  Add Sriracha, salt, garlic and parsley and stir to combine.
  9. When knots are ready to go into the oven, gently brush a little bit of garlic butter over each.  There should be a little left for you to brush immediately after baking.
  10. Bake the knots in a 400°F oven for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.  The knots should be golden brown on top and on the bottom.  When you remove the knots from the oven, immediately brush with the remaining garlic butter.  Serve warm.
