Vegan Biscuits

Once again, I’ve been on the prowl for a good recipe that I can “veganize”. I recently stumbled across this Yeast Biscuit recipe and thought I would try altering it. What do you know? It was fantastic. Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits!

Here’s the recipe (and of course my little girl helped make the biscuits).

The Ingredients
1 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp organic cane sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup plain (unsweetened) rice or soy milk + 1 Tbsp vinegar

The Process
Dissolve the yeast in water, set aside.

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients in the order given.

Cut in shortening until it’s the size of small Lima beans.

Mix rice/soy milk and vinegar together in a small bowl. Add to the large bowl.

Add the yeast mixture to the large bowl. Mix well.

Cover bowl with a warm, wet towel and let sit until ready to use. (At least 1 hour, but it is fine to let sit for a couple of hours). Dough will be very sticky.

Scrape out onto a well floured board. Flip over and knead lightly (4-6 times).

Roll out and cut with a biscuit cutter. We didn’t have a biscuit cutter so we used the mouth of a glass.

Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise slightly (10-30 minutes).

Bake at 400 F until light brown (10-15 minutes).
