Garlic Knots


Fresh pizza dough is a versatile ingredient to have in your fridge. It can be turned into savory or sweet snacks with very little effort. Of course you can always knead the dough yourself from scratch; but, I simply can’t pass up buying the fresh dough available at my local grocer. These are Garlic Knots, and they couldn't be simpler to make. A little buttery and garlicky, you will love this fabulous home made snack knots! After shaping and baking the dough, just toss them with melted garlic butter mixture.


Recipe (slightly) adapted from My Kitchen Snippets

Garlic Knots

Ingredients

1 Packet (310-320g) of Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)
Olive Oil, for rolling the dough
1 ½ to 2 Tbsp Garlic Butter
½ Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp of Chopped Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 375˚F/190˚C.

Divide the dough into 10 pieces, and roll each with a little oil into a rope about 8 to 9 inches long; tie each rope into a knot, take the end lying underneath the knot and bring it over to the top and tuck it into the center and take the other end lying over the knot and tuck it underneath and into the center.


Place the knots on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the knots for about 18 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the garlic butter and olive oil and melt in the microwave oven on high for about 1 minute. Remove the knots from the oven, and toss them with the melted garlic butter, sprinkle with chopped parsley, and season with sea salt and black pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  7. @Anonymous: I used "Lactantia" brand garlic butter. If the store-bought it's not available, then use regular butter and mix with garlic powder, or freshly chop garlic.

  8. This sounds great! I recently got some Himalayan pink salt and organic peppercorns from Sustainable Sourcing https://secure.sustainablesourcing.com and I'll have to try them out in this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Oh my goodness, I haven't made garlic knots in ages and start craving some after looking at yours. They are picture perfect.
    If I'm in a hurry and don't have any herb garlic butter made I usually rely on KerryGold Garlic & Herb Butter.

    Happy weekend Angie :)

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
