Gluten Free Garlic Knots


Gluten-Free Garlic Knots

These sans gluten garlic hitches are the genuine article! Garlicky, delicate and stretchy very much like the full gluten garlic hitches you find at a pizza shop! Most awesome aspect? They are fast and simple to make!


Garlic Knots

1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour with xanthan gum we used GFJules, affiliate link

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup fat free Greek Yogurt drained of any excess liquid (we used Fage)

3 tablespoons butter

5-7 cloves garlic minced (or less according to taste but we like them garlicky!)

1-2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

Olive oil for brushing.

Quick Marinara Dipping Sauce

2- 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon dried minced garlic

1/4 -1/2 teaspoon salt

1 26 oz container Pomi Finely Chopped Tomatoes


Garlic Knots

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl add flour, baking powder and salt and mix or whisk well. Add the yogurt and mix until well combined. I used a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (amazon affiliate link) and found the extra mixing helped the texture of the gluten-free knots. The dough will pull away from the mixer when well combined.
  3. Place dough on a silicone rolling mat and using your dry hands coated with the tiniest bit of flour, roll into a ball and knead about 15 times. If it's too sticky you can add a little more flour but I find just having my hands coated in a little flour is enough.
  4. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, then roll each piece into a ball and then using both hands roll each ball into worm like strips, about 9 inches long (sometimes its a little less, don't worry!).Pro tip: I find it easiest to roll into the worm like shape by placing the ball on a silicone mat and rolling with both hands.
  5. Then tie or braid each strip into a “knot-like” ball and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Use a brush to lightly spread olive oil on the tops.
  7. Bake on the middle rack of the oven until golden about 20-22 minutes. Let them cool 5 minutes.
  8. While they cool, in medium nonstick skillet melt the butter, add the garlic and cook until golden, 2 minutes.
  9. Place the baked knots in the skillet with the melted butter and garlic and saute an additional minute. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley.
  10. Serve as is or with a quick marinara sauce.
  11. Enjoy!

Quick Marinara Dipping Sauce

  1. In a medium sauce pan, heat olive oil until shimmering, not burning.
  2. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds to a minute until fragrant and browning.
  3. Carefully add tomatoes (they may splatter if you add too quickly!). Season with salt and let simmer for 20 minutes or more.
