Tuesdays With Dorie: Vegan Bagels October 16, 2012

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie I can actually post because it was VERY easy to make Vegan.

The recipe this week is being hosted by Heather at Heather’s Bytes, and she is throwing down Bagels. So if you want the recipe just swing on by Heather’s Bytes. The only thing that you have to do to make this recipe Vegan is to substitute the melted butter at the beginning of the recipe for vegetable oil and I didn’t use the egg whites to adhere toppings to the bagels. That is it.

The entire recipe does take some time to make.
Step 1: Make dough
Step 2: First Rise
Step 3: Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight
Step 4: Shape half of the dough
Step 5: Boil shaped dough, in small batches
Step 6: Bake bagels in oven.
Step 7: Repeat with other half of dough Steps 4-6
Step 8: EAT

I started this recipe last night and then discovered the refrigeration step and then had to modify my schedule for today so that I was able to boil/bake every thing up. Usually, I bake while my daughter takes her nap, but today she was very accommodating and let me bake while she played with her toys this morning. Granted she did get curious and wanted to know what I was up to, so I showed her the bagels boiling. She is only 16 months, so she wasn’t too interested. I think she was wondering why I wasn’t in the same room with her.

After the bagels baked and finished cooling, I picked up one right off the rack and ate it plain. Emma insisted on having some so we sat on the couch together and I gave her the inside of the bagel. It tasted great. Actually better than any bagel I have ever tasted, and I will definitely be making these again when I have the time.
