No-Knead Rustic Bread with Roasted Garlic

No-Knead Rustic Bread with Roasted Garlic

I made this no-knead rustic bread with roasted garlic recently since we are spending all of our time at home these days. There’s something so comforting about warm homemade bread fresh from the oven and slathered with butter. I tried this loaf of rustic bread with roasted garlic and it was so delicious! We all loved the bits of garlic within each slice and the subtle flavor it gave the loaf. This no-knead rustic bread with roasted garlic paired perfectly with the slow-simmered soup and a green salad I served for dinner.

How to Make No-Knead Rustic Bread with Roasted Garlic

THE DAY BEFORE:

Make the roasted garlic–click here for the instructions. Once it has cooled, carefully remove the separate cloves and chop them up a bit.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and yeast. Add the warm water and chopped roasted garlic and use a rubber spatula to mix until combined. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and allow it to rest on your counter undisturbed for 18 to 24 hours.

THE DAY OF:

Place a round dutch oven along with a tight-fitting lid on the lowest rack of your oven. Preheat the oven (with the dutch oven & lid inside) to 450 degrees – about 20 minutes.

Dust the top of the dough with a few tablespoons of flour because it will be wet. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the dough & bowl, working your way around and underneath.

With a floured hand, pick up the dough and shape it into a ball.

Use oven mitts to remove the dutch oven lid then carefully place the balled loaf into the hot dutch oven (seam side down) and, using mitts, replace the HOT lid and slide the pot with the bread back into your oven. Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid and continue baking the bread for another 15 minutes or until the top of the loaf is golden brown and crusty.

Carefully remove the bread from the Dutch oven, it should come out easily, to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!

    1. Ashley Jo,

      I’ve never tried it with anything but bread flour so I’m not sure how it would turn out. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes.

    Pam,
    I made this and it was so easy! I am so proud of myself.
    We LOVED the deep bread flavor. I got up this in the dark of night at 2:30 am!
    and sliced off two more pieces. Buttered them. Ate them. It was so hard not to have more. Being full had nothing to do with my serious almost loosing the temptation to have more.
    Thank you!

    1. Anne,

      You should be proud!!! I’m always so proud of myself when I make homemade bread. Thanks for reminding me how tasty this one is–I might just prep a loaf tonight.
