2 Ingredient Vegan Naan - no yeast!


This recipe is so quick and easy and is made from only two ingredients you’ve probably got in your kitchen right now!

Naan are a soft, chewy delicious bread originally created over 2,500 years ago in India and it is traditionally baked in a tandoor, or cylindrical clay oven. Now I’m probably not the only one who hasn't for a tandoor hanging around in their kitchen, but worry not as we can create a delicious vegan naan with little more than some enthusiasm and a frying pan!

Despite the immense climb of vegan food in supermarket chains in recent years, one thing I still find it difficult to source is vegan naans! The only one I'm able to find is a ‘free from’ in tescos that I find to be bitty and of a strange texture. The main reason many naan’s aren;t suitable for vegans is because they contain yoghurt, so it seems pretty easy that we can just swap that out for a vegan yoghurt and be half way there to fresh, warm, homemade vegan naan breads.

If you’re in a rush, your two ingredients naan’s will go down a treat, but if you’ve got a little more time and a few more ingredients you can create something really special. Brushing your naan’s with a vegan margarine or olive oil once cooked, and topping with some fresh herbs and garlic will create a truly irresistible accompaniment for any indian dish. For a real infusion of flavour you can add some garlic, seasalt or herbs to your mix when combining too.

Some ideas of additional ingredients that would go great include:

  • Coriander

  • Dried herbs

  • Fresh or dried garlic

  • Olive oil

  • Vegan margarine

  • Additional vegan yoghurt to top

  • Sea salt

Yield: 2 portions

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 200g / 1.25 cups self raising flour

  • 200g / 0.8 cups vegan yoghurt

  • Optional: coriander, garlic, dried herbs or oil to top




  1. Weigh out you flour in a bowl, then add in your yoghurt. Mix together with a spatula until it comes together then tip out onto a floured surface. If your mix is a little too sticky, now’s the time to add some more flour.

  2. Divide your mix into 4 equal sections using a knife, taking one at a time, roll them out into an oval shape about half a centimeter thick.

  3. Heat up a dry pan on a medium heat, then cook each naan for a couple of minutes on each side until they’re nicely browned

  4. Serve with your favourite dish or enjoy as a delicious snack!
