Recipe Instructions

step 1

Grate the zucchini with a cheese grater, leave them to drain over a strainer for 20 minutes, and then squeeze them to remove excess water.

Next, combine the courgettes with wholemeal flour, white flour, lukewarm water, 1 tbsp of oil, 1 tsp of salt, sugar, and dry yeast in a bowl.

step 2

Knead the ingredients for 10-15 minutes until the dough comes together.

Let the dough prove for 1 hour covered with a clean towel in a greased bowl. The dough should double in volume.

step 3

Knead the dough for a minute to remove excess air and divide it into 80g (3 oz) pieces.

Roll each dough piece into two 20 cm (8 inches) rods, pinch the ends together on one side, then twist the rods around each other, and wrap the twisted shape around itself. Finally, pinch the ends on the other side together to keep the shape when baking (1).

Prove the bread knots for 20 minutes covered over a baking tray lined with parchment paper (2).


step 4

Brush the bread rolls with 2 tbsp of oil mixed with garlic powder, black pepper, and rosemary. 

Bake them in the oven at 200°C (390°F) for 15-20 minutes until golden.

Enjoy these delicious zucchini garlic bread knots still warm with this delicious soup or this crunchy salad!


  • Make sure the zucchini bread dough is soft and a bit sticky and, if needed, add flour or water to reach the right consistency.

  • When proving the dough, keep it in a warm place, like inside the oven with the light turned on or under a wool blanket. Yeast loves warmth!

  • When shaping the bread knots, keep the other dough pieces under cling film to prevent them from drying out.

  • If you don’t have time for kneading and proving, you can prepare the dough with a bread machine.
