Vegan Bagels

What you need: 

1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast or 1 (1/4 ounce) package for manual directions
3 cups unbleached white flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegan granulated sugar
sesame seeds, toasted, optional

What you do: 

[u]Bread Machine Directions[/u]:1. Except for sesame seeds, place all ingredients in bread machine and set for normal white vegan bread. (You may also add whatever seasoning you'd like for a flavored bagel at this step.)
2. Let the machine knead once and then turn off the machine and set a timer for 20 minutes. Grease a cookie sheet.
3. Cut into eight equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope about 1" thick, wet ends and stick together. Transfer to prepared cookie sheet, cover, and let rest for 15 minutes in a warm place. Preheat oven to 550 degrees F.
4. Fill a wok (or whatever you use) with about 3" water. Place vegan sugar in this water and bring to a boil. Add bagels for 1 minute, turning them as they boil. Drain.
5. Return dough to cookie sheet. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Bake for 15 minutes, or until desired browning occurs.
[u]Manual Directions[/u]:1. Add warm water to a small bowl. Sprinkle on the package active dry yeast; do not stir. Cover with a saucer and allow to proof for 5 minutes. Stir and allow to proof for an additional 3 minutes. Mixture should be frothy. If it isn't, discard and start over.
2. In a bowl, mix together flour and salt. Mix in yeast-water mixture and lightly knead in the bowl. Cover and set aside to allow dough to rise, about 1 hour. (You may add whatever seasoning you'd like for a flavored bagel when adding the flour and salt.) Grease a cookie sheet.
3. Cut into eight equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope about 1" thick, wet ends and stick together. Transfer to prepared cookie sheet, cover, and let rest for 15 minutes in a warm place. Preheat oven to 550 degrees F.
4. Fill a wok (or whatever you use) with about 3" water. Place vegan sugar in this water and bring to a boil. Add bagels for 1 minute, turning them as they boil. Drain.
5. Return dough to the greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Bake for 15 minutes, or until desired browning occurs.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i really want to make these, they look delicious! i'm wondering... what's a wok?

A wok is a large saucer-like asian frying pan, usually deep and wide. Im sure you could just use a pot with boiling water and without a significant difference  :)

Yum, yum, yummy!
Used 100% Whole Grain Spelt flour, and a full packet of yeast.
GREAT and super easy bagels.

At first i was thinking this was going to turn out not so good, not because of the recipe but because it just didn't rise, but at the same time, i don't know how long to let yeast sit in the water before adding the flour. i thought i got some bad yeast or something but anyway, i changed it a bit. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. I don't have a bread machine so i used my kitchenaid to mix it, then let it sit ontop of the preheating oven for about an hour, cut it into 12 bagels and let it sit covered on the greased sheet for another hour, hoping it would rise.

i work in a bakery and cook bagels every day (granted they're frozen and parbaked when we get them) and we cook ours at 400 for 12 minutes so i was kinda uncomfortable cooking it at 500. i ended up cooking them at 375 for about 13 minutes. and i put cornmeal on the bottom of them so they wouldn't burn or anything

these were GREAT! i loved them, my mom loved them, even my dad who refuses to eat anything with whole wheat flour thought they were fantastic. i am definately keeping this recipe for future use. thanks so much!  :)

this recipe is fantastic!  i have a bread machine but still sometimes prefer to use my hands.  i did what heatherlynn did and let the yeast and sugar rise in the water.  i halved the mixture as i didn't know how they would turn out (but my fuzzy brain still made all the yeast mixture!).  i also used mostly whole wheat flour, without any gluten, and they turned out really yummy.  so yummy in fact, that i made the other half of the mixture with the rest of the yeast so i was almost glad that my brain went fuzzy!
i'll definitely be making these again, and again, and again!!  i'll post some photos too :)

This recipe is great! I've tried making bagels before, but they were pasty and gross and tasted strange . I used 2 cups unbleached flour + 1 cup whole wheat flour, kneaded by hand, and cooked at 500 degrees for 10 minutes. I sprinkled a layer of corn meal on the greased sheet, and it seemed to keep any bottom burning to a minimum.

Thank you for this recipe!! I've been craving bagels, and since going almost-vegan, I've missed them.
This was my first experience with making bagels...and they turned out perfectly. =)
I substituted 3 cups wholewheat flour and 3 TBS gluten, and baked them at 500 degrees for 8 minutes. They burned slightly on the bottoms, but not badly. I love this recipe and will be making many more batches! Thanks again.

I had to use more water than the recipe called for, but these came out good! I make them all the time now.
