This vegan biscuit recipe is quick and easy and uses just five simple ingredients to make classic biscuits. And there is no milk, butter, eggs, or other animal products, which falls in line with the vegan diet. Most non-vegan biscuit recipes and mixes include milk products or call for them to be added. But you don't have to give up enjoying biscuits because you've adopted a vegan lifestyle.
For equipment, you'll need a rolling pin, baking sheet, and an oven. You'll want to wear an apron to keep flour off of your clothes. And, be warned, you'll be rolling the dough on a floured surface, so there will be cleanup afterward.
This recipe has a good success rate. One reviewer wrote, "I have been struggling with various vegan biscuit recipes, many from vegan cooking icons. This recipe has been the easiest and quickest to follow with the best results."
Enjoy these vegan biscuits any time: for breakfast, snack, lunch, or dinner. They're great to eat alone or with a meal.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (2 ounces) margarine
3/4 cup soy milk, or vegan milk substitute
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Put all the dry ingredients—flour, baking powder, and salt—into a bowl.
Using a fork, blend the margarine into the dry ingredients until the mixture breaks down into fine particles.
Add the soy milk and stir until the particles cling together.
Turn out onto a floured breadboard or countertop and knead the dough for 1 to 2 minutes or until the dough is smooth. Add more flour as needed if the dough is sticky.
With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to about 1/2-inch thickness.
Cut the dough into rounds (a drinking glass works well if you don't have a round cookie cutter), and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
- You can serve the biscuits hot with vegan margarine and jam or with vegetarian gravy for biscuits and gravy.
- Use the biscuits to make breakfast sandwiches with vegan sausage or other toppings.
- Enjoy these vegan biscuits for strawberry shortcake instead of using shortbread or pound cake.
How to Store and Freeze
- Leftover vegan biscuits can be placed in a resealable bag and kept for three to four days. No need to refrigerate unless you prefer to.
- Freeze the biscuits by placing them in a freezer-safe bag. They can be kept frozen for up to one month. Simply remove the number of biscuits you need and let them thaw overnight—perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast treat.
