Vegan Naan Bread

This was my first time making naan bread. It turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself. My family gobbled it up in no time, so I know this recipe will be a definite repeat in our household.

Naan Bread

2/3 cup soy, almond, rice, or hemp milk
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. rapid yeast
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2/3 cup plain soy yogurt

In a mixing bowl, add sugar, milk, and yeast and stir well. Let it sit until it starts to activate and becomes frothy looking. In a separate bowl mix in all of the dry ingredients, then add milk mixture, oil, and soy yogurt. Mix until it is formed into a dough ball and knead for about 5 to 7 minutes. Put dough ball into a dry bowl, cover with a cloth and allow it to rise for 1-2 hours.

Preheat oven to broiling temperature. Knead the dough another minute and then divide it into two parts. Oil a baking sheet and roll out one of the parts into an oval shat about 1/4"-1/2" thick. place in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes until it puffs up and appears golden brown. Watch it closely so it does not burn. Once it puffs up, take it out, flip it, then return it to the oven for another minute. Remove and serve warm.
