Is Naan Bread Suitable For Vegans? (Here’s All You Need To Know)

Don’t tell me. You love Indian food and naan bread is your favorite.

And since bread is usually vegan, you have your hopes up for this one.

Well, unfortunately, traditional naan bread is not vegan.

Naan bread is made with at least four non-vegan ingredients:

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Ghee (butter)

If you go to an Indian restaurant, that is probably the version you will find.

Though, don’t feel let down. If you absolutely love naan bread, you can either make your own vegan version or find vegan naan bread in a local supermarket.

Where to Buy Vegan Naan Bread

Ingredients: Organic wheat flour (organic wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, organic soybean oil, cultured wheat flour, organic sugar, sea salt, baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, cornstarch, monocalcium phosphate), organic wheat gluten, organic carrot powder, guar gum, yeast, citric acid, ascorbic acid.

This was the first legitimate vegan naan bread I found.

It was the first option that popped up with a quick Google search. According to the ‘Stonefire’ website, you can find this brand in the following franchises:

  • Walmart
  • Costco
  • Albertsons Foods
  • Food Lion Grocery Stores
  • Ralphs
  • Peterson’s
  • and more.

Ralphs even has it available on its website.

Though from experience, I always prefer to visit a physical store because there’s a higher chance you’ll find it there than online

Although if you want to save money, there’s an even better way of eating vegan naan bread.

It might not help you save time, but it’s healthier.

Vegan Naan Bread Recipes

Making naan bread seems like something only a cook would be able to do, but it’s not that complicated. In fact, some even compare it to making pancakes.

It’s quite easy to make vegan pancakes but I can tell you naan bread takes considerably longer.  Additionally, there’s a couple of people who can do it 100x better than me.

Here’s a list of recipes you can use to make vegan naan bread at home:

They are all based on yeast, flour, salt, and oil. All plant-based ingredients.

Expect to invest a bit of time trying to replicate any one of the recipes. And rest assured, they all try to stick to Indian roots, so you’re in for a nostalgic and amazing treat!

Thanks for reading! Stay vegan, stay you. 🙂
