Gluten Free Garlic Twists are a great appetizer with, well, a twist! Serve them as a side dish or an appetizer, these won’t last long!
I love being able to dual purpose a recipe, especially one that can make me garlic twists! Garlic twists are the perfect appetizer or snack. They are brushed with a savory blend of fresh garlic, parsley and butter. They also store great in the fridge and can be warmed up the next day in the toaster. If you are really looking to get knotty(yes, garlic knot pun) add some shredded or grated cheese on top and place them under the broiler. These little twists taste like they came right out of your local pizza place, without the gluten and dairy!
- This dough does not have enough structure to form a knot, but it works beautifully as a twist!
- Do not line the baking sheet with parchment paper, the oil and bare cookie sheet is what crisps the garlic knots!
- Psyllium husk powder adds great bread-like texture while baking, especially in gluten free items! I found my psyllium husk powder in the supplement section of my grocery store!
- If the dough is too sticky to handle use a combination of flour and olive oil. Too much flour will dry out the dough!
