Vegan, garlicky, cheesy deliciousness – these plant-based knots are sure to be the hit of your next pizza party.
For the dough:
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 2 1/4 tsp fast rising yeast
- 4+ cups flour
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
For the buttery topping:
- 3 tbsp vegan butter
- 1 tbsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp parsley
- Vegan parmesan cheese
- Marinara sauce
- In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Whisk together and let sit for ~10 minutes, until the yeast is dissolved and it starts to bubble.
- In the meantime, combine 4 cups of flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix together.
- Add the activated yeast mixture to the flour mixture and mix to combine. You want a soft dough, however it should not be so sticky that it sticks to your finger if you touch it. Add more flour, as necessary, to ensure this doesn't happen.
- Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, then form into a ball.
- Grease a large stainless steel bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil and place the kneaded dough into the bowl. Toss the dough a couple of times so that it is completely covered in olive oil.
- Cover the bowl with a clean towel and set aside for one hour, until it doubles in size.
- Once the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 400°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Lightly dust a large surface with flour and place the dough on top. Using a rolling pin, gently roll out the dough into a rounded rectangular shape that is ~1 inch thick.
- Cut the dough vertically, creating strips that are ~1 inch wide (should create about 12 strips of dough).
- Horizontally (and evenly), cut the dough two more times, creating about 36 small strips (picture above for reference).
- Time to knot! Gently roll and stretch the dough until they are about 4-5 inches long and you can gently tie into a knot.
- Continue to knot each piece of dough and place on the lined baking sheets.
- Gently brush each knot with a bit of olive oil and place into the oven. Let cook for 12-16 minutes until they are cooked through and lightly browned on top.
- Meanwhile, make the buttery topping. Mix together the melted butter, garlic salt and dried herbs in a small bowl and set aside.
- When the knots are done cooking, take out of the oven and brush with the buttery herb topping.
- Transfer to a plate or platter and top with vegan parmesan cheese.
- Serve with marinara or dip of choice – they are also delicious with vegan ranch!

I need to try these ASAP!!! They look so good!
No one can resist garlic knotts. It’s great to see a receipe that my family can enjoy and feel good about. Can’t wait to make them!
This looks so good!!
I truly CANNOT WAIT to make these – I’ve had it bookmarked since you posted it. I’ve been dying for some good garlic knots ever since going vegan, and all the recipes I look up seem so complicated. These look easy enough and SO DELICIOUS.
This recipe was actually very simple to make. My family loved them!
delicious! my fav
I want to give these a try!! They look delicious!!
Been meaning to make these for a while now. Can’t wait to
I actually made these and they were so popular that I barely had any myself. Now I know to make twice the amount that I think I’ll need. Waaay better than the ones I get from my local pizza shop!
Can I use olive oil instead of butter for garlic topping?
That should work fine!
Can’t wait to try this recipe out! ??
I NEED TO MAKE THESE ASAP!!!!!!!!!
I am nervous to make my own dough but really want to try these!
My dough was very sticky. Is that suppose to happen ? Also, gluten free option is possible too?
Can you make these with gluten free flour?
We’ve never tried making these with gluten free flour, so we aren’t exactly sure how they would turn out! Let us know if you try 🙂
These were so simple to make, a great last minute addition to our dinner party. Everyone loved them!
Made these and they came out delicious, my go to party/gathering snack!!
I NEED to try making these I love anything that has garlic and bread. Have to make these with my roomies one night. Can not wait
Ahh these are so delicious!!!
I Love Six Vegan Sisters! ❤️?
These look so good that I can’t taste them already. Gonna try to tackle this for the weekend.
OK this is a MUST try, I missed my super bowl opportunity to test out these garlic knots but they would be perfect for my bachelor finale appetizer party!! I can’t wait to try this recipe & have a new go to appetizer!!
These are so delicious and so easy to make!
Unbelievable goodness ??
honestly i’ve been seeing these all over instagram & they did not disappoint!!! they are so good!
Amazing, easy to make, and delicious!
So glad you loved the garlic knots — thanks for trying our recipe!
These look perfect for my son who just had to become dairy free! Can these be frozen before or after baking?
That’s awesome! We hope your son loves them! 🙂 We would recommend freezing after baking.
Hi! Can these be made without fast rising yeast? Just regular yeast?
Hi! We’ve never tried, but we think this should work. You may need to let the dough rise for a bit longer though. Let us know if you try it and if it works out for you! 🙂
Just made these, they were delicious! The garlic salt I had made them too salty so next time I’ll use a little less. Will definitely recommend to others!
YAY! 🙂 Glad you loved them!
Mine came out a bit salty but wow so delicious still!! I ended up just dabbing them on my spaghetti and it took the saltiness away 🙂
Delicious!! The seasoning was spot on. My kids are now obsessed and I am making ANOTHER batch of them tonight to go with our dinner. These are going to be a staple in our house. We have everything in our house already for the recipe which is another bonus, no random ingredient. (If you are Vegan, you know you have bulk cashew and nutritional yeast (cheese) plus your spice cabinet is stocked!) Thanks for this amazing recipe.
Just made these! Time consuming, a little. Delicious? Yup!!! Thanks for the recipe! 🙌🏽
We have made these so many times now – our friends always request them when we have them over too. So delicious, super easy, and fun to make.
Do you know how the calories count?
Wow these are so amazing. My one suggestion is to make sure that your yeast makes little bubbles and activates the right way. As someone who doesn’t use or know much about yeast, the first time I made these I didn’t activate the yeast properly and so then the dough didn’t double in size. It’s kinda hard to make the dough into knots so we usually just make breadsticks. They’re so buttery and pair perfectly with marinara sauce or vegan parmesan. Add this recipe to your arsenals of amazing appetizers that will please vegans and non-vegans alike!
Made these a few times, I also add nutritional yeast in thr flour, along with garlic powder. When kneading dough, just add minimal water to account for more dry ingredients. Boosts flavor.
Made these but the 1tbsp garlic salt is too much. We use 1 tsp and it’s plenty salty enough. Great recipe
