  • 250 ml of plant based milk
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 egg wash or soy cream

  • Put the flour and salt in a bowl. Warm the milk lukewarm and add the butter and the yeast. Stir and add to the flour in the bowl. Knead to an elastic dough. Form a ball and let it rest covered in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.

  • Bring salted water to a simmer in a large saucepan. Divide the dough into 5-6 equal pieces.
  • Form into balls and press your index finger through the center of each ball or use a wooden spoon. (Look here)
  • In circular movements expand the hole and form into a ring. Put 1-2 bagels in the water for 30 seconds, bring them out with a foam trowel and drain a little bit, put them on a baking sheet.
  • Brush bagels with egg wash or soy cream and dipping into the seeds / grains.
  • Bake until golden brown for 22 minutes.


Let the bagels cool down a bit and then cover with avocado, watercress, many fresh herbs, tomatoes, (vegan) crumble egg or enjoy with home-made jam. The bagels taste fresh best. Otherwise, freeze and thaw in the toaster again.
