Roasted Garlic And Rosemary No Knead Bread
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 3 cups all purpose flour ( or use Baking flour)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 full heads garlic roasted
  • 2.5-3 tsp freshly chopped rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 cups water
  1. Roast the garlic. I have a step by step onHOW TO ROAST GARLIC in this post. Once roasted let it cool down completely. The garlic cloves will pop out of the skin just by giving them a slight push. Store them in an airtight container in fridge until ready to use.
  2. In a big bowl, add flour,salt and yeast. Stir using a spatula. To it add fresh rosemary and stir again. Now add oil and water. Mix using a spatula. All you need to do is using your spatula or spoon, stir it so the dough comes together. Remember NO kneading required!!
  3. Cover and let it sit overnight or good 8-24 hours. The dough will double up.
  4. When you are ready to bake, place a parchment paper on your work space. Coat it with flour. Transfer the dough from bowl to the parchment paper. It will be sticky. Now coat your hands with dry flour too. Bring the dough together in the form of a ball. Smash pieces of garlic and place them on top of the dough. Now using floured hands gently cover by pulling dough from bottom/sides. Repeat with another layer of garlic cloves and cover again with dough from bottom or sides. I ended up using about 1.5 head of garlic cloves.
  5. Cover with a towel and let it sit for second rise for 1.5 - 2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 450F and place your Dutch oven or baking pot in there to warm up too. After around 1.5-2 hrs, take out the pot from pre heated oven. Watch it will be extremely hot. Transfer the dough along with parchment paper inside. Bake covered for around 45 minutes and uncovered for 8-10 mins until top gets golden brown.

Ami says :
Lot of you have asked, is it really necessary to bake it in DUTCH OVEN? So my answer is you can get away by baking it another deep oven safe pot with a lid but DUTCH OVEN makes huge difference on how your bread turns out. It traps heat which cooks the bread evenly giving you crispy surface and since its well covered, the inside of bread is super soft. You don't necessarily have to invest in an expensive Dutch oven if you don't want to. I have had this Bella brand Dutch Oven for almost 8 years now and still love it.
