Garlic Knots Recipe


For Dough

150 ml warm water
250 g flour (2 cups)
1 Tbsp instant active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil (or veg. oil)
½ Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried basil

For Garlic Coating

2 big cloves of garlic, crushed finely
1 Tbsp dried(or fresh) wild garlic (ramsons) or fresh parsley, chopped finely
3 Tbsp olive oil (or melted butter)
1-2 Tbsp grated Parmesan or hard cheese (optional)
A dash of salt


  1. Dissolve sugar in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients for dough. Add oil and slowly add the warm water while continuously stirring with a fork and then by hand until a dough is formed.
  2. Knead dough for 3-5 minutes until smooth. Form into a ball and brush with some oil then place it back in the bowl and cover with a cling wrap or clean kitchen towel. Let it rise until it doubled, depending on the temperature about 20-40 minutes.
  3. Punch it down and dump dough in a clean counter. I do not find the need to flour the counter, but if it is too sticky I brush the counter with a bit of oil instead. Using both hands, roll the dough into a cylinder about 4 cm (1½ inch) in diameter and 50 cm (20 inches) long. With a knife or dough cutter, cut the log into half then cut each half into 6 equal parts. Roll each piece into about 20 cm (7 inches) long and half inch thick (2½ cm) and make a knot. (Watch below video on how to make knots.) Place each knot on a lined baking sheet and once all are done cover them with kitchen towel to let them rise for the second time for about 30-40 minutes or just until almost doubled.
  4. Bake in preheated oven at 400°F/200°C for 12-15 minutes or until they turn golden.
  5. While knots are baking you can prepare the garlic coating. In a small saucepan combine olive oil or butter and garlic and and cook on medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes, longer if you want a milder garlic taste. Remove from heat and add the chopped wild garlic or parsley and salt.
  6. Once the knots are done remove from oven and place them in a big bowl while still warm then pour the garlic coating over the knots and toss until all knots are coated. Sprinkle with parmesan or grated hard cheese before serving. Best served warm.
