It has been raining and raining and raining... A severe weather warning is a good excuse to stay in and bake and cook! I'm lucky enough to do just that this week, only going to the grocery store is the unpleasant bit. Today I'm sticking to the basics, but very tasty basics at that matter!
These garlic knots are a great side to pasta dishes, soups, stews and salads. I got the idea for them in the beautiful cookbook The Forest Feast (p. 28-29) by Erin Gleeson. I think that this book is a great purchase because of the photos and artwork alone, but the recipes are mouth watering as well. All the ones I've tried so far, have also been quite simple, which is nice.
Here is how I made the garlic knots:
Spelt pizza dough (recipe here)
2 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp parsley
Roll the pizza dough into a long thin rod and tie knots from the pieces of the rod.
Bake the knots in the oven at 200C for about 15-20 minutes.
Heat the butter and finely chopped garlic in a frying pan.
Turn the knots in the pan for a couple of minutes, sprinkle some parsley on them and serve.
