Vegan “Buttermilk” Biscuits

There is really no easier way to incorporate some vegan baking in your life than making biscuits. I’ve made them with coconut oil, olive oil and vegan butter and I like them all the ways. But, this recipe tastes the most like real buttermilk biscuits  and yay for that. These flaky, sky high biscuits are the perfect little additions to your breakfast, brunch or breakfast-for -dinner (the best meal on the planet). NOTE: Remember to keep your ingredients cold, as with any biscuits, but beware the vegan butter melts much quicker than regular butter. Refrigerate before adding your almond milk if you think it’s melting too fast. Work quickly but do not overwork. Stop mixing as soon as it’s combined. You want those puppies to rise, not bake into flat rounds of sadness. Recipe adapted from: Smitten Kitchen Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups of flour + more for the counter 1 tsp of sugar 1 tbs of baking powder 1 tsp of baking soda 3/4 tsp of salt 9 tbs of vegan butter (I use an Australian brand, Better Than Butter.

Olive Oil Drop Biscuits with Goat Cheese & Rosemary

Yes, biscuits made well are a thing of unbelievable perfection. However, we don’t always have time to make a “real” biscuit considering there are full episodes of Absolutely Fabulous on Youtube and stomachs are growling. And by proper biscuits, I do mean the kind where you need to roll out the dough, cut the dough, try to keep the dough cool and bake them until they glow in the oven’s warm love. But, forget about those when you don’t have time, because this drop biscuit recipe is absolutely fabulous itself! I didn’t have butter. But, I had olive oil, fresh rosemary and goat cheese. I knew I could whip something up because those ingredients are gold around these parts. These biscuits take about half the time as a traditional biscuit but hold amazing flavor and ….let’s be honest….when is a chunk of bread fresh out of the oven ever THAT bad?? Remember with a drop biscuit, the main thing is not to over-mix the batter and  just leave it be once it’s mixed. If you keep messing …

Vegan | Buttermilk Biscuits

You aren’t going to know that this are vegan except for the fact that you made them. Honest. Don’t even tell anyone, just serve them. Make it a big surprise later!  That was always my favorite trick when I sneaked veggies into something so my step dad and brother would try something I made.  (Sorry, guys!  You need your vegetables.) This is a great recipe. Super easy, as biscuits should be. Light and fluffy from the time they’re out of the oven. Great with both sweet and savory insides. The tricks are as such for wonderful biscuits:   1. Use ice cold butter. Pop your butter and flour in the freezer even for five minutes after you’ve broken it up.  2. Use cold, cold soy milk. 3. Don’t handle them too much. The reason I make mine square was so I didn’t need to handle them more to form them into circles. 4. Make sure they touch so they bake evenly.  Ingredients: 2 cups flour 1 Tbsp baking powder 1 Tsp baking soda 1/2 Tsp salt 4 Tbsp …
