If you have read a few of my last posts, you know that we have spent
We, on the other hand, are pretty much in “it’s their house, their property, they have built it so it’s their decision really” mood, but come on. Can one really be indifferent? Not wanting to keep this gem in the family? Yup, I know. Anyhow. Their retirement checks are too thin and they feel like they would feel safer if to had a “rainy day” stash for life, medicines, doctors… because
So! The house is on sale, I’m not too eager to see it gone but I’ll see what I’ll see, and everything has its own reason. I feel like I should wish for my own house, not someone other’s, right? Even if this house is in Piran bay, with the endless blue view
So, being in this house for awhile, I had to cook, right? And there is always some bread. The thing is, in this little place, Crveni Vrh it’s called (meaning Red peak) there is only one little shop and a very expensive one. All the big shopping centres are in nearby city Umag, a few kilometres away. So you have to pack the kids and the dog and see that cat is inside and having plenty of water, sit in the car and you know.
That’s why I baked so many bread while we were there. I had time, a nice bag of flour and an excuse that storebought bread is
I decided to put this Vegan Yeast Naan on my blog because it turned out that my Instagram peeps adored it! It’s in my stories too, under Quick recipe section, but in Croatian. Therefore, here is an English one.
Therefore I baked and baked. I have a big arsenal of bread recipes, some here on my blog and many still in my little notes and scrapbooks, but mostly I baked this vegan yeast

This Simple Vegan Yeast Naan is easy, hearty and cheap.
You can make it with a wholewheat flour too, the amounts would be pretty much the same. I had strong bread flour but you can use all-purpose scrapbooks. Here is my Wholewheat naan baked in an oven.
For the gluten-free version, you would need a different amount of liquid. The dough should be on the softer side but not sticky.
You can bake it in an oven too, but then it won’t be as soft, rather as pita bread.
Here is my beloved Garlic flatbread recipe!
And what’s most important, your family will adore it and ask for more!
Simple Vegan Yeast Naan
serves 4 – 6
1 kg flour / 2 pounds, ca. 7 cups
2 tbsp instant yeast
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 tbsp oil
ca 650 ml / ca. 2 3/4 cups tepid water
dried herbs (optional, I used dried parsley)
Make the dough: it should be on the softer side but not sticky. If it gets a bit sticky, don’t add more flour, it’ll lose most of its stickiness during the rise. Cover the bowl with a cloth or a lid and leave for a nice 30 mins, 45 in the winter.
Once risen, throw the dough out to the lightly floured surface, knead a few times and make ca. 20 balls. Roll them out to be as thick as your little finger.
Heat your skillet on medium heat. It can be a grill or iron skillet, pancake skillet, or I don’t know, just get a skillet you can use 🙂
If you prefer it that way and if your skillet is a non-stick one, then just cook the naan for two mins on each side or until it gets all nicely bubbled and brown specks. You can use a few drops of oil
Once cooked, put clean, damp cloth over the naan stacked on your plate and cover everything with foil or put in the plastic bag so it stays soft and pliable.
Serve cooled, don’t eat it hot because it could cause hurting in your tummy.
And a little warning – this is a BIG batch. One kilogram of flour. But this naan is so naughty and tempting that you’ll probably want to eat more than you should. Would 4 people eat 1 kilogram worth of bread in just one meal? I know. Therefore, this is bread, as delicious and luscious as it is, but it’s bread so eat more of “the rest of the meal” than bread itself. But don’t worry. Naan stays pretty polite packed in plastic foil and more than anything loves to be shared with others!
