Garlic Cheese Biscuits

What you need: 

1 1/4 cups plain nondairy milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
3 cups unbleached all purpose flour (whole wheat can be used)
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons vegan margarine, divided (Earth Balance works best)
3-5 ounces vegan cheese, shredded (Follow Your Heart worked really well for me)
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, divided

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and grease a cookie sheet. Add vinegar to milk, and let curdle. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add 3 tablespoons margarine and cut it into the mixture, until the mixture is somewhat crumbly. Add cheese, sour milk, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and mix until a ball of dough forms.
3. Let the dough sit for about 5 minutes. Drop onto prepared cookie sheet into balls of about 2" in diameter, be sure to not lay them too close together.
4. Bake for about 14 minutes; they don't brown too much on the tops but keep a close eye on the bottoms during the last few minutes of baking.
5. Meanwhile, melt the remainder of the margarine (2 tablespoons), and add the rest of the garlic (1/2 teaspoon) to the melted margarine. As soon as the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the garlic butter mixture onto the tops of all the biscuits.
Serve hot, goes good on the side of pretty much anything!

I've been craving these. Thank you for the recipe. They are a big hit with our family. ;)b


These are sooo yummy. I don't like vegan cheese, but I can't get enough of these!


So I totally winged it last night with these...halved the recipe, but couldn't find my tablespoon anywhere, so I just guessed with my measurements (which I've learned the hard way doesn't always work when baking)...but they turned out great!  I should have used more garlic, but I still gobbled them up.  I also think I left them in the oven a lot longer than recommended.  These will definitely become a staple with chili!  Thanks!


These were the perfect accompaniment to 3 Bell Pepper Chili. I made them as called for & they turned out great. I will probably add a little bit more salt next time though.


We'll also try using other herbs too.


These are good!  Even without the cheese, they are great if you want to throw together some quick and easy biscuits.


Thought I would do a little soy cheese  tonight, I cant help but crave it so much.  So I admit it was pretty darn delish.  ;)b


I burnt the bottom a bit, but still tasty. I've already eaten 4!
