Vegan Homemade Soft Bread

bread

Hey guys! How did you enjoy the Vegan bread video? It tasted so good with the cherry preserves on top and it is strange because I am not a fan of cherries but I must admit having a hot and super soft bread coming out of the oven makes all the difference.

Okay, enough of me and cherries (lol) let’s go straight to the recipe.

INGREDIENTS

4 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

4 teaspoons of sugar

2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast

1 3/4 cups of hot water

METHOD

In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Mix thoroughly. Very slowly add the hot water (no boiling!). Mix well with a spoon or spatula. At this point, you need to add the olive oil and continue mixing. Knead the dough inside the bowl until all the flour mixture is well combined. Once that happens, transfer dough into a light floured surface and knead until soft and elastic. Place dough into a greased bowl, cover and let it rise for 40 minutes.

After the resting period is over, transfer dough into a light floured surface again and start shaping the dough into a loaf form as shown in the video. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Bake at 375F for 35-40 minutes. Let it cool completely before slicing.

Recipe Alert! Soft Vegan Pepper Jack Cheese

Hi guys, here is the full recipe for the soft Vegan Pepper Jack cheese recipe. Hope you enjoy it!

INGREDIENTS

1 ½ cups of unsweetened almond milk

3-4 pimentos or any other mild hot pepper

¼ cup soaked cashews

1 ½ teaspoons of sea salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

5 tablespoons of tapioca starch

6 tablespoons of coconut oil

2 tablespoons of agar-agar powder

1 teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast

METHOD

Add everything to a blender except the pimentos. Toast the pimentos in a pan and then add them to the mixture. Pulse for a few seconds (you still need to have little pieces of pimento). Pour the mixture into a pan and heat until it become thickish but not completely. You need to keep an eye on it at all times because it will turn solid very quickly and it will be hard to handle!

In a greased plastic container add a few chopped toasted peppers. Then, pour the cheese mixture and put it in the fridge for at least 7 hours until it fully settles.

Unmold and enjoy! You can spread it on top of crackers or bread.
