Make your own vegan bagels

I’m a vegetarian since 2013, but am also looking at vegan options more and more. I do make sure I get the proteins and vitamins I need, don’t worry. But, I also know that more people are looking for vegan recipes of certain snacks, so I’m here to provide the first one!


  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 ½ tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 ½ cups (500g) bread flour + more for kneading
  • 1 ½ tsp salt

To top with:

  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • Bagel seasoning

How to make:

  1. Mix together the sugar and 1/2 cup of warm water, then pour the yeast over it. Gently mix it together and then let it sit for 15 minutes to activate.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center, then add the yeast and sugar mixture along with 3/4 cup of the remaining warm water. Mix well until a smooth dough forms. If it’s too dry, add 1 tablespoon of the remaining 1/4 cup of warm water at a time if needed. If it’s too wet, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time if necessary.
  3. Flour a countertop or large cutting board, and knead the dough for 10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
  4. Wet the inside of a clean, large, non-metallic bowl with water, place the dough in it, and flip until the outside is moist. Cover with a damp tea towel and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled. Once risen, punch down the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Cover a baking tray with a silicone baking mat or baking paper and set aside. Remove the dough from the bowl and divide it into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Repeat with all of the dough.
  6. Cover your finger with flour, then press the center of the ball to form a ring. Stretch the dough balls into rings about ⅓ the diameter of the bagel and place on the baking tray. Cover with a damp towel and leave for 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat your oven to 425ºF, and bring a large pot of water to a boil. Get your herbs and almond milk ready, because you will need them afterwards.
  8. Once the water has boiled, turn the heat down to medium and use a slotted spoon to lower as many bagels that will comfortably fit in the water. Once they float to the top (a few seconds) cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook for 2 more minutes.
  9. Once all the bagels are cooked, place them on your parchment-lined baking tray. Brush the dough with almond milk and sprinkle with your herbs.
  10. Bake the bagels for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container for 4-5 days.

  1. Met mondmaster en veel kracht loop ik met de koffie en de koekjestrommel onder mijn armen naar jou toe. Dan zullen ze wel klaar zijn als ik aankom. 🤣
