Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Since making our vegan take on traditional Indian naan bread a while back, I’ve significantly decreased my consumption of gluten, so naan was off the table for a while. Moment of silence as we grieve. 

The gluten-free alternatives I’d tried up to this point were admittedly lackluster. I missed the pillowy, stretchy naan bread infused with garlic alongside my beloved curries, so I got to work. And the results were incredible. 

Friends, behold, gluten-free vegan naan made in 1 bowl, in 20 minutes, with simple ingredients!

We find making cauliflower wings works best as a four-step process:
