Blissful Blueberry Bagels

My sister loves blueberry bagels. The purple kind. Especially topped with bright pink strawberry cream cheese. So in honor of her week off before her next semester, and as a stress reliever for my own midterm week I decided to make my very own bagels for the first time ever. The recipe below says to place the bagels into boiling water. This is because it provides that tough crust which bagels have, while still preserving the soft and fluffy inside. If I were to redo this recipe, I would definitely add more blueberries to make the bagels look more purple! I also tried to make strawberry cream cheese, but failed. I think it might have been the cream cheese I used or that I didn’t use fresh strawberries. Nevertheless, it was great having fresh bagels out of the oven on a morning of a snow day! I guess it’s time to […]

Best. Bread. Ever. Easy, Quick Vegan Whole Wheat Flatbread

Best bread ever. I repeat. BEST. BREAD. EVER. Okay, so normally pita bread is my favorite( blame my Greek roots) bread, but this is pretty damn close. Everything about it is perfect. Its crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and is just plain out amazing. Also it’s National Cheese Day and this pairs insanely well with cheese! I’m planning on keeping one of these flatbreads for a sandwich tomorrow. This takes me back to summers in Greece when they always serve pita with everything. Instead of a baguette, it would be pita. And the way they grilled it and seasoned it, to die for! You must try this recipe! it takes less than a half an hour since this doesn’t involve yeast–meaning none of that boring rising time! Plus, it is vegan!  Use it as a pizza crust, or for a flatbread sandwich, or just to much on! When […]

Vegan Pretzel Bread

I’ve been telling myself for quite some time now that I would make pretzel bread, but It’s been such a loooooonnnnnnnnnggggggggggg time since I have had any sort of pretzel bread or roll or anything pretzel. So I was craving it and found this really good recipe which is vegan! Actually, I made this with yeast that expired a few years ago( whoops, didn’t check the ingredients before I started cooking)…… but they still turned out pretty good! And, yes I will admit I did eat some of the dough 🙂 If you have seen my previous post, you would know I made falafels out of these. Vegan Pretzel Bread Yields 4-6 small loafs 1 tablespoon maple syrup ½ package (1/2 tablespoon) active dry yeast ¾ cup water (1/4 cup for proofing, ½ cup for dough) 2 tbsp oil (olive, canola, whatever) 2 cups all-purpose white flour 1/2 tsp salt […]

Super Quick Vegan Coconut Oil Biscuits!

Who can eat soup without a moist, fluffy piece of bread to go along with it? I know I can’t, so when I made this soup, I just had to make these! Did I mention they were vegan? Not to mention, how simple these are with only three ingredients! Vegan Coconut Oil Biscuits  Yields 12 Biscuits 2 cups self-rising flour 1/4 cup coconut oil (solid, not melted) 3/4 cup coconut milk or any milk( I used soy) In a bowl, combine the flour and oil using a fork, so the mixture is fine crumbs. Mix in the milk, so soft dough forms. Knead until combined, making sure not to over-mix. Turn the dough out onto a cutting board that has been lightly dusted with flour. Gently roll the dough out until it reaches a 1/2-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter (mine was a 2-inch circle) to cut out the biscuits, […]
